One57 Combats Slow Sales With a $20M Move-In Ready Pad

Quote:
Sales at Extell's supertall One57 launched in 2011, but to date the building has yet to sell out—a quick perusal of StreetEasy shows that 22 units remain available, with some of those even marketed as rentals. To try and mitigate that dreaded sluggishness, the developer is taking a new tactic: According to the Wall Street Journal, Extell spent approximately $1 million to have interior designer Jennifer Post create a turnkey apartment. Every single detail—from the furniture to the linens to the soap in the bathroom—is already in place, so all a prospective tenant has to do is show up.

After handling sales in-house for much of the past few years, the developer tapped Douglas Elliman and Sotheby's to market some of its apartments, including a $30 million, three-bedroom unit.

But as the luxury condo market softens, it makes sense that developers would try new things to offload their outstanding units—in One57's case, the building is only 80 percent sold, despite its apartments being on the market for four years. But Extell honcho Gary Barnett seems confident that this experiment will pay off, and said that the developer is considering creating more turnkey units in the building. "We think this is really going to spur sales," he told the WSJ.

Not only is the market softening, but the appeal of One57 is waning as taller, better-designed towers are being built along 57th street...

As I passed by the other morning I inquired about the scaffolding still up and was told they are still "capping" the windows...

What does that entail ?

What ever happened to the lighting on the north facing "fan" at the top of the building? Has the idea been scotched?

Looks like it hasn't. This was posted by user "chused" on YimbyForums yesterday:

Did anyone else see this?

Edit: Lol I didn't realize the person asking this question is very much likely the same person who posted to Yimby. So you probably already know the answer

Oh man. This feels like both a great and terrible portent. Obviously this is just an LED test and we've only ever seen it rendered with white light, but if they light this up with any wacky colors, it will be awful.

Flexible Materials Skyscraper.

Nowadays, the construction of the building needs a lot of time, manpower, and working procedure. A variety of buildings are formed through being assembled with different materials. However, the changeless rigid material has not been able to meet the people’s pursuit of the architectural form, and the complex construction process also limits the development of the building. So we hope to explore a new architectural model to meet people’s pursuit of architectural form while reducing the tedious construction process. Draping – just like putting on clothes for a building, which are tailor made from inside to outside. We hope to find out a new material which can be arbitrarily folded, cut, enclosed, sewed, turned over, and falls into a pattern. Tower just shows such a concept and form. Most of its exterior spread like vertically carpet from its top floor, the local contraction showing a part of the internal details. In addition, its interior is assembled with more detailed small units. This method not only makes the construction of the building more convenient and simple, makes the building repaired easily, but also makes the material easily reused and recycled after the demolition.
As a result, the building will be able to developed more possibilities, the burden that formed for modeling reduced in the aspect of structure, so the method is more convenient for the construction process and for recycling to reuse, which solves the problem that the vast majority of construction waste, and also brings people a new space experience.
