Just nuts. The CHEAPEST one can be had for a simple $4720/sqft.

What a nice 3 bedroom in Manhattan would go for rent per month would pretty much buy you 1 sq ft in the cheapest and smallest unit.

Even if you wanted to keep a prisoner in a 6x6 cell or 36 sqft somewhere in that unit, I'd still cost you 169k.

^ Plus condo association fees.

Skyguy_7 Sep 14, 2018 7:19 PM

^ ^^ LOL definitely not worth keeping a prisoner. $169K and it doesn't even come with a creepy windowless basement.

46 total units. Unbelievable.

As spectacular as this building is, I would opt for the $20 million dollar penthouse in the adjacent Steinway building, so I could sit on my terrace and stare straight up at the glorious terra cotta. And I would of course make friends with a duplex owner so I could crash at his 75th floor pad for free.

I'd clean the toilets with a toothbrush and personally manicure the owners toes if I could get access to the penthouse. If he wants me to do it while wearing a diaper... I'll do it!

Maybe after this debauchery, we'd somehow become friends, and the mogul would invite me to join his company, and later, I'd make enough to live here. Off the backs of millions, but one does not simply become a mogul without pain and suffering.

If I could just get my hand on maybe a 5 ft model of this...

A New Tower Rises Above Billionaires’ Row
After years of delays and lawsuits, a condo on the site of the old Steinway Hall is ready to start sales.

The 60-unit tower, which overlooks Central Park near Avenue of the Americas, has certainly tried to stand out in a crowd. At 1,428 feet (or 86 stories), 111 West 57th will be one of New York’s tallest buildings when it’s completed in 2019. By contrast, the office tower One World Trade Center, the city’s loftiest spire, is 1,776 feet, while 432 Park Avenue, a new condo tower nearby, measures 1,396 feet, and One57, at 157 West 57th Street, is 1,004 feet.

Taller residences, however, are under construction, including Central Park Tower, a condo at 217 West 57th, which is to be 1,550 feet.

Height aside, 111 West 57th has tried to set itself apart stylistically. Rejecting the crystalline look so popular with new developments in the neighborhood, the condo offers an exterior detailed with terra cotta and bronze, in a nod to more traditional materials. Inside the tower, which rises adjacent to the prewar building that housed Steinway Hall for 90 years, and whose gradually tapered body recalls a clothespin, are 46 of the condo’s 60 units; most take up a full floor, while seven units are duplexes. The most common layout has three bedrooms and three and a half baths.

The remaining 14 units, including some studios, are inside the old Steinway facility. The Steinway showroom and store, where Rachmaninoff once practiced, closed and moved south to West 43rd and Avenue of the Americas (the former home of the International Center for Photography) in 2014. Designed in the 1920s by the firm Warren and Wetmore, of Grand Central Terminal fame, the limestone building has landmark status, both inside and out.

“The juxtaposition of the old and new is really what this building is all about,” said Mr. Stern during a recent tour of the condo, whose exterior is by SHoP Architects and whose interiors are by Studio Sofield. From the 61st floor, blankets in Central Park’s Sheep Meadow resembled bits of confetti.

Though “Steinway Tower” was for years a name associated with the project, the developers ultimately jettisoned it for trademark reasons, Mr. Stern said.

Studios, which are reserved for buyers of larger units, start at $1.6 million, while the priciest apartment is a duplex penthouse with more than 7,000 square feet, for $57 million; average asking prices are $6,500 a square foot, developers said.

Enlarged a bit...

For the model, did they overlook or not bother with the illumination for the terra-cotta and the lattice crown?

Cypherus Sep 16, 2018 10:50 PM

This tower almost looks illegal. So amazing.

Design-mind Sep 16, 2018 11:39 PM

I love this photograph as it really shows how small the floor plate is, and it is still going to get a lot smaller as they rise.

Skyguy_7 Sep 17, 2018 12:26 PM

The duplexes will feel not much different than a Chicago 2-flat, except 1,000 feet in the air.

Look at the "core" of this building. Really took some imagination. Unlike anything on earth!

Yes, that's what they were going for.

I would add "impossible" given her dimensions.

That bldg model is gorgeous. They should donate it to the Skyscraper Museum eventually.

NYguy Sep 21, 2018 4:06 AM

^ That would be nice. The skyscraper museum should have some supersized exhibits. Not sure if they have the space for it in the current location.




Two towers beginning to show their dominance...

You guys would like the new Chicago Architecture Center at Michigan and Wacker. It has massive scale models, including one of the Kingdom Tower, which reaches two floors high in the lobby. No SHoP models though, due to no Chicago connection :(

^
How does the Kingdom Tower have a Chicago connection or the CMG Tower in Beijing?
