The Manhattan tower and landmark, reinvented. 111 West 57th Street represents commitment to the quality of craft, history, and thinking behind New York City’s classic skyscrapers.

The development will be a combination of the original landmarked Steinway building designed in 1925 by Warren & Wetmore, and a new residential tower addition designed by SHoP Architects on the adjacent site with interior design by Studio Sofield.

The tower’s form multiplies the set-back to present a feathered, rather than a stepped profile. The terracotta facades and bronze filigree aim to bring back the quality, materiality and details of historic New York towers, while taking advantage of the latest technology to push the limits of engineering and fabrication.

The project will feature full floor and duplex apartments with 360-degree views and unparalleled views of Central Park.

Topping out at over 1,400 feet, when completed it will be among the tallest towers in the city and the most slender skyscraper in the world.

The north side of the tower rises directly up to the pinnacle of the building. On the south side of the tower, a series of setbacks appear as the tower rises. As the height of the building increases, the setbacks eventually thin out, with the tower “disappearing into the sky.”
