Construction for 111 West 57th Street, consisting of two adjacent structures including the historic Steinway Hall, once home to the Steinway & Sons piano company, and a new 1,428-foot tower designed by SHoP Architects has officially been completed. Heralding the completion of monumental residential development, the interior architecture, designed by Studio Sofield, has now been fully unveiled by JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group for the very first time.
Located on Billionaires’ Row in Midtown Manhattan, the new 111 West 57th tower is recognized as both the skinniest skyscraper in the world and the second-tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere. The 91-story building looks to redefine the Manhattan skyline with its bold yet slender feather-like silhouette featuring an impressive 24:1 height-to-width ratio.
Originally constructed in 1925 by Warren & Wetmore, the design firm behind other NYC landmarks such as Grand Central Terminal, Steinway Hall has been completely reimagined with light-filled residences and amenity spaces that maintain the spirit of the original building. As part of the development, the neoclassical building’s ornate historic rotunda and Indiana limestone façade were painstakingly restored in collaboration with the Landmarks Preservation Commission of New York. Using terra-cotta extensively across the exteriors, 111 West 57th Street looks to evoke the iconic forms of the golden age of the Manhattan skyscraper. The glazed panels clad the building with 22 sets of contours with bronze filigree providing extra richness up close.
“111 West 57th is a skyscraper designed for the future while being historically rooted in New York City in the timelessness of its refined detail and robust form,” said Dana Getman, Principal, SHoP Architects. “The building was conceived of and shaped through light and shadow, as seen in its feathered setbacks and the sun’s reflection in the glazed terracotta curves and textured bronze detailing. Its design is completely unique on the skyline yet immediately recognizable as a part of the city.”
60 total residences are available within 111 West 57th Street — 14 in Steinway Hall, and 46 full-floor and duplex residences within the tower. Interiors honor the spirit of the original Warren and Wetmore designs to create monumental lobbies and residential interiors with a stunning collection of amenities including the installation of remarkable works of art and antiquities, a modern take on the legendary King Cole Bar, 82-foot swimming pool, numerous in-house services, expansive landscaped terrace, padel court, and more.
