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 for 4,491 square feet to about $56 million for 7,128 square feet. 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.
