125 Greenwich Street (also known as 22 Thames Street) is a residential skyscraper being built in the Financial District in Lower Manhattan, New York City. The tower is two blocks south of One World Trade Center on the site of the former Western Electric building,[2] and directly across from the site of the demolished Deutsche Bank Building. The building was designed by architect Rafael Viñoly, with interiors designed by British duo March & White. When complete, the tower will stand at a height of 912 feet (278 m), making it the 20th tallest building in the city.

History[edit]

In September 2014, it was announced that the tower would stand 1,356 feet (413 m), with 77 floors and 128 residential units.[3] The foundation of the building was completed in June 2016.[4] In 2017, the building's height was revised to 912 feet (278 m), with 88 floors and 273 units.[5]

Design[edit]

The tower has distinctly rounded corners with curved floor-to-ceiling glass. The building is nearly column-free, and two I-beam-shaped shear walls that run vertically through the slender tower support the floors of the building.[6] The top three floors contain amenities including entertainment space, private dining rooms, a fitness center, lap pool, and a spa. The building will contain 273 apartments that will come in studios through three-bedroom variants.[7]
