Updated Sept. 4 11:52: While a first look began circulating this week for Michael Shvo’s 125 Greenwich Street — a development poised to become Downtown’s tallest residential skyscraper — a rep for Shvo indicated the renderings are for massing purposes and will be subject to further revisions.

Shvo now owns the $240 million condominium development, which was formerly known as 22 Thames. The deal closed last week. 

Rafael Vinoly, who is the architect of record, designed the proposed 77-story condo tower, which will only be 12 feet shorter than One World Trade Center, according to YIMBY. This also means it’ll be the second tallest tower in downtown Manhattan.

The building will include a total of 128 units, ten of which will be 5,300-square-foot, full-floor penthouses. A 10,600-square-foot duplex will occupy the top of the tower. [NY YIMBY] — Claire Moses

    he always enters the market at the top and fails

      closing a quarter billion dollar project in 90 days doesnt look like a failure to me

        you’re absolutely right. He jumps in and cant complete his projects. The well runs dry at the most important stage. The finish

          Developer Shvo hasnt failed to finish any of his new deals yet…they are all under pre development planning, and his partners seem to be the types to make sure things are completed. Unless you can predict the future, which would be pretty neat.

    Only ten floors of “penthouses”? Why not 77?
