Soaring above the heart of Manhattan, this newly constructed ultra-luxury condo building stands 77-storeys high, showcasing the world's skinniest tower featuring 55 apartments. These condos are designed by SHoP Architects and are the development of JDS, exhibiting a modern architectural landmark with a striking façade.
The interiors are Studio Sofield's vision of a modern, cosmopolitan living with generous use of space, duplex living rooms, and custom-made kitchens embellished with high-end appliance packages and fittings. The floor-to-ceiling windows frame spectacular views of the city and Central Park in natural light, while the wooden floors give a historical touch to the meticulously detailed interiors. A lengthy list of amenities is kept well-administered to ensure convenient living for the residents.
There may be other skyscrapers, but “there will never ever be another”…111 West 57th Street.
Surely, Harry Warren was not thinking about the building when he wrote the lyrics for the song for the movie, “Iceland” with Sonja Henie, but Irving Berlin would have probably have had something witty to say about this really slim and dapper skyscraper in search of a place to hang its “top hat” up in the clouds.
It doesn’t dance, of course, but you know its strut, ole 111 West 57th Street, the belle of the SuperTalls.
At 1,421 feet high, this 77-story tower will have 55 apartments and be one of the tallest in the city and the Western Hemisphere, but it is small by the standards of the Mideast and Asia. Its height increased from 1,397 feet earlier in 2014 when it planned to surpass the 1,392-foot-high 432 Park Avenue two blocks to the east.
This tower is much taller, of course, than Extell Development’s One57, just down the block to the west, which is only 1,004 feet tall. Extell, however, may have the last guffaw when it completes its 1,761-foot-high, 225 West 57th Street one block to the west.
From the small site at this location of a thrift fur store comes forth a jewel of a very tall organ with swirling pipes that uses the air rights of Steinway Hall.
Designed by SHoP Architects, who designed the wonderful, small building known as The Porter House on West 15th Street at Ninth Avenue, it was developed by JDS, which is headed by Michael Stern, and Property Markets Group, which is headed by Kevin P. Maloney.
Foundation work began in 2014 and completion is planned for 2018.
