I am so happy they kept the steinway building, I wish they did the same to 29W 57th street too.

Picture update!

Photos taken yesterday by 600West218!









I can't believe how quickly this is coming along! And the speed is bound to pick up because of how small the actually floor size is! So excited!!

Now we need to wait until the tower portion rises above the roof of tha trium, or you guys do updates from sixth avenue. We had updates in which you could see the tower portion rising inbetween the buildings on sixth.

I still can´t believe such a slender tower will rise to heights above 432, and that this one will only have half the width of 432. Amazing.

From an Art déco point of view, that tower really look like a representation of the inside of a Steinway piano. It is a marvel of art, I think.

Wait, what is the scaffolding behind the steinway hall, is it the tower already rising or is it just part of the restoration of the original building?

Can't be from the tower yet, so probably for the old building.

I took a stab at drawing the floor plan for this amazing tower for an upcoming presentation. I based it on the floor plan released to the public some time ago. I have, however, found a photograph of a plan print that suggests there may have been some changes since the public release - specially pertaining to the two columns on the south side of the building.


My Floor Plan:

I anybody has access to a legitimate copy of the actual drawings, I would greatly appreciate it if you share it with me to confirm which is the actual plan

The last floorplan shown is one of the higher floors, the southern columns are out of the plan now because the setbacks.

Also, from the last photo update by Ghostface, we can see the rebar of the left southern column in the top center portion of the photo.

This tower is, in many ways, art deco, but it also has many elements of art nouveau, especially the sides of the building. Those two styles make a great combination.

Good spot, that sounds right. I wonder at what point the units change over from single floor units to duplex (and unless the plans have changed, triplexes/fourplexes). The uppermost floorplates are going to be very small, so you're necessarily going to need to spread the square footage over several floors to have a truly large luxury apartment.

The New York Times had an article back in June focused on apartments above 800 feet.

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2...k-introduction


Looks like this tower will have 12 units with a floor height above that level. The top apartment is spread over 4 floors, there are 4 2-floor apartments below that, and then the 7 single-floor units.




This is subject to change, of course, based on the market realities when the condos are offered for sale.

I have studied this tower over the day yesterday and I have to say, I am even more impressed now that such a building is possible. It´s basically a skyscraper core of 438m, with a small crown on top, cladded and used for residential units. I like how carefully the glass fins on top tranfer art deco into modern age time, you could call this tower neo art deco. The side elements are genius, esoecially those stone panels look like something used from a cathedral. I like the idea of the windbreaks, very futuristic and very art deco too. It is an element of modernism to me, an element that makes this building possible. I wonder what people who thought the Faltiron will collapse, would think of this one. It will be a striking landmark anchoring central park south.

OT: What is going on with the development between this and One57? The church site project by Extell if I am not mistaken, any info on that one?

I am not sure that is the case since even at the higher floors (above the setbacks) the slab would still have to be supported on the south edge of the building. I found a technical paper published by the CTBUH where the author mentions that the south columns were overall abandoned in favor of a concrete beam spanning between the east and west walls:

"As a result of the reduced floor plate, the structural system is formed by just two exterior walls located at the east an west facade connected to the side core in the shape of an 'H' with two connectors. At the south end, in order to maximize the space, two vertical columns were eliminated and a 6-foot wide beam was introduced."

Think of it as a giant H beam with some living quarters.

Fun fact: The 800 ton tuned-mass damper is heavier than the 713 ton damper in the Taipei 101.
