While I certainly hope you're right, however I don't think the answer to this question is as absolute as you suggest. It depends on what kind of jurisdiction Landmarks has over this tower (i.e. how its situated on the site, how it incorporates the Steinway Building, etc). I've worked on a lot of Landmarks projects. Once they insisted on reviewing our building that was located immediately adjacent to a Landmarks district because it cast shadows within the district. I don't think this kind of situation will be the cast here given that an as of right tower was previously proposed here, however LPC can be unpredictable.

I once worked on a rooftop addition project in SoHo that got approval from the CB, only to then be rejected by Landmarks.

Anyway, fingers crossed that this is approved and built as planned. I think it looks amazing!

JayPro Sep 9, 2013 11:44 PM

I'd think that as long as the building thay Landmarks is looking to protect remains untouched in any way, there shouldn't be any issue. This seems more so especially since everyone knows how much tax $$$ can be reaped from the tower's potential residents.
Besides, it would seem to me that civic groups/NIMBY's/6-to-1-half-a-dozen-to-the-other would be more likely to dismiss or vote down something...anything AAMOF...just because. Also, Sbarn mentions a project in SoHo that received the double moutza. NIMBYism seems to me much stronger there, as is evinced (for one thing) by the extremely conservative building height.
57th is a different kettle, though. Regardless, I dare whatever enclave of NIMBY's there are in this burgeoning corridor to challenge this tower's current status on whatever grounds they see fit to pull out of their fiber-holes.

I think the Nimby's just lost the war. The postcards of Central Park are all going to look different in a few years. The suspense lies in 225 W 57th street. There are yet to be renderings.

You misunderstand. This tower doesn't need CB support at all, I mentioned it because the CB would normally be the NIMBY arm opposed to the development.

JDS has already filed permits for altering the landmark (only the lower portion of the building is landmarked), and has been cooperating with the LPC. It's more of a formality that they approve work there, but keep in mind also that Barnett's Nordstrom tower had issues with getting landmarks approval to do demo there. It has to be done right. And although integrated into the landmark building, JDS still owns the air rights, and can build as of right without the landmark. The landmark approval has more to do with what JDS plans for Steinway Hall.

I'll repost this article concerning the landmark building, which would now include some of the interiors as well...

Opulent Piano Retail Space Considered as a Potential Interior Landmark
Owner’s representative expressed support for designation; testified that landmark would be preserved in context of planned larger development.

Quote:

On July 23, 2013, the Landmarks Preservation Commission held a hearing on the potential designation of the reception room and adjoining rooms and hallways of the Steinway & Sons retail space at 109 West 57th Street in Manhattan. The neo-Renaissance interior was completed in 1928 to designs by the firm of Warren & Wetmore. Warren & Wetmore was the architecture firm behind several other City landmarks, including the interior of Grand Central Terminal.

The primary interior space is an octagonal double-height rotunda, in which customers were met by sales representatives before entering the showrooms. The room features a crystal chandelier and allegorical paintings, by Swiss-Austrian painter Angelica Kauffman, adorn the domed ceiling. The room is visible from the street through large display windows. A foyer on the 57th Street entrance possesses white marble arches on Ionic columns on its four walls. Though some rooms are separated by glass or glazed infill, the interior reads as one continuous space.

Michael Stern, Managing Partner of JDS Development Group, testified that the ownership enthusiastically supported designation. JDS purchased the property in 2013, and intends to build a tower at the site. Stern said that JDS “look forward to integrating the rotunda into a larger development.”

The Historic Districts Council’s Nadezhda Williams, speaking in support of designation, said that “seeing an elegant Steinway piano in such sumptuous surroundings is rather like seeing an animal in their natural habitat.” Christabel Gough, of the Society for the Architecture of the City, said the “iconic New York institution” served to “express the grandeur and importance of the concert piano” in the City’s culture.

Chair Robert B. Tierney closed the hearing after thanking JDS for their “cooperation and participation.” A date for a vote on designation has not yet been scheduled.

Keeping Up With the Super-Tall Joneses: SHoP Designs Another Manhattan Skyscraper

Quote:

Manhattan’s 57th Street continues its ascent as New York City’s new gold coast with a skinny skyscraper unveiled by SHoP Architects and JDS Development today. SHoP most recently celebrated the groundbreaking of another skyscraper for JDS along the East River, but has now been tapped to build a lean, luxury high-rise on West 57th Street that could climb to a whopping 1,350 feet tall.

Stepping back from the street as it rises, the quarter-mile-high skyscraper will emulate steps and be clad in bronze-and-white terra-cotta stripes. SHoP partner, Vishaan Chakrabarti, told the WSJ the materials would create an effect that ”sparkles during the day and has a soft glow at night.” The developers were able to add height to the building by purchasing air rights from other properties in the vicinity.

Elsewhere on 57th Street, BIG is building a pyramidal “court-scraper,” Raphael Viñoly has designed the 1,380-foot-tall 432 Park Tower, Christian de Portzamparc’s One57 tower is nearing completion, Cetra Ruddy has designed an ultra-skinny 51 story tower, and SOM’s Roger Duffy is planning a prismatic, 57-story tower. Chicago’s skyscraper experts, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, have also been tapped to design a skyscraper near 57th and Broadway, but no design has been released.

The developers said they hope to break ground by 2014.

The one thing that bugs me here is how the facade all around looks almost laminated.

MarshallKnight Sep 10, 2013 1:05 AM

:previous: Is it just me, or does it look like the sections are slightly concave? Very cool wrinkle if that's true. And the apparent pinstripes are great.

I'm also not 100% sold on the design only because we have only seen this angle (honestly not a great first-reveal render), but I'm already salivating at the prospect of further reveals.

ILNY Sep 10, 2013 1:22 AM

Nice design, this building will dictate new style in NYC - supertall superthin. Since there is harder to find big lots and small lots are more available I see more of this type of towers being build in the future. It already started with 432 Park ...more to follow. I will wait for final design and height though, just don't want to be disappointed like with Nortsdrom.

Roadcruiser1 Sep 10, 2013 1:50 AM

Just as I feared. A close up proved that I was correct. The only think that makes this building even halfway decent is the terracotta stripes. Otherwise it did be dead to me!!!!!!!!!!

JayPro Sep 10, 2013 2:05 AM

To deviate briefly, Nordsrom's final design release will IMO only disappoint to the measure that the viewer's opinion has already been formulated from secondhand descriptions and his mind refuses to be changed.

In other words, if green and curvy--as 225's final look has been loosely described and construed by a few not exactly in the loop--reminds the viewer of a lasagna noodle with guacamole added for coloring, and that somehow forces an extrapolation to an envisioned final product, it IMO figures that the extrapolator won't like what he sees even before he sees it.

But color me 110% certain that the whole Landmarks Committee will greenlight this, as NYGuy's more detailed explanations of the convoluted processes involved bear out. I for one don't see how the dimensions of this structure interfere in any way with the one they're looking to protect. And it's not as if we're dealing with a Sauron's army of NIMBY's either, thank God...at least those at the mid-to-bottom level chain of command.
What's more, Amanda Burden and her bean-counters have kept a profile bordering flatline.

That's what happens when you don't need a special permit. As a matter of fact, of all the tallest residential proposals under construction or nearing, only the Tower Verre needed to go through that long and torturous process. I think developers prefer to take the road with no roadblocks, save financing.

Yeah...I also seem to notice something about this tower's geometry that says SMH...S for scratch in confusion. It makes me want to keep going back to look for what it is.
PS: THey did a lousy superimposition job. It's all the more flagrant as the image gets blown up. "First public release image out the proverbial door" is no excuse. The finer details ought to be conspicuous at the outset.

I'm dying for a rendering from the Central Park side.

sparkling Sep 10, 2013 7:40 AM

That's from the JDS Development group website "JDS Development Group is currently developing 105-111 West 57th Street, a luxury condominium tower and conversion of the landmark Steinway building. The property is located within walking distance of a wealth of New York City’s most notable leisure points of interests, including Central Park, Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, the Museum of Modern Art, and the world-famous Fifth Avenue and 57th Street shopping districts.

The project will offer both landmark conversion product and new modern product with shared recreation spaces and lobby, and will feature a large retail component. With frontage on 57th Street and 58th Street, the project will create a dramatic street presence and benefit from its prime Midtown location at the epicenter of Manhattan’s premier international shopping, tourist and commercial districts.

105-111 West 57th Street is a joint development with strategic partner Property Markets Group"
What do you think they mean by "shared spaces and lobby"- the Steinway will be incorporated into the new building thus allowing for a larger footprint or simply they will connect the two buildings with a door/doors

I'm intrigued by this design and look forward to more renderings.

To my eye, and only having this view, its form looks heavily influenced by nature/organic materials, specifically blades of grass or other long, thin leaves and stems. It makes sense that SHoP (and other firms) would look to nature for inspiration on how to engineer very thin yet strong structures, or at least reference them proportionally/aesthetically.

My theory about this influence could disappear once we get more angles of the building of course. :)

In my mind, it's been more of a giant bamboo stick. But the building itself will be sort of a giant spire. I think we will be seeing more of these super tall, super thin buildings.

I can only imagine the engineering that is going to go into this. A tower that is thinner then 432 park ave, and roughly or close to the height; its going to require an insane psi in the concrete.

scalziand Sep 11, 2013 2:33 AM

I would say 14,000 psi minimum, maybe higher.

Here's an application of 19,000 psi 2 decades ago.

Based on the renderings it looks like a waterfall. Almost like steps that seem to get shorter as the height increases. Has a slick and water-flowing facade to it.

STEINWAY HALL INTERIOR STRIKES A CHORD WITH THE LANDMARKS PRESERVATION COMMISSION
First-Floor Reception Room and Hallway of Famed Piano Manufacturer’s Showroom on West 57th Street Named New York City’s 116th Interior Landmark



Sept. 10, 2013


Quote:

The Landmarks Preservation Commission today gave unanimous approval to the interior landmark designation of the lavish first-floor reception room and an adjacent hallway at Steinway Hall, the landmark office building at 109 West 57th St. commissioned by the piano manufacturer to house its showrooms and headquarters. Completed in 1925, the 16-story office building and reception room were designed by Walter L. Hopkins, an architect with the celebrated firm of Warren and Wetmore, which was responsible for some of the city’s best-known buildings, such as Grand Central Terminal. Steinway Hall was named a City landmark in 2001.

The neo-Renaissance style reception room, which is visible from the street, served as a circulation hub where Steinway representatives met musicians, visitors and potential customers before escorting them to the piano showrooms or to the “piano bank,” where musicians select instruments needed for a concert or tour. The space consists of a double-height, octagonal rotunda featuring a crystal chandelier hanging from a domed ceiling decorated with hand-painted allegorical murals of nymphs, goddesses, animals and musical instruments. White marble arches that rest on fluted Ionic columns flanked by green marble pilasters are set within large four arched walls and linked by a continuous marble cornice.

“Given how little it’s has changed over the years and the incredible talent it’s served, the rotunda is a monument not only to architecture and music, but also Steinway & Sons itself,” said Commission Chairman Robert B. Tierney. “It’s one of the most sumptuous retail spaces in New York City and has remained remarkably intact for nearly 90 years.

...To qualify for interior landmark status, a space must be at least 30 years old, architecturally, historically or architecturally significant and be customarily accessible by the public. The space comprising the Steinway Hall reception room and hallway is the City’s 116th interior landmark, joining other renowned spaces such as the Rainbow Room and the lobbies of the Woolworth and Chrysler buildings.

Hudson Yards and Manhattan West all have very large footprints. But I do see your point. I'd say Brooklyn is the key if you want large footprints. Manhattan is pretty much over built; well once those particular areas such as the west side are filled up. It will eventually spread to the other boroughs. But this is years and years of planning of course. The whole east side rezoning will generate massive towers.

The WTC and ESB are office buidlings. You don't compare office with residential. Look to the office buildings being planned if you want large footprints.

It impacts this building because it is a landmarked building, or at least portions of it, and its being incorporated to make this a larger development. As far as being preserved, JDS is one developer that has a particular taste for preserving old buildings, and would probably be converting Steinway Hall even without the taller portion.

Walker tower has already been very successful...

Giants in Our Midst
The first of the 1,000-footers stomps onto 57th Street.


By Justin Davidson
Sep 15, 2013


Quote:

...The plutocratization of the midtown skyline is just getting under way. It will be months before the first moving trucks pull up to One57 (and a year before the Park Hyatt at its base opens), but already the building is destined to be the shorty in a lineup of giants. A few doors down, the gracious Steinway Hall will be getting a stalky neighbor, a third again as tall as One57. There’s hope for that one: SHoP has proposed a bronzed feather tricked out with glazed terra-cotta tiles, which could provide some of the texture and detail that make the Woolworth Building so lovable.

...Manhattan is acquiring two comically distinct types of glass super-skyscrapers: the fat office building like the Bank of America Tower, its girth ample enough to accommodate a trading floor; and the skinny residential shaft, just thick enough for a full-floor duplex with windows all around. These architectural Laurels and Hardys are staking out different neighborhoods, and the zoning along 57th Street is superbly tailored to the desires of the ­ultrarich, allowing very tall towers on narrow lots. But as technology and economics keep pushing upward, the city has an interest in seeing that the tallest new buildings are both necessary and good.

The Verre Tower will complement this nicely. It kinda looks like it in the rendering, at least at first glance it shows hints of the tower Verre design.

This is going to look amazing with 432 Park!! Tho I do hope the Nordstrom tower does end up taller to punctuate the 57th street skyline. I really look forward to spending more time on the Great Lawn.
