The information that you posted from that link is not accurate.

Mirror, mirror... who is the slenderest of them all?

111 W. 57TH ST.



March 11, 2014 6:30PM-8:00PM

At Edmond J. Safra Hall, Museum of Jewish Heritage
36 Battery Place, across the street from The Skyscraper Museum.

Speakers:
Vishaan Chakrabarti, Principal, SHoP Architects
Gregg Pasquarelli, Principal, SHoP Architects
Chris Sharples, Principal, SHoP Architects
Silvian Marcus, Principal in Charge, WSP Group

Panel discussion, moderated by Carol Willis, Director of the Skyscraper Museum:
SHoP Architects, WSP Group, and developer Michael Stern, Managing Partner, JDS Development Group


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.

This program is FREE to members of The Skyscraper Museum
Non-members, $10; Students & Seniors, $5.

Setting that world record will make this building even more of an icon. I consider myself very lucky to be alive to watch such a crazy time for the New York skyline. When people mention things like ESB, the Chrysler building etc they will also be mentioning 111 w57, although it might need a catchier name, idk.

1,350+ tower eh?

I couldn't imagine something so thin going past 1,350 feet... even anywhere close to that this thing looks like a toothpick, but it's a great building regardless, can't wait to see it in real life

I think steinway tower is pretty catchy.

You're right, I completely forgot that was its name. I always just think of it as 111 w57.

One57 was at one time Carnegie57. In time 111 W. 57th may come up with a more marketable name, or it may remain just what it is. It is being incorporated into Steinway Hall, so that may play a part in whatever the building is called.

The Steinway Tower: Short, sweet and to the point.

It sounds like a classy name fitting of a classy tower.

They'll end up following suit and calling this "one11."

Camstonisland Mar 11, 2014 3:37 PM

well, steinway tower is much better than my idea of a name. because of how the tower is so slender and has setbacks, i was thinking of 'the fagot' because it looks like a bundle of lolly sticks, each shorter than the next. Yeah, I prefer Steinway...

Steinway is a very fitting name, but at the same time I feel this deserves an original name. I won't be surprised when the news networks come up with corny names like "the staircase"

too obvious?

I wish one of these posts was to inform us work has started on the site. Want this tower to get started!

gttx Mar 12, 2014 1:21 AM

The talk tonight at the skyscraper museum was really interesting. Some incredible new renderings, especially of the crown and the facade.

It was mentioned in passing that the tower was "right at about 1400 feet."

Unfortunately my phone died (of course), but the talk will be posted on the museum's website within the week. Maybe someone else grabbed some pictures.
