Plumbing plans filed by Extell for 953-foot-tall, mixed-use tower at 155 West 57th Street

Extell Development's plumbing plans for a 953-foot-high, mixed-use tower at 155 East 57th Street were assigned today to an Department of Buildings examiner.

The 73-story tower would have 150 condominium apartments and a hotel. It would contain a total of 1,626,940 square feet of which 676,688 square feet would be residential.

According to plans filed by Costas Kondylis & Associates, the architectural firm, in March, the building would have accessory parking for 64 cars and the hotel would occupy the lower 20 floors.

The 21st floor would house a residential dining room, library and lounge and floors 22 through 30 would have 6 apartments per floor, floors 31 through 45 would have 4 apartments per floor, the 46th floor would be mechanical equipment, floors 47 through 58 would have two apartments per floor, floors 59 and 60 would constitute one duplex apartment, floors 61 through 70 would have one apartment per floor, and floors 71 and 72 would constitute one duplex apartment.

Excavation of the site has been proceeding recently. The site is across 57th Street from the Russian Tea Room restaurant and the Metropolitan Tower. The new tower, on which Frank Williams, the architect, has also worked, would be taller than the area's three tallest skyscrapers: Carnegie Hill Tower and the Metropolitan Tower on 57th Street, and CitiSpire on 56th Street. The new tower would block some views of Central Park from the Metropolitan Tower, which has an angled facade.

Extell owns another development site nearby to the west, the former Hard Rock restaurant location on 57th Street.

In a December 2, 2008 article in The New York Post, Steve Cuozzo wrote that the site extends through the block to 58th Street and is adjacent to two landmarks, the former CAMI Hall at 163-5 West 57thStreet and Alwyn Court on West 58th Street.

PS: The DOB figures are always about 30 m shorter than the tower actually is as they don't include mechanicals or crowns -- just the highest occupied floor.

Not yet.

The developer, Extell, stated that they will be released in 2009. This project should be moved to u/c.

Nah, Im only kidding. Can't wait to see it, though. I can only imagine what the 59/60 and 71/72 duplexes will cost.

Why was this moved to skyscrapers from supertall. It is planned to be 300+ m?

Also, why is it still proposed since it's under construction?

LUXURY HOTEL TO RISE ON 57TH ST.

December 2, 2008

A 1,000 foot-tall hotel and condo tower is coming to Extell's West 57th Street development site that's now a giant hole in the ground.

That's according to the company hired to provide "physical and electronic security" for Gary Barnett's project. Aren't security firms supposed to keep secrets secure?

in the last article it says 953 feet, probably because of that. but it will be taller than 953 feet....because they only counted the highest usable floor and not technicals or crowns etc...

Yes. But it's on file with the NY Dep't of Buildings as 953 feet which means that it will clearly be over 1,000 feet as the DOB does not count mechanicals or anything else above the highest occupied floor (e.g., crowns). Every building in NYC has mechanicals above the highest occupied floor. Therefore, why move it to skyscrapers rather than supertall?

Also, my contacts in NY state that there is an army of workers at this site from 9 to 5 daily. Therefore, why not move it to u/c?

It could alway be moved back to supertalls, I guess we will have to wait until the renders are released.

It was ridiculous to move it though since it clearly will be over 300m. If it were on file for 850 feet, it could or could not surpass 1,000 feet. However, that it's on file for 953 feet means that, without a doubt, it wil exceed 1,000 feet.

I don't know why this 1,000+ foot building was moved from super tall to highrise, but I also don't know why it's still listed as proposed when it's clearly under construction as shown in this photo by Derek323 from the 23rd of June 2009.

Looks like demolition to me. It would be very quick construction knowing that the Department of Buildings examiner has received this project 2 weeks ago.

The buildings on this site were demolished over a year ago. After demolition was completed, the site sat fallow for about 10 months. Work resumed about two months ago.

The fact that the developer submitted plumbing plans two weeks ago is further evidence of construction.

With this skyscraper, the three-skyscraper cluster south of Central Park is going to have a new member.

This building is under construction, and it's a supertall. According to my mates in NY, there is activity at the site all day 5 days per week. Also, since it's listed at 950+ with the Dep't of Buildings, there is no possibility that it will not exceed 1,000 feet.
