The world’s skinniest tower at 111 West 57th Street in Manhattan, New York City has released a new rendering and teaser site showing how the SHoP Architects-designed building stacks up against other supertalls around the world. Slated for completion in early-2018, the skyscraper will be serviced by three high-speed elevators to each of its 45 luxury apartments, complete with 360-degree views and panorama of Central Park.
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.
