Cladding on 150 Greenwich is now just three floors from the parapet, and it looks brilliant–even in the dull February sun. The glass along the tower’s base has also come a long ways, and 150 Greenwich is looking like it should open on time in 2014.
As construction on Maki’s masterpiece wraps up, the base of 175 Greenwich–aka Three World Trade Center–is taking shape. Even without the actual tower, the building’s podium is imposing all on its own. The first of 175 Greenwich’s diagonal cross-beams have been installed along the tower’s Church Street side, as well.
Progress on the base of Three World Trade Center has been phenomenal, comparing the latest photos with the last update from July. As the Manhattan office market heats up, rumors continue circulating that many firms are interested in the space, particularly Group M (per The Real Deal). Once Silverstein secures a lease for at least 400,000 square feet of space, the tower will finally begin to rise.
