Midtown Condo, Brooklyn ‘Lab’
By MICHELLE HIGGINS
FEB. 20, 2015





Quote:
In an industrial section of Sunset Park, Brooklyn, where the street ends at the waterfront, an unassuming door opens to a cold and cavernous warehouse. There, beyond a labyrinth of boxes and dark hallways, lies an unexpected piece of Midtown Manhattan: a full-scale mock-up of a $10 million apartment planned for 53W53, an ultraluxury residential tower being built next to the Museum of Modern Art.

Complete with a gleaming metal and glass facade, the prototype seems as if it had been sliced from a skyscraper and plunked down on the gritty warehouse floor. But prospective buyers won’t be touring this model unit. It was built as a laboratory of sorts, to work out any kinks presented by the unusual architectural elements of 53W53, an asymmetrical 1,050-foot high tower designed by Jean Nouvel that will taper as it rises like a shard of glass.

Thierry W. Despont, the French-born designer based in TriBeCa whose résumé includes the restoration of the Statue of Liberty and, currently, the interiors of the Woolworth Tower Residences, is crafting the interiors of the 140 condominiums for 53W53, which will rise at 53 West 53rd Street.

“Welcome to our playground,” he said, during a recent visit to the Brooklyn warehouse. “Many people do model apartments when they have a finished product. This is way beyond that.”

Unlike most buildings, which hide support columns within their interiors, 53W53 will have an exposed diagonal structural network, known as a diagrid, incorporated into a sloping glass facade. From the outside, this geometric pattern makes for a striking architectural statement. On the inside it causes windows to tilt inward, blinds to hang off-kilter, and columns to traverse exposures at a slant. Further complicating design matters is the tower’s tapering effect, which occurs at varying angles, shrinking each floor by roughly two feet as the building gets taller.

Nice!!! 217 will have serious competition because this is a better location, as is Steinway.

I wonder how wide this is compared to Steinway.

Does anyone know how wide the tower portion will be (from east to west) compared with Steinway?

Wowowow. Just gorgeous.

I have to admit though, while it would be an almost artistic statement to live in this building, and it's in a better location than some of the Billionaires Row towers... having those big beams obstructing my panoramic views would be a bummer. I guess that's what this mock-up is all about, figuring out the best way to use the unusual space.

But hey, I can't afford to live there so I'll just continue to admire it from outside and not worry myself over such things.

If you were to compare both towers dimension wise from the base…

Steinway North & South Side = 58.75’ Wide

vs.

North & South Side = 108’ Wide



Steinway Tower


Tower Verre

Thanks, VG. Verre's base on the north might be 108', but I think that the tower is not as wide as the base or is it?

No, the thread hasn't been moved although piling is ongoing and caissons are placed. I already made the request a few days ago, I guess we have to be patient.

So it looks like the bulk of the tower will either be 87.33' or 67.5' wide, depending on what that section on the lower left is.
