My only problem with the above rendering of the building is that they would have to get the glass and exposed concrete finish just right to look as good that image suggests. Even though the concrete shear walls aren't attractive at least they're broken up so its not just one wide lifeless side of the building. They could also still pull a 220 CPS move and put some fake windows over the exposed shear walls. I doubt this one will come out looking as good as 50 West Street regardless of the glass

Updated Renderings for 125 Greenwich Released


Quote:
Lower Manhattan is the most densely populated county in America, with 70,826 people per square mile. This density in population calls for building upward, and developers in the area have answered the call by building plenty of skyscrapers. One of the newest additions to Manhattan's soaring skyline will be 125 Greenwich, an 88-storey condominium building. Located in the financial district, 125 Greenwich will offer 275 compact housing units ranging from 400-square-foot studios to 2500-square-foot three-bedroom apartments. The building was designed by Raphael Vinoly Architects and developed by Michael Shvo, Bizzi + Partners Development, and Howard Lorber’s Vector Group.

the construction appears to have reached street level, as seen in photos by rbrome on NY YIMBY's forums.

That huge vertical exposed concrete wall has a great potential to look like shit when finished. It doesn't even look good on the rendering...

It's above ground indeed. Still pretty slow compared to 111 Murray just a few blocks down, which started excavation after this one and is already above ground.



It will be fun watching it rise from Liberty Park.

Why are there no cranes yet? I'm sure it will pick up speed then.

Seems like the roof will reach 898' and the crown will take it to around 1000'

http://vinoly.com/works/125-greenwich-street/
Quote:
VIÑOLY requested a zoning variance that would allow for a building perimeter with larger floor plates in exchange for a reduced building height from the previously approved scheme—70 stories down from the permitted 85. The lower height provides a respectful adjacency to the buildings on the new World Trade Center complex that are newly built and under construction. Despite the larger footprint, the tower extends its glass façade, more than its structural mass, to the site edge. Two I-beam-shaped shear walls support the building core and eliminate all but four of the interior columns.

With a reduced setback requirement and a nearly column-free interior, the tower’s floor plan accommodates both generosity and flexibility in planning the apartment layouts. The resulting parallelogram-shaped residential floor plates rise up a height of 274 meters (898 feet), in a prism that captures nearby and distant views for residents. Floor-to-ceiling glazing opens up the units to light and expansive views, while open dining/kitchen configurations and comfortable living and sleeping areas generate a perception that the units are larger than they are.

Hexagonal mechanical floors, which act as structural wind breaks, sit in between the two large volumes of residential units. These mechanical floors also act as a visual break in the tower’s glass façade as it rises from an 8-story base. Amenities for residents, including conferencing facilities, fitness and spa facilities, a grotto, squash courts, a library, game area, demo kitchen, and tech bar, crown the building. Locating these facilities in the upper floors rather than on a residential floor gives each apartment unit a panoramic view of New York City.

At ground level, three floors of retail space line both street facades. These lower-level floor plates extend to the property line, reinforcing the street edge and forming an active urban backdrop to the World Trade Center’s cultural and civic spaces to the north.

Whatever I might think of the exterior aesthetics, I certainly can't help but appreciate Viñoly's adherence to function-before-form:

These apartments are going to be spectacular, and in that regard, this tower is sure to be a success.

In the case of 432 Park, it wasn't until it was nearly finished that I began to appreciate how it looked on top of that abstract appreciation of the architect's process and principles. I find the renders of this tower to be pretty awkward too (although maybe not as jarring as I thought 432 was when it was first revealed), so here's hoping that it also turns out better once it's constructed.

this tower might need to get the cane from the supertalls section. This contextual rendering clearly depicts the tower shorter than the 977' Four WTC.

Well... given that they're building the a new Orthodox church and adjacent park directly on top of where the Deutsche Bank tower used to sit, I'm gonna go with "never".
