Without even reaching its final height of 1,428 feet tall, SHoP Architect’s Midtown supertall is already boasting amazing views. New photos released this week of 111 West 57th Street, which recently surpassed 1,000 feet high, show off 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 the skinniest skyscraper in the world.

The 86-story tower features an intricate facade of terracotta and bronze, used to evoke the feeling of old-world buildings. The color also complements the design of the pre-war Steinway Hall building, which is being incorporated into the new tower.
As 6sqft learned last month, initial listings at the building went live for its 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.

There is another penthouse apartment 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.
Developers JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners expect the building to top out early next year.
