111 West 57th Street is a supertall residential project by developers JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group in midtown Manhattan in New York City. The development will be a combination of the original landmarked Steinway Building designed in 1925 by Warren & Wetmore, and a new tower addition on the adjacent site. The building will rise to be 1,438 ft (438 m). The tower will become the most slender building in the world with a width-to-height ratio of about 1:23.

Construction and history

111 West 57th Street was originally known as 107 West 57th Street. The building was approved in January 2015. Excavation began in 2014, as did internal demolition within Steinway Hall. The tallest freestanding crane in NYC history, at 220 feet, is being used in the construction of the building. The building will include an 800-ton tuned mass damper to provide stability in the event of high winds or a seismic event.

The Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York has criticized the building's developer, JDS, for not giving their workers adequate safety training, and for not using union labor.

Design

The skyscraper was designed by SHoP Architects and is being developed by Michael Stern's JDS Development Group and Kevin P. Maloney's Property Markets Group. The north side of the tower rises directly up to the pinnacle of the building. On the south side of the tower, a series of setbacks appear as the tower rises. As the height of the building increases, the setbacks eventually thin out, with the tower "disappearing into the sky." The building's interiors were designed by Studio Sofield. Writing for Vanity Fair, Paul Goldberger referred to the plans for 111 as "quite possibly the most elegant" of the new structures planned for 57th Street and around Central Park, which include One57, 432 Park Avenue, 220 Central Park South, and the as of yet unbuilt 225 West 57th Street.

Amenities

The building will have a porte-cochere, and a recital hall will be constructed as an homage to the fact that the building is being constructed on top of Steinway Hall.
