First Floorplan for the 'World's Skinniest Skyscraper,' Revealed

"...The SHoP-designed superscraper will reach more than 1,400 feet, but will only contain 45 apartments. There's also a rendering of the view from way up there…"

Only 45 apartments and over 1,400 ft.? Sounds good to me. The floorplans look pretty impressive, and nice to see they're starting to release the layouts and marketing materials.

These apartments will be enormous. I assume these will be more expensive than 432 Park. Obviously with the building so skinny, you assume the units are small, but the opposite is true, because these are all full-floors, at a minimum.

That "dude" isn't "bulding the tower by himself". How many times do I have to point out to you ridiculous people what's going on at the site?




Love it.

Move over 432 Park, there’s a taller, slimmer and sexier ultra-luxury residential tower coming to Midtown. At the Municipal Art Society’s 2014 Summit for NYC, Simon Koster, Principal at JDS Development Group, provided the audience with a compelling presentation on how our ideals can serve as the basis in how we shape our city. The restored crown of Stella Tower, the East River mega-rental project at 616 First Avenue, and 111 West 57th Street’s discretionary approval by the Landmarks Preservation Commission were used as relevant examples.

And the 57th Street project really caught our eye. The 1,400+ foot tower will also become the slimmest building in the world with a slenderness ratio of 1:23. Its narrow profile and stepped crown evoke the romantic art-deco towers of the 1920s and ’30s and other timeless city landmarks. SHoP Architects are the designers and WSP Group are the engineers/magicians making sure things remain upright.

In regards to 111 West 57th, Koster notes that the Landmarks-approved façade is the most intricate curtain wall ever designed for a modern residential building. The east and west elevations of the building are load-bearing walls clad in an energetic pattern of terra-cotta panels with bronze filigree details that create a dynamic play of light and shadow. The glass curtain walls on the north and south facades provide sweeping views of Central Park and Midtown. And like a god looking down from Mt. Olympus, the stunning image shown above depicts what such an upper-floor view looking south would be. As if that were not enough, the tower will also have front-and-center views of Central Park to the north.

That is one gorgeous render, and now over 1400ft? wow. Best supertall design going up anywhere in this country...:tup:

Meh its too skinny IMO. fits well in New York with all the other super skinny towers, but it looks like a stick. with this and 432 park going up the empire state building is going to feel bad about itself :haha:

The King already got grumpy when 432 PA topped out. :P I hear Malkin decided not to showcase the 57th street towers on the skyline posters in the ESB. Pathetic.

As for this building:

It's a joke. Relax.


I love the floor plans, this tower is going to be quite amazing. I'll have a great view from my job just like I did with 0ne57.

Can't wait for the rising to begin!

This is a great building in every way, but imagine if that brass and terracotta facade was wrapped around the entire building instead of just the sides. That would be truly special. The facade is a perfect nod to old New York while simultaneously taking New York into the next generation of architecture. Superior to Nordrstom and 432 Park in every way.

I. Just. Can't. WAIT!

The over 1400 ft hasn't been confirmed. The speculation is that because the height on the building permit is 1397 ft, the tower itself must be higher. That isn't always the case, and may not be the case here.

And a poor one at that. Our trolls used to have better quality. (Also, you relax).

Anyway, this is turning out to be even more fantastic a design than thought. I demand to see more of it.

The Best Forumer Nov 21, 2014 7:36 PM

This is a very nice looking tower. Very skinny too. :)

Here's a sweet and handy guide using those cityrealty renders...

NYC’s skyline will be radically different in 2018

The high times aren’t going away in New York.

The city of just six years from now will be dramatically taller, with a series of luxury high-rises towering above Central Park, a new West Side development and downtown spires.

“The skyline is changing so much,” said Ondel Hylton, content director for CityRealty, the real-estate search site that generated this rendering of New York in the near future.
“To see [the towers] together in one image takes people by surprise. A lot of people are shocked.”

The mega-developments include the 96-story 432 Park Ave., which at 1,396 feet is the tallest residential property in the western hemisphere.

The 104-unit condo, where one penthouse sold for $95 million, is slated to open next year.

The Nordstrom Tower — at 225 W. 57th St. — will rival it at 92 stories once completed in 2018.

At 1,775 feet tall, it will be the city’s second-tallest building and just a foot shorter than One World Trade Center (and that’s only if you include the WTC spire).

Here’s a rundown of what buildings will reach for the sky.

53W53, an 82-story condo rising at 1,050 feet tall, will open in 2018, and the 1,350-foot-tall condo at 111 W. 57th St. and 66-story 220 Central Park South both launch in 2016.

Also pictured is 520 Park Ave., a 54-story residential tower at E. 60th St. that may have the priciest apartment in city history. A triplex penthouse will go for $130 million in the building.

One Vanderbilt, a proposed office tower next to Grand Central Terminal, will be 1,514 tall and 65 stories. Construction is slated for 2017 and will be completed by 2021.

I love how 1 Vanderbilt completely dwarfs the Chrysler Building in that last view. It's kinda like how the nearby MetLife building completely dominates the Helmsley Building when you look down at them on Park Ave.

Went by the site yesterday. Pretty loud work, but out of view.

Perklol Nov 26, 2014 6:02 PM

One of my top 5 supertalls going up in Manhattan Island but still it looks like it could topple over due to climate change (stronger winds etc...)

/shudders

chris08876 Nov 26, 2014 6:05 PM

Thats all factored in when designing/engineering a structure (even earthquakes as well). I wouldn't worry. The PSI in this tower will be incredibly high.
