111 West 57 Street

The skinniest tower of them all, if not in the world, is 111 West 57 Street, located between Sixth and Seventh Avenues in New York. At a height of 1,350 feet, it sits on a lot that is only 60 feet wide (or 18 meters). Incredibly slender, every unit in the tower, which starts on the 17th floor, will be a full floor residence comprised of no more than 4,000 or 5,000 square feet - a great building for those who don’t want any neighbors! In addition, like One57, the building will almost bisect the park, creating amazing symmetrical views of Central Park to the North. Covered in bronze and terracotta strips, taking notes from New York’s buildings of the past, the building will have a number of setbacks along 57th Street that are the basis for it’s nickname Stairway to Heaven. The façade of the landmarked Steinway Building, which sits on the site, will be preserved, but the remaining part of the building will be demolished and used as amenity floors and residences. This super skinny tower, designed by SHoP Architects, will have only 80 units, including duplexes and a four-story penthouse. Combine the unique design, outrageous symmetrical views of Central Park, the successful team that brought us the exquisite restoration and renovation of Walker Tower (JDS and PMG), along with the full floor concept, and I think we have a great contender here. Occupancy anticipated in 2017.    Exclusively marketed by:  TBA. To learn more about each of the Ultra-Luxury 7 buildings developing along the 57th Street corridor, click on the links below:
