Hopefully they follow through with their lighting scheme since we have yet to see One57's crown lit up.

:previous: Late to the party, but wow! :previous:
What a render and lighting for the skyline!

This is becoming even more exciting than I had originally visioned.
Just spectacular! :tup:

That's incredible... how did they illuminate the terra cotta like that???

^^^

They use Micheal Sterns own saliva and somehow turn it into a fuel which powers this at night. Stern being one of the super tall gods right next to his counterpart, Barnett. Both towers are powered by their own super conductive, epic saliva. Who needs the energizer bunny anyways? Overate IMO.

Can the energizer bunny bring towers like this? Nope. Thus, that pink bunny sucks and is high on meth.

Are we so sure its getting lit up? Looking at it more, it seems that the metal is reflecting the sunset maybe? Thinking about it more, I wouldnt want to live in a building thats lit up at night, would be kind of annoying when trying to go to sleep.

I remember them saying something about the building being lit in one of those SHoP videos posted earlier. From the clip in the link, it looks illuminated. Any lighting would be on the eastern and western sides, away from any windows.


The building itself will have a pattern that's visible both day and night.

The building’s terra cotta and bronze exterior will be illuminated at night to mark its rightful place amidst the NYC skyline.

.....Its supertall condo building at 111 West 57th Street in Manhattan will culminate in a 200-foot spire that Pasquarelli said has no function other than to be “a piece of beauty in the air.” And its nearly windowless east and west facades will be covered in sinuous terra cotta panels that hint of tradition, even at dizzying heights.

So the white panels are terra-cotta?

Are the gold design elements metal?

They are pure bronze. It's going to be amazing.

Also the white panels are a mix of terra cotta, and ceramic.

This building will rival the Empire State Building in design. We haven't seen something built like this since the 1930's design wise too.

Sic'EmBears Oct 14, 2015 3:25 AM

Thank you, Roadcruiser.

The design is a beautiful balance of both modern and deco.

CPT will look even more uninspired (no pun intended) once both of these monsters are built.

Ok this building might be my new favorite out of the New York developments. Modern Rockefeller anyone?

You could move the thin spire from the NY Times tower and add it to this, it will fit in much better. :rolleyes:

No problem.

Bronze. It's expensive. Bronze helped make the Seagram building "the world's most expensive skyscraper at the time" according to wiki, and I have seen that observation made elsewhere. I love Art Deco and 111 W 57th just blows my mind.

Roadcruiser1 Oct 15, 2015 1:57 AM

You can read the Curbed Article here for the details on the building materials. :). http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2015/0..._look_like.php

I always compare it to the Woolworth Building. SHoP got some inspiration from there, and it also happens to be their home headquarters.

Meanwhile, it looks like this tower wasn't just hot on looks...

Just to the west of Mr. Witkoff’s project, at 111 West 57th Street, a development group this summer secured $725 million in debt from
American International Group Inc. and Apollo Global Management LLC for a tower that would rise higher than the Empire State Building.

“We had more interest than we expected” from lenders, said Michael Stern, the project’s developer. “We had no less than four legitimate offers.”

Holy Christ this building just keeps getting more and more amazing. The building could possibly bring in a new era of classical yet modern designs and maybe put an end to generic glass towers. That could just be wishful thinking though.

Wishful yeah! But definitely possible. We could use more modern towers with antiquated styles.

What a beauty. One of many in NY.
