A residential tower planned for lower Manhattan will soar 1,356 feet in the air -- just 12 feet shy of 1 World Trade Center.

 

When built, 125 Greenwich St. will become lower Manhattan's second tallest building and tallest residential building.

 

The project, formerly known as 22 Thames, was purchased byMichael Shvo and Bizzi & Partners for $185 million in a deal that closed last week, according to the Real Deal.

 

Renderings show the 77 story building will be thin, with high ceilings and an estimated 128 units.
