Even before reaching its final height of 1,428 feet tall, SHoP Architect’s Midtown supertall 111 West 57th Street, which surpassed 1,000 feet a few months ago, wowed us with views from the tower’s 64th, 72nd, and 73rd floors. Upon completion, the Billionaires’ Row tower will become the tallest residential building in the world, taking the title from 1,396-foot 432 Park Avenue, (until 1,500-foot Central Park Tower tops out). With a super slender frame (a ratio of 1:24), 111 West 57th Street is also set to become one of the skinniest skyscraper in the world. The new year brings new progress–and new photos showing the 86-story tower’s intricate terra cotta and bronze facade making its way skyward.

The facade colors–used to evoke the feeling of old-world buildings–also complement the design of the pre-war Steinway Hall building, which is being incorporated into the new tower. Developers JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners expect the building to top out this year.

Initial listings at the building went live in 2018 for the building’s 46 units. The first group of condos available range from $18 million to $30 million, with a $57 million penthouse. The penthouse will be on floor 72 and feature four bedrooms, five baths, and measure a generous 7,128 square feet.

An additional penthouse apartment is located within the historic Steinway Hall building, called the Landmark Residences Penthouse. With 5,000-square-foot interiors and nearly 4,000 square feet of private terraces, the apartment is asking $20.5 million. Other Landmark Residences, with closings starting next year, will be reserved for buyers of Tower Residences, which will begin closings in the first quarter of 2020.
