How a glass cube can be "atrocious"!??...I can't get it!...I saw it in person:striking!
I mean, sure it's similar in principle, but in execution I think it's completely different. The Apple Store is transparent whereas the retail cube at 432 is like... frosted green bathroom glass. It's an opaque mass that doesn't seem to have much relation to any of its neighbors, or even the tower itself.

By contrast, the glassy component of Steinway projects to be far and away the best of these precisely because it's basically invisible -- it lets the surrounding buildings do the talking, much like the Apple Store does.

LOL with what square footage? They can barely get an apartment up there. Most of the top third of the building is parapet. The entire footprint is like the size of two standard strip mall tenants.

Park Avenue isn't West 57th, and 520 Park Avenue is right in line with its lineage. It's at home with the Carpenter and Candela buildings it draws from, its not trying to be The Waldorf Astoria. Stern knows what he's doing and he knows that having a single private door creates 'drama' and 'intrigue.' It's the same principle behind the old stuffy Ivy League clubs in midtown. Everything about that building is meant to say "residence for rich people," which is precisely what The Zeckendorfs want. A mansion tower. 111 W 57th is a stunner, but it and the others communicate something different (maybe something better, not sure, but definitely different).

On a side note, this is the new Steinway Hall, that replaced the one that used to be on this site, now located one block away from Times Square at 43rd Street and Avenue of the Americas. More modern, obviously not as cool.

The interior is wow. I kinda like the colors and shade of accented edges of the seats.

Annabelle Selldorf did the new design. She's probably one of the most admired and respected architects working in New York City (and is really a project or so away from being the next starchitect). She is quite good

I have a question? What will happen with the windows on the left building as the tower will rise?

Effectively nothing -- they're going to be preserved along with the rest of Steinway Hall:

This is a view around the corner of the view we are used to. We usually see it from W57th Street. This view is around the corner at 6th Ave. The brick building at the left is on the corner of 57th St. and 6th Ave. and it is the same building that is at the right side when wee see the construction site from W57th St.

We can see the formwork of the lateral shear walls peeking above the Lloyds Intl' Gallery Building.

Thank you for that explanation!

And Streetscapeer, thank you for posting this very interesting view!

So I guess they will cut out some more windows on the neighbouring building? There are only two rows visible in the construction instead of the three on the render.
