Only 63? seems too little for a building this size and so luxurious. If it will have 135 units, thats mean less than half per unit.

Seems it will be the only building breaking the horizon line in the northern view from 30 Rock. Maybe also Citigroup Center, not seen in this view?

This area needs to be filled up with SkyScrapers. Manhattan having skyscrappers from East Side of Mid Town to West Side of Mid Town will be amazing to see

Citigroup Center and the antenna on the Bloomberg Tower both just manage to go above it.

I agree... In addition to the 135 condo units, there will also be 210 hotel rooms... Seems like the building might create more demand for new parking spaces than it can supply...

I doubt that many people who stay/live there will have or use cars anyway, it would be so easy to get around New York with out needing one!

Exactly. I think folks are not comprehending how Manhattan below 96 Street is not car friendly and having a car there neither confers status nor creates convenience.

I live here in NYC too, and I am telling you - rich people who live in Manhattan own cars. It is in fact convenient - for leaving NYC, not for driving around in NYC (although the very wealthiest people have chauffeurs, and are driven everywhere). And it does confer status too, if it's a nice enough car... Although if you're buying at One57, I'm not sure how much more status you think you need. Between parking and insurance, it is massively expensive to have a car here, which is why it's mainly only the wealthier people who do.

Because the top 1% rides the Subway and public Taxis. Yeah right!

I live in midtown, the wealthy have cars of their own, but they either take private car services or actually some of them just walk.

Exactly the few people that own the most expensive apartments in this building will probably have a car, but the other half/two thirds would probably get around by private car services or even taxis.

I know that New York, and particularly Manhattan, is by far the least car friendly city in the US, but come on, the people living there are upper class, I think most of them must have a car, many of them more than one, even if they don't use them every day. If they can buy an apartment there, they have enough money to have at least a car no matter how expensive it could be, a person buying in this building certainly can afford it (and of course not a cheap one)

We are way off the topic of this thread but it is relevant to why they don't build many parking spaces....

Rich people in NYC do not generally have cars and the richer you get the less likely you are to have a car. It is an inverse relationship.

Here are some demographics from the Upper East Side of Manhattan which different data:

http://www.city-data.com/neighborhoo...w-York-NY.html

Scroll down and you will see two things:

That people in this area are much richer than most people in NYC ($111,000 versus 50,000 in the rest of NYC - it is reputed to be the richest area in the United States).

And, they have far fewer cars than the people in than the rest of NYC. For people in condos and houses the car ownership rate in the richest part of NYC is .6 per household whereas in NYC as a whole it is 1.1.

BTW, note the average value of a condo on the Upper East Side is 2.7 million versus $700 thousand in the city as a whole.

So again, the more money they make and the more valuable their home is the less likely they are to own a car. The people living in One57 will be off the charts wealthy and therefore they don't need many parking spaces.

Now, I'm sure a few of them might like landing pads for their helicopters

I wouldn't be so quick to judge. I know many millionaires who take the subway because it's quick, efficient, and they don't have to wait in traffic. Bloomberg even takes the subway to 86th and Lex everyday from Brooklyn bridge.
