‘the greenwich by rafael viñoly’ expected in 2024
In March 2019, a luxury residential tower designed by the late architect Rafael Viñoly had topped out at 125 Greenwich Street in New York City. Since then, the project had been been temporarily paused and has towered, incomplete, amidst the skyline of lower Manhattan. Now, the team has announced that construction has resumed. In celebration of this news, and in honor of its late designer, the skyscraper has received a new name: The Greenwich by Rafael Viñoly. Once it reaches completion, expected in 2024, it will represent one of Viñoly’s final and most remarkable projects for the city — joining his famous ultra-skinny supertall at 432 Park Avenue.
Román Viñoly, son of Rafael Viñoly and Director of Rafael Viñoly Architects comments: ‘My father loved people. He was endlessly curious about how they live their lives and how the spaces he designed for them could contribute to their sense of well-being. The Greenwich is designed to elevate the human experience in a building that celebrates its unique location in the greatest city in the world.’

the 88-story tower will be a tribute to the late architect
The Greenwich by Rafael Viñoly is an 88-story tower at 125 Greenwich Street that will soon redefine the ever-changing skyline of downtown Manhattan.

272 new luxury homes at 125 greenwich street
Inside The Greenwich by Rafael Viñoly, residents will experience the architect’s vision brought to life by critically acclaimed interiors firm MAWD. The architecture was originally envisioned to be defined by its structural elegance, standing slender and tall amidst its exceptional surroundings. This vision led to the creation of a unique structural concept — an exposed concrete column that runs the entire height of the building, lending it an identity that is recognizable and robust. Complementing this strong core is a curved glass facade that adds a contrasting sense of lightness.
The Greenwich by Rafael Viñoly will introduce 272 luxury residences to the city, ranging from studios to three-bedroom apartments, as well as a suite of penthouse residences. Many of these units will open towards panoramic views of the Hudson River, Statue of Liberty, World Trade Center, and the iconic New York City skyline. Over 27,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor leisure, health, and wellness amenities spread across four floors. Sky-high amenity floors will be located in the tower’s crown, perched over 800 feet over the city. Here, residents will have access to a lap pool, spa, and fitness center, all with views of Manhattan and beyond.
