In New York, time is money, and so is square footage. As a result, hotel rooms are some of the most expensive in the country, out of the reach of many. But a number of NYC hotels have begun to pack luxury design into tiny quarters, lowering the cost and making for some beautiful rooms.

At the forefront of this small space sensation? The YOTEL, located right in the heart of NYC, and hip kids’ haven, The Jane.

Construction on the SHoP Architects-designed tower at 111 West 57th Street has finally begun! Yesterday evening, one of 6sqft’s reporters walked past the site and took a quick snap of the newly arrived construction vehicles and equipment.

The Manhattan giant, which will also be the world’s slenderest tower, will rise 1,300-feet high, above a floor plate of around 60-feet wide. The building will host three elevators and each floor will be its own 5,000-square-foot apartment with 15-foot ceilings. And for those worried how wind load will affect the 76-story structure, a huge steel weight will be suspended within the top of the building to keep it from swaying (yikes).

Manhattan is known for hosting more than a handful of the world’s most luxurious homes — many of which are perched hundreds if not thousands of feet above ground. Though few folks will ever get to see the interior of anything higher than their 5-story walk-up, we’re offering up a look into how New York’s loftiest live.

From the “smallest” to the tallest, take a peek into the penthouses of 10 of Manhattan’s supertall condos ahead. And just to give you a little more context, the Empire State Building soars 1,250 feet high.

It’s a tall, tall world
