Checking In On The Facade Renovation at 388-390 Greenwich Street, Tribeca

Across from Piers 25 & 26, 388-390 Greenwich Street has stood for nearly 30 years as one of the tallest skyscrapers in Tribeca. Located just north of the Borough of Manhattan Community College, it is has been home to Citigroup’s New York headquarters since their repurchase of the building in 2016, after selling to SL Green for $1.6 billion back in 2007. The 39-story tower at 388 Greenwich Street sits connected to an adjacent nine-story building at 390 Greenwich Street, which Citigroup has also leased. Both components are in the midst of a major renovation of the lower exterior facades, led by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, with interior architecture by Gensler.
