Rendering versus reality? SHoP can certainly boast that the real thing will look as good, if not better, than the drawings they’ve put out. Yesterday afternoon, JDS Development Instagrammed (h/t Curbed) an amazing shot of a scale model facade of their ultra-skinny tower going up at 111 West 57th Street. The mockup features the same materials and finishes that will be applied to the actual construction, and by any stretch of the imagination, if you multiply this beauty’s terracotta, glass, and bronze filigree to its 1,428-foot potential, it will certainly be one of the city’s most striking buildings. Who says architects don’t care about detail anymore?
