SHoP's Slender Midtown Supertall Finally Begins to Rise

New, 1 comment

Located at 111 West 57th Street, the tower will eventually rise to 1,428 feet

Work is moving forward on the SHoP Architects-designed supertall at 111 West 57th Street, YIMBY reports. Construction on the super slender tower is now about three stories above ground, and will rise to 1,428 feet when complete.

The 82-story building will feature 42 full-floor apartments starting on the 16th floor and upward (lower floors will have about five apartments on each floor).The adjoining Steinway Hall building will have 12 residences. Retail will occupy parts of the cellar through fourth floor, and offices are planned for the fifth floor.

Apart from that, details on the JDS and Property Markets Group collaboration remain scant. Following a slowdown in the luxury market, it was revealed this past March that sales won't launch in the building until 2017.

The project is using the tallest freestanding crane (220 feet) in NYC building history.
