Looks great germantower. This is another outrageously slender building. Midtown will soon be the best skyline on earth on its own, and another 200 meter building. NY is catching up to HK in that department.

And all indications suggest that this will start this summer. 1, 2.

Haha, for a second, I got scared of that huge massive building silhouette at the top of the page, I thought that was some huge terrible building project, but then I remembered it was just a massing model for 225

Looks good. Wish they would design something like it in Brooklyn or LIC.

It's an interesting design. The narrow south facade along 57th St is divided into three sections, and each of the three slope in or out at different points.

Mindboggling Reveals
Say Hello to One57's Future Super Skinny 51-Story Neighbor


Monday, September 24, 2012, by Jessica Dailey

Here's some news to spice up your Monday afternoon: Gary Barnett, the man behind One57, is developing another luxury skyscraper just down the block. Matt Chaban over at the Observer got his hands on some renderings of the new 51-story tower destined for 107 West 57th Street, and he's already aptly nicknamed it "The Shard." Cetra/Ruddy architects (archicritic Nicolai Ouroussoff is cursing somewhere) designed the super-skinny tower, which will reach 697 feet high on its 43-foot wide lot. The angular, swooping structure departs greatly from Cetra/Ruddy's other well-known skinny tower, the boxy One Madison Park.

Building permits show 28 units, with no more than one apartment per floor. There are 14 duplexes located on floors 20 to 46, and 13 full-floor units on floors 7 through 19. A quadraplex will occupy the top of the building, but the tippy-top 51st floor is reserved for "recreational space." Floors 1 to 3 will have 10,000-square-feet of retail, and the other floors will host amenities for residents. The rear of the building faces Central Park, and terraces jut from the building as it slopes upward.

One more rendering and more details after the jump >>

JDS Properties purchased a majority stake in the currently empty site from Starwood Capital in May, and the permits for the 51-story tower were filed back in March. JDS declined to talk to NYO about the building, so who knows when it could come to fruition. But when it does, will we see yet another $95 million listing?

Just How Many Skinny Luxury Towers Can We Jam Onto 57th Street? Well, Here’s Another 51-Story Doozy
By Matt Chaban 2:39pm

Hello, Central Park.

The new look of Midtown.
Forget Park Avenue, forget Central Park West, forget Bond Street. Pretty soon, 57th Street is going to be the place to live in New York.

Already we have the uber-hyped One57, where billionaires buy condos pushing $100 million. The taller-than-1WTC 432 Park is just beginning to rise a few blocks away, with the recent revelations its penthouse will be asking $85 million. And at some point in time, Gary Barnett, the man responsible for One57, will begin work on another luxury tower on the corner of Broadway and 57th Street.

As if that were not enough, here comes a 51-story bolt of luxury to the heart of Manhattan.
Back in May, Starwood Capital announced it had sold a majority stake to JDS Development for a site it had long controlled at 107 West 57th Street—on the same block as One57. According to a March building permit on file with the city, the tower will reach 697 feet, about two-thirds the size of One57 but 140-feet taller than the landmark Essex House on Central Park South.

The project is designed by Cetra/Ruddy architects, who may be best known for another slender condo tower, the blocky One Madison, which overlooks the park of the same name. Renderings of the firm’s 57th Street project have been making the rounds among developers and brokers in the city, which is how they made their way into our rendering-loving hands. They show a more angular structure, with swooping, faceted edges not unlike the nearby LVMH headquarters. As the building slopes away from 58th Street, terraces jut from the face—providing full views of the park, of course.


The building site, just off Sixth Avenue.
The building is narrow, located on a 43-foot wide lot, about the size of two row houses. This creates for quite the exclusive building, as there is no more than one apartment per floor, according to the building permits. In fact, there are more duplexes (14) than simplexes (13). The latter are located on floors 7 through 19 while floors 20 through 46 contain the former. The top of the building is dedicated to a quadraplex that will no doubt challenge its neighbors on the block for price supremacy.

The 51st and final floor is listed as “recreational space.” Forget Top of the Rock. How about Top of the Shard.

As for the rest of the building, it contains retail on the first, second and third floors, nearly 10,000-square feet of it. There is also recreational space on the second and sixth floors, where amenities for residents, like lounges, common outdoor space and workout rooms will presumably be located.

A spokesman for JDS, which is best known for its work on the Walker Tower in Chelsea, declined to comment. There, too, the firm is creating some striking apartments with commanding views of the surrounding landscape. Perhaps next they can build something crazy down on the Battery. Wouldn’t it be great if they revived Santiago Calatrava’s plans for a stack of Seaport cubes? Certainly would seem to fit the portfolio.

One 57 looks strange in that rendering. This one will be interesting

Great catch RW, shared on SSP. The fact that these renderings come from brokers who were given them by the developer seems to indicate that this tower could get built sooner rather than later. Edit, plus there's an active building permit, so this could get going pretty soon, but we'll have to wait and see.

Thanks, Yankeesfan. This tower will rise very quickly considering how narrow it is.

The developer of the site, JDS, also has assembled a much larger site on Madison and 32nd St. I hope that it goes with a cool design there too.

I assume 671ft as it says?

But I agree that the design is wonderful. I love all this skinny glass towers rising in Midtown. Wish this would have been atleast 200 feet taller
