The skyscraper rising above the landmarked Steinway Hall building in Midtown recently surpassed the supertall mark and now stands over 1,000 feet tall. The building still has over 400 feet to go, but this latest construction milestone is accompanied by photos of the breathtaking views from some of the highest floors of the building. The photos below show off views of both Central Park and the the Midtown skyline from floors 64, 72, and 73.
Eventually, this condo tower will soar to 1,428 feet, making it one of the tallest skyscrapers in New York City. Even at that imposing height, the building will only have 46 apartments. This is because all the units will be either full-floor residences or duplexes. Sales on these condos finally launched in September, with apartments starting at $18 million and going up to $57 million.
The design team at 111 West 57th Street comprises SHoP Architects and Studio Sofield, and the project is being developed by JDS, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners. The supertall is expected to top out early next year, and construction is scheduled to wrap by the end of 2019.
