We might actually see four go up at the same time - 225W 57th, TV, 111W 57th and 220 CPS. There is another site assemblage on 57th rumored to be another super tall residential project, but the four aforementioned projects are much further underway.

I concur.
I took count, this is the fourth supertall to get the green light this year along with Tower Verre, HY North Tower and 3WTC along with those already rising. Not to mention the already very exciting projects around the city: 56 Leonard, the Pyramid, Calatrava's PATH station, Zaha's building on the west side, the whole HUdson Yard.... I could go on and on but bottom line, this is indeed the most exciting time in the city's architectural landscape in quite some time; probably unrivaled in the western world. Insane!

And up we go...

Michael Stern’s JDS Development and Kevin Maloney’s Property Markets Group have begun construction at the ultra skinny 1,350-foot hotel and condominium tower in Midtown, slated to be the city’s tallest residential tower if all goes as planned.

The 60-foot-wide SHoP Architects-designed structure, slated to rise at 111 West 57th Street (previously reported as 107 West 57th Street), will stand 100 feet taller than the Empire State Building and is partially situated on a landmarked site.
Excavation began this week, the New York Post reported.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the design back in October of last year. The planned tower would be covered with bronze-and-white terra-cotta stripes, as The Real Deal previously reported.
JDS and Property Markets bought the parcel, along with the land lease, 45,000 square feet of air rights and a neighboring property for $131.5 million in March of 2013.

At a third project that’s got a much longer way to go, excavation proceeds apace on 111 W. 57th St.
That’s the super-slender, 1,350-footer previously identified in roughly 300 articles — inaccurately, its spokespersons say — as 107 W. 57th St.

The gently rippling tower designed by SHoP Architects has also been misrepresented in nearly every instance as a JDS project.
It is in fact a joint venture of Kevin Maloney’s Property Markets Group (PMG) and Michael Stern’s JDS Development Group, the same successful partnership behind the record-setting Walker Tower condo conversion.

In a sign that things are about to kick into high gear, PMG just moved a team into the adjacent 17-story Steinway building, the recently designated landmark, that will be incorporated into the project as part of its retail component. Steinway will line up at sidewalk level with a new glass at the tower’s base.

Excavation has not begun here. It's ironic that Cuozzo would talk about inaccuracies in the same article where he makes false claims.

Blaze23 Feb 25, 2014 11:30 PM

Please do tell, which false claims?

He said excavation was well underway... it has not started.

Have you been there this week? I have no idea if the article is accurate, but Cuozzo states that excavation began this week.

^ Yea, because the Post is known for their journalistic integrity.

I walked by the site this afternoon and there was no equipment to be seen. I'm sure excavation is about to begin, but Cuozzo was wrong.

ILNY Feb 26, 2014 2:49 AM

Excavation or demolition? There is not really much to excavate and I thought parts of Steinway and adjacent structures need to be demolish first.

Aha, thanks; why am I not surprised the NYPost got the details wrong...

It's strange how something so beautiful and elegant will start to rise out of something so ugly.^

The total square footage of 432 Park is 545K

Are you telling me that it would take 4.5 432 parks to equal the square footage of the Empire State Building when it's roof height is going to be 150ft higher that the ESB? That's just crazy.

The ESB is huge. Even if it was only 900ft, it would still take up more space.

Among the extraordinary new crop of New York's super-slim, ultra-luxury residential towers surveyed in The Skyscraper Museum's exhibition SKY HIGH & the logic of luxury, the most slender of all is the 111 W. 57th St., designed by SHoP Architects, with structural engineering by WSP Group for JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group.

With a ratio of the width of the base to height of 1:23, the 1,350+ ft tower will be the most slender building in the world.

SHoP's design harkens back to the quality, materiality, and emphatic verticality of historic NYC skyscrapers, while utilizing advanced engineering and technology to craft a contemporary contribution to the skyline. The tower's silhouette rises in an elegant series of feathered setbacks, while the façade reads at multiple scales and vantage points. An intricate pattern of shaped terracotta panels and bronze latticework on the east and west façades creates a sweeping play of light and shadow, while a glass curtain wall on the north and south façades provide sweeping views of Central Park and Midtown.

SHoP Architects was founded in 1996 on a premise of proving that intelligent and evocative architecture can be made in the real world, with real world constraints, and has made a name for itself by pioneering the use of innovative technologies to produce both iconic architectural forms and a new model for the profession.

WSP is one of the world's leading professional services firms. Its New York-based structural engineer, the WSP Group (formerly Cantor Seinuk) are the designers of the structural systems for a majority of the city's super-slender towers now under construction.

I don't think that this tower will be the most slender tower in the world, if the width of the 432 Park Avenue is 50 FT : http://www.bdcnetwork.com/7-towers-d...boom-slideshow

111 W.57 is quite obviously skinnier than 432 Park.

The width of 432 Park is 94 ft.
