They're both mixed use I believe, but One57 had over 100 residential apartments including the the most expensive pent-house in New York. But you're right, they don't have balconies, at least as far as one can see.

One57 penthause will have nice terrace on one of the floors, and beekman could have balconies without taking much from the design. The same goes for other towers like 432 park avenue. Anyways, balcony is rather lame argument to make ugly kitschy towers as you can see on the pictures I posted. Even dubai has some nice towers with balconies like the infinity.

What you mean by jump, that it might be missing and not more on top? It is still there.
