I went by about a week ago in a taxi and not much seemed to be going on, but this will be financed quickly and will rise quickly.

Love the design. The skyline view from Central Park is going to be really amazing soon. Hopefully they can start on this one this year.

Tapering Heights

Another tall, skinny residential tower to pierce the sky in Midtown Manhattan.



The currently empty lot at 107 West 57th Street will soon be home to one of the city’s narrowest tall buildings. Slated for completion in 2014, a mixed-use tower will rise 688 feet in the air from the modest 43-foot-wide by 100-foot-deep site. Developed by JDS Development Group and designed by local architecture firm Cetra Ruddy, the 51-story residential high rise with retail on the first four floors will fit into Midtown’s zoning envelope, its south face stepping and tapering back from the street as it ascends. The firm also designed One Madison Park, the slim tower of stacked cubes on 23rd Street.



“We wanted to create something that would carry its own weight among the Midtown towers, of which there are many,” said John Cetra, a founding partner of Cetra Rudy. In addition to the building’s slender, shard-like character, the architects have given it an active skin treatment that will catch eyes whether up close or from a distance. While the north and south facades will feature floor-to-ceiling transparent glass curtain walls, the lot-line walls, which contain the tower’s reinforced concrete structure, will be clad with dark grey stainless steel panels. The panels are rippled and perforated with a semi-random pattern of holes, which, at night, will reveal a kinetic display of light from thousands of concealed LEDs. “We’re not just exposing a wall of concrete,” continued Cetra. “It’s going to have quite a personality in and of itself. Whatever direction you see it from, it will sparkle with light.”

Containing a total of 105,000 square feet, 107 West 57th Street will have no more than one apartment per floor, including 13 full-floor units, 14 duplexes, and a four-story penthouse. Two elevators housed in a core of concrete shear walls will provide vertical circulation. A tuned-mass damper in the upper mechanical floors will help to reduce building sway and provide a stable environment for residents.

Totally awesome. I love good architecture, especially when It's influenced by surroundings - in this case by very thin site
And It will conversate greatly with 432 and One57.

Steel cladding (such as on Gehry's tower) proved to be one of the best materials nowadays - It'll be awesome, I tell you.

The renders are a bit flashy so hard to tell, but this can become a marvelous tower!

Another tall and very slender tower. The cladding looks a bit chaotic to me, but it looks pretty cool.

Battling skyscrapers on 57th Street



In the wake of One57, developers are working on a slew of residential projects in Manhattan’s newest hotbed of development
February 01, 2013
By Yasmeen Qureshi



"...West 57th Street
This slender new condo tower is being developed by JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group, the team behind well-received condo conversion Walker Tower. Located on a vacant lot on 57th Street just west of Sixth Avenue, the 700-foot-tall, 52-story building will have around 30 units, Stern said, many of them duplexes. Plans call for roughly 10,000 square feet of retail on the first and second floors. Construction is slated to begin this quarter and be completed in 2014..."

I would guess closer to two years in reality.

Yeah me to, but still if they want to have it finished by december 2014 it must be t/o in one and a half year. I don't know how the site looks right now but that is quite impressive, even with it's very small floors.

This is going to be a crazy project to watch. The lot is listed as 43 feet wide, but looks even narrower. They're going to build a 697-foot tall building here, and next to the landmarked building on the left to boot (Steinway Hall).
