111 West 57th Street Comes Into View: Supertall Emerges on Central Park Skyline
April 28, 2017
Quote:
Spring is finally here —and it’s not just the flowers and trees blooming; along the southern perimeter of Central Park, aka Billionaires’ Row, a few dramatic skyline additions have sprung up to view. First, 520 Park Avenue, 220 Central Park South, and 432 Park Avenue have reached full form, and now, the next generation of super-slender skyscrapers is beginning to inch their way above Midtown’s crowd. Extell’s Central Park Tower is beginning to peek behind 220 CPS; 53W53 is just about to crest above its commercial neighbors; and more recently, 111 West 57th Street is now visible from Central Park, shortly after surpassing the height of its complementing Steinway Building.






More INFO about the project & IMAGES HERE.

The race is now on between this and Central Park Tower! Both are beginning to rise quite quickly now. Which one do you guys think will reach 200 meters/656 first?

My guess is that steinway will overcome at some point Central Park Tower, because of the tiny floorplate.

Tiny floorplates doesn't automatically mean fast, because remember they need to make them extremely strong or the tower would tip over from the slightest breeze.

[From JDS Instagram: Golden hour at #111W57 and #SteinwayHall]


You can get a good view of this project from The Roof, a cocktail bar in the Viceroy Hotel, just across 57th Street. So if you're in the mood to spend $16-18 for a cocktail, get up there and snap some pics. I was in NYC two months ago, but didn't have time to get uptown and get some pics.
