Well, you might want to think twice. Even though the city’s most expensive condo building is also perhaps the most written-about (even the Times has run out of ways to describe it), there are still plenty of little-known facts about the 1,005-foot-tall tower.
One57 is considered the crown jewel of what’s been dubbed “Billionaire’s Row,” and can also be credited with launching the ultra-luxury building boom. Developed by Extell‘s Gary Barnett and designed by Pritzker-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc, the sleek tower is currently the second tallest structure in the city. And that’s just the beginning.
