The world’s skinniest skyscraper will soon open up in New York City.
Rising more than 1,400 feet above the ground, 111 W. 57th Street features a facade made from bronze and terra cotta. Its height-to-width ratio, 24:1, makes it the skinniest tower in the world. The new structure stands on top of the historic Steinway Hall, which has been called a “timeless monument to classical music and architecture” by New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission.
Kevin Maloney, a co-developer and founder of Property Markets Group, praised the building in a statement for “its unrivaled location, genuine architectural pedigree and perfect symmetry over Central Park.”
Listings for the property went live on Monday, featuring a variety of full-floor and duplex residences. Take a look at some of the renderings.
The condo tower recently surpassed the 73rd floor, and it is expected to top out in January 2019.
Residences will cost anywhere from $18 million (R267 million) for 420 square metres to about $56 million (R830 million) for 660 square metres. Apartments have three or four bedrooms.
The building’s interior features Great Rooms with 14-foot-tall ceilings, solid oak floors, and entrance galleries with white macauba stone floors.
Some of the amenities include a two-lane lap pool, a spa with sauna, steam and treatment rooms, and a lounge with an outdoor terrace.
Residents can also access a private dining room, a fitness centre, and several meeting rooms.
The walls and floors in master bathrooms are finished in veined white onyx, custom sconces, and bronze fixtures.
