PROJECT DESCRIPTION

In an unconventional approach to current residential tower design in New York City, the 125 Greenwich Street design opts for a shorter building with a larger floor plate, a context-sensitive solution that also creates more generous apartment layouts. With a rounded corner and a glass façade on the perimeter of the site, the parallelogram-shaped tower creates a landmark residential condominium project.

Built as two side-by-side monumental I-beams rotated 90 degrees into the sky, the tower’s uncommon structure is especially resistant to wind forces and makes possible a more flexible mix of residential units with wide open vistas over the city and the harbor. With a reduced setback requirement and a nearly column-free interior, the tower’s floor plan accommodates both generosity and flexibility in planning the 273 apartment layouts. The resulting parallelogram-shaped residential floor plates rise up a height 912 feet, 88 stories high in a prism that captures nearby and distant views for residents.

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 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 the occupants of every apartment unit panoramic views of New York City. At ground level, three floors of retail space line the front of Greenwich and Thames.
