29 Sep Rafael Viñoly’s 125 Greenwich Street hits the market
Move-ins are expected to start in September 2019BY ZOE ROSENBER SEP 29, 2017 It’s been a long time coming, but the day is finally here: Rafael Viñoly’s Financial District skyscraper at 125 Greenwich Street has hit the market. The sales launch comes along with a deluge of new information about the building—including interior renderings, floorplans, finishes, and pricing—much of which has been kept under wraps as the highly secretive project by Bizzi & Partners has plodded forward. A New York Times visit earlier this month to the building’s sales gallery, on the showy 84th floor of One World Trade Center, illuminated new details about 125 Greenwich’s layout. Unlike the slew of other new pricey condo buildings that have come online in the past few years, 125 Greenwich Street will turn the model of larger, pricier condos at the top of the building on its head. Namely, studios will begin on the building’s 61st floor, with amenities capping the top three floors of the 912-foot tower. As Marc Palermo, a senior vice president at Douglas Elliman Development Marketing, told the Times, “With all the amenities at the top of the building, everyone has an opportunity to live at the top—not only that one special buyer.” Those building-topping amenities will include a 50-foot infinity pool, a gym and yoga studio, and a private dining and entertaining room. The 273 apartments range from studios to three-bedrooms and penthouses. The apartments won’t have private outdoor space, with the exception of a full-floor condo on the building’s 16th floor. That anomaly of a condo is the on one of the floors that include the building’s signature cutouts. The building’s other cutouts occur on the 17th, and 57th through 60th floors, though those floors will house mechanical equipment. The condos are designed by March & White, who made a name for themselves designing superyacht interiors. The apartments here take clear cues from the firm’s past experience with rounded counter corners, kitchen cabinet doors that can be tucked away when open, and hidden appliances. The finishes are certainly sumptuous, too, with buyers able to pick between three finish palettes: an Ancient Grey marble package called Aqua, a Silver Brown Wave marble package called Terra, or a Fior di Pesco Carnico marble package called Stratus. Sales launched with apartments priced from $1.275 million for a 418-square-foot studio, the smallest condo in the building, to $6 million for a 1,665-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom.
