Since it just says a range, I think this is likely to be your answer. A lot of buildings in the U.S. still skip numbering the 13th floor. It always seemed silly to me - Don't the people on 14 know that they're REALLY on 13??? But that is how it's done around here. So if they are using floor numbers as labeled by the building, it is likely that 12-16 is only 4 floors, and 13 is omitted.

I never understood that "unlucky 13th floor" thing too..
If someone is scared of number 13 then that's his problem..Don't buy apartment on 13th floor..Someone who don't give a shit about that crap would buy it..

Looks like about 10 floors to really be out from behind the buildings in front. Then this will be very noticeable :-)

What's sad is that to any average new yorker, this is just another day in manhattan 8D. Though it'll change once this thing gets taller.

You kiddin' with me? This building looks 10x better than the surrounding fugly buildings. OK, they aren't ugly but not very attractive.

I point out how ugly it is, all the time but there isn't much we can do about it now. That god I like supertalls.

Penthouses at Extell's One57 ask $98.5MAugust 18, 2011 08:30AM

Extell President Gary Barnett and a rendering of One57
Two stellar penthouses at One57, Extell Development's prospective 1,000-foot condominium and hotel tower on West 57th Street, are being shopped around by the city's biggest brokers for $98.5 million apiece, the New York Post reported.

One penthouse on the 90th floor will clock in at 10,923 square feet, the Post said, while the other, on the 75th floor, will be 12,554 square feet. They may be the priciest preconstruction condos ever, sources said.

Slated to be the city's largest residential tower at 90 floors, the building is slated to be completed within two years. The developer is partnering on the project with an Abu Dhabi government fund, which controls most of the equity.

Designed by Christian de Portzamparc, the building will have a Park Hyatt hotel on its first 30 floors, and 95 luxury condos will take up the remaining 60 floors. [Post]
