111 West 57th Street defines the idea of a modern classic: a residence whose timeless design evokes the prewar Golden Age of Manhattan skyscrapers, while also delivering high-technology performance, 21st century engineering, and contemporary comfort without compromise.” This is the text from 111 West 57th Street‘s new teaser site. The webpage for the will-be world’s skinniest tower is accompanied by a new rendering, which makes the SHoP-designed supertall appear even more dominant in the skyline than previously envisioned and tacks an additional seven feet onto its height, bringing it to 1,428 feet.

Though 432 Park Avenue is currently NYC’s tallest residential building at 1,396 feet, 111 West 57th Street will surpass it at 1,428 feet making it one of the tallest in the hemisphere. The rendering and height comparison, however, don’t mention the nearby Nordstrom Tower, which will be even taller at 1,775 feet. There will be just 60 units in the 57th Street supertall: 46 in the SHoP-designed tower and 14 in the landmarked Steinway Hall building. According to the new site, prices will start at $14 million. The priciest homes will climb to $100 million. Keep up to date on 111 West 57th Street’s progress here.
