Incredible updates. Boy, I hope they allow their tenants to freely roam around a few levels of the crown. What an amenity that would be, yet so expensive to construct for little to no rentable space.

Somehow all the new towers make One57 look better, imo. It kind of stuck out like a sore thumb at first, but with other towers it looks better in the skyline.

SHoP's Midtown supertall brings terra-cotta and bronze to new heights


By MATTHEW MARANI
June 4, 2019

Over the last two decades, SHoP Architects has pushed the envelope of facade design, leading a notable shift from predominantly glass-clad skyscrapers to supertalls incorporating a variety of materials. SHoP’s 111 57th Street is currently rising on Manhattan’s Billionaires’ Row—a stretch of dizzyingly luxurious towers. The tower stands out with a facade that incorporates three materials: terra-cotta, glass, and bronze ornamental work.
Quote:

As a result of the site’s constraints, the approximately 1,400-foot-tall tower’s width runs at a remarkably narrow 45 feet—the width-to-height ratio comes out to just 1:24. Partnering with BuroHappold Engineering, a key challenge for the project was developing a facade system capable of supporting the weight of cladding materials, notably the terra-cotta panels.

Concrete shear walls back the facade for these two elevations with only select opportunities for punched window openings. “These select openings allow for vision glass to be used while the remaining glass panels contain shadow boxes,” said BuroHappold Associate John Ivanoff. “The unitized curtain wall panels are consistent in dimension across the width of the facade; the units are separated between different materials.”

The composition of the east and west facades is formed by a trio of terra-cotta, glass, and bronze. Curtain wall–manufacturer Ellic Americas merged the three materials into approximately 4-foot-by-16-foot panels, with bronze filigree fluttering between vertical stripes of glass and terra-cotta. These panels were then delivered to the site, craned into position, and hung from concrete structural slabs similar to typical curtain wall systems.

In total, nearly 43,000 terra-cotta pieces, mechanically fastened to a unitized aluminum curtain wall system, run across the two elevations. The design of the quasi-fluted terra-cotta strips was formulated using a 3-D wave geometry generated by a computational script. This geometrically focused design by SHoP was adapted by NBK Terracotta to conform to its specific fabrication parameters.

The building is scheduled to be completed in 2020.

This is my favourite building on billionaire's row. I like how they have that classy gold on the side.

Zerton Jun 5, 2019 3:27 PM

Love the details, NYGuy.

NYguy Jun 6, 2019 2:33 AM

Yeah, this is a real special one. They put a lot of care and quality into it.


Another older but great one...

Hopefully they'll install a public mat outside this building so we all have a designated place to worship it.

:worship:

CTBUH lists this as structurally topped out. Although I thought the architectural element/crown would also be considered as part of the structure and once complete, it would be deemed structurally topped out.

Has it reached 400m?

According to http://www.ctbuh.org/criteria/:

Structurally Topped Out
The building is under construction and the highest primary structural element is in place.

Architecturally Topped Out
The building is under construction and has reached its full height both structurally and architecturally (e.g., including its spires, parapets, etc.).

Interesting NYT article about Manhattan's changing skyline. Even more telling are many of the reader comments, which are critical of the new luxury condos and their impact (or lack thereof) on the city. Now before you take a bird on these, read them with an open mind: There are always two sides to every story.

That article was posted before, but as for as the comments, it's exactly as expected, nothing telling or surprising about it at all there. Luxury will ALWAYS be a part of New York City. People will always resent that. Nothing changes.
