Smile NEW YORK | 175 Greenwich St. | 1,170' Pinnacle / 1,080' Roof | 80 FLOORS





Lord Rogers’s Tower 3 at 175 Greenwich Street, between Dey and Cortlandt Streets, is a flat-topped building with asymmetrical shoulders and the diagonal beams of the exoskeletal framework seem to echo the rooftop of Tower 2. The building will rise 1,155 feet, reaching the higher pinnacle at the antennas. It will have five trading floors, three retail floors, nine mechanical floors and 54 floors of offices, for a total of 71 stories.

Cortlandt Street will be kept open between Tower 3 and Tower 4. The Port Authority had originally proposed constructing a shopping arcade that would join the buildings’ bases, but city officials objected to the loss of an open corridor between the memorial and the rest of Lower Manhattan.

i understand why JP Morgan wants to control its own tower but its not an ideal situation at tower 5. Here they have 5 fully adaptable trading floors at their disposal. It seems like a great oppertunity. They have to stop their petty power plays (ooh, im gonna move to stamford) decide on tower 5 or decide on tower 2 before someone else comes in and swipes tower 2's trading floors away from them.

To me J.P. Morgan had a perfectly fine building a few blocks away. Why they sold it I don't know (possibly because it was too small). This can go either way for me. This can pan out to be a very nice tower if negotiations are worked out or they can pull out and a flimsy residential tower can go up. To me you want these guys hanging around because they'll ensure a large office tower for that spot. If they take tower 2, then the tower 5 spot could not be as large.

2nd best design in the WTC complex. I really like how the tower is on the farside of the property, away from the memorial site.

I'm a big Rogers fan but I can't think of anything he has done that is as good as the rendering for wtc3. New York is so damn lucky.

I don't like this design. It reminds me of the NY Times tower which looked cool in renders but average in photos.

Certain details of the facade - like the screens at the top - remind me of the NY Times tower. I hope Rogers considers how that building turned out before finalizing his plans.

The screens at the top are not the problem with the NYTIMES. Its the rods. The screens here are glass and should look brilliant along with the rest of the tower. No rods, just steel and glass in a compact, gotham-modern design.

It works well with the FT and is very "gotham modern" IMO. It should be a stunner.

The problem with 3 WTC is it has too much detail. The Other towers are plain, but unique in their own way. The braceing on the tower is very cool, but dosnt belong in the complex. Maybe it would be better off without the exterior braceing.
