Last week, 6sqft brought you an up close and personal look at 111 West 57th Street’s exterior facade mock-up, and now Property Markets Group (PMG), who is co-developing the super-tower with JDS Development Group, posted a nifty interactive panorama of the building’s out-of-this-world views.
Rising from the heart of Billionaires’ Row (New York’s very own Mount Olympus and preferred residence of our anonymous overlords), the building is 80 stories and 1,438 feet high and is nearly perfectly on axis to Central Park–an egotistical perk that Extell’s Central Park Tower and Macklowe/CIM Group’s 432 Park aren’t granted despite having higher apartments.
The panorama and aerial photography was produced by SkyPan International. Users can window shop 360-degree views from the tower at 75-foot intervals down to 245 feet in height. The tower will host just 60 full-floor homes, many of which will be duplexes that will provide tractor-trailer-clearing ceiling heights. Prices will start at $16 million and the approved offering plan projects a total sellout of $1.45 billion. Excavation is well underway at the oh-so-narrow lot, and completion is expected some time in 2018.
Below are a few captures from the tower’s uppermost levels, which are roughly 1,150 feet above the city–some 200 feet higher than the highest units at nearby Billionaires’ Row king One57. All five boroughs can be seen from the perch, along with what seems every major Manhattan landmark. Homes in this rarefied air are expected to sell for more than $100 million.
Looking down on Gary Barnett’s One57. Barnett is constructing the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere (to the roof) nearby. The domed CitySpire and the angled Metropolitan Tower once held the highest apartments in the city and their height outraged locals when built in the 1980s.
While 432 Park Avenue provides a handful of apartments higher than 111 West 57th Street, 111 is taller due to a 200-foot crown that SHoP Architects’ partner Gregg Pasquarelli says is basically a glass and bronze sculpture
