Finally, See Inside BIG's Striking 57th Street Tetrahedron

New, 10 comments


It's been nearly two months since Bjarke Ingels Group's 57th Street tetrahedron topped out, but pictures from its insides have yet to make their rounds. No longer: Field Condition got into the Durst Organization-developed building o' rentals, and its interiors are shaping up to be just as exciting as its exterior geometry. Field Condition explains that the tetrahedron—which seems to be going by the name W57—will have a central courtyard, typical to structures from BIG's native Denmark, that is inspired by and is of the same proportion as Central Park. To the north of the courtyard, the tower peaks at 460 feet, and the southern tower slopes to create the building's characteristic shape. Herringbone-patterned terraces will allow each apartment in the building's north tower to have views of the Hudson River.
When complete, the building will have 709 rentals and 45,000-square-feet of commercial space. Building amenities will include a basketball court, pool, gym, cinema room and golf simulator. Although pricing for the tower have yet to be unveiled, rents will probably be really expensive.
