Either that or they don't want to freak out potential buyers!

Here's a zoom of that render showing the metal trim on the south side:




Here's some dancers on top of the brand new Steinway building, 1925:


From Aug. 10, 1925, on the top of “the new Steinway building” on 57th St., the famed Vienna-born Albertina Rasch rehearsed with members of her ballet. The old Steinway Hall had been on 14th St. since 1866. Photo: The New York Times (via)

Looks like the Heckscher (later the Crown Building) in the background.


Here's the interior of the original Steinway Hall (opened in 1866), before they built the current building. It was a beautiful concert hall:

I was thinking this... Looks like something I would do on Microsoft Paint in 5 minutes
Is that an actual magazine? Or someone taking the piss?

Also is there any chance that this building called be called Steinway Tower or something of the sort? Has a great ring to it

The proportions aren't right, but as I edited above, I think it's because they aren't showing the bottom of the building in that image (probably 200 feet or so of the base).

Yes it is this old render squashed a bit. My point was it shows random buildings from wildly different perspectives.

What are the dimensions of the tower? I always had the impression it was 45' x 60'

I don't think that would be possible, maybe up near the very top but I think the 60' figure is east to west where the tower is narrowest, and north to south it tapers on the south side from much wider than that to thinner at the top eventually.

Can't wait to see this rise. The thinnest tower in the world and one of the most elegant!

The base of the tower is 58.75' wide (east-west) x 79.25' deep (north-south).


Here is an unusual view of the Steinway building, seen from Hampshire House (150 Central Park South). You can see that the aerial photos can be a bit deceiving, as there are two levels below the main roof, descending toward 58th Street.

Ohh ok it all makes sense now.I understand now how it will be placed with the steinway tower facade. I knew the numbers I gave seem a little too slender of a tower ...Thanks for all the info!

Not only the design makes this iconic but the height and width making this tower the skinniest tower in the world will make this a certified instant classic in NYC's skyline.

How would this tower look like standing in front of the ESB?? It's not accurate but I used my best estimating skillz! lol.

Original Photo by Jayanth Kommidi @ 500px and I just added the Steinway in front of it.

Oh, and it's in the wrong place, and the wrong glass colour compared to the sky, the reflections are off, and the bottom of the tower is cut. Way too pixely as well. Slightly wrong height compared to the ESB.

Probably the most interesting new design in years...

Actually I thought the height was my best guestimation! ESB to the tip stands at 1454’ and the antenna Is about 200’ tall. The Steinway will rise to 1,350’ so I made the top of the Steinway about half the height of the ESB spire.

Very nice, VG... it's a great comparison and what sticks out is just how lean Steinway will be... my goodness it's such a skinny thing! I do think though that leaner towers like this and 432 Park really do add to the overall impact of the skyline with the contrast to the more massive towers like ESB.

It's standing right on 34th St, nothing wrong there. Also, they started to demolish 1 and 4WTC.
