Developer TF Cornerstone has been working on a massive rental project at the far western end of 57th Street for a few years now—the project was approved way back in 2014—and in that time, the thoroughfare’s real estate landscape has changed pretty profoundly.
And it’s not just because of the supertall towers of Billionaires’ Row; Bjarke Ingels’s so-called “courtscraper” on 57th Street and 11th Avenue not only added a bit of architectural interest to that section of Midtown, but also changed the game in terms of apartments (spiffy, new) and amenities (plentiful, focused on outdoor space).
TF Cornerstone’s building, dubbed 606W57, may not have the imprint of a buzzy starchitect (though it is being designed by Arquitectonica, known for its Miami buildings and the, um, colorful Westin Times Square hotel), but it does have size going for it. The building is due to have a positively massive 1,028 apartments, making it one of the largest rentals in the city.
Though the building isn’t set to debut until the spring, TF Cornerstone confirmed to Curbed that pre-leasing is now underway; a new teaser site launched today, though it’s light on details (including price ranges for those rentals). What we do know: There’ll be studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, with interiors by Rockwell Group, and it’s a mix of affordable and market-rate apartments.
The building will also come with predictably robust amenities, with a screening room, fitness center (with areas for yoga, weights, and cardio), basketball court (pictured above), dog grooming center, a roof deck, and terraces on the 29th floor all part of the package.
The building, which stands 42 stories, topped out last spring.
