Take your first look at the Art Deco-inspired interiors for 111 West 57 Street, the world's second tallest residential building at 1,428 feet (91 stories)! The building consists of 46 full-floor and duplex condos that all feel like a penthouse (not to mention the insane 360-degree views of Manhattan). SHoP Architects describes the terra cotta, glass, and bronze facade building to be “uniquely New York”.
The new tower incorporates the landmarked, 1925-constructed Steinway Building, which developers JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners began acquiring in 2013 for a total cost of $217.5 million. Because both the interiors and exteriors of the Steinway Hall building are designated landmarks, along with the building’s sheer size, the project was one of the city’s most complicated residential buildings. The facade and the rotunda are currently being restored, in collaboration with the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Its residences and retails will be connected to the new tower through a revamped lobby.
The first complete unit rests on the 43rd floor spanning the width of the tower. The full-floor apartment contains three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, direct elevator entry, 14-foot ceilings, and unobstructed views of Central Park. A nod to the historic Steinway Building, the interiors boast custom bronze hardware, dark wood, and onyx. Oh, of course, the asking price ---> $28.75M.
Sales launched last fall with residences starting at $16 million and going up to $56 million for a penthouse on the 72nd floor. There are also “Landmark Residences” penthouses which are located within the Steinway Hall building. Closings are expected to start next spring for both tower and landmark residences. Amenities at 111 West 57th include an 82-foot swimming pool with private cabanas and separate sauna room, a fitness center with a mezzanine terrace, a private dining room, a resident’s lounge, and 24-hour attended entrances and concierge service. There will be a private porte-cochère at the 58th Street entrance.
