111 West 57th Street’s Super-Slender Concrete Formwork Officially Tops Out Atop Billionaires’ Row, In Midtown

Construction at 111 West 57th Street has reached a major milestone, as the reinforced concrete superstructure for the second-tallest building in New York City by roof height and the world’s most slender building is now topped out. The future 1,428-foot-tall tower is being designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners. Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing for the 46 condominiums.

In a joint statement, JDS Developmet’s Michael Stern and Property Markets Group’s Kevin Maloney told YIMBY,

The superstructure completion of 111 West 57th Street is a major construction milestone. We are so proud of the design and construction of this building and are thrilled to share it with New Yorkers as it begins to fully come to fruition, including the imminent installation of the decorative crown, marking the official top off. This building was made by New Yorkers through and through, and that’s very exciting to us.

Recent photos show the rising Art Deco-patterned terra cotta panels on the sides of the skyscraper while the glass panels on the north and south sides are also going up.

Yes. After the facade itself, I think it's the best part of the tower. It may look even better in reality.

Scroll down and read some of the comments on the yimby article regarding the topping out (concrete formwork)

https://newyorkyimby.com/2019/04/111...n-midtown.html

There are some folks that really, really... don't like this.

Even saying the architecture is bad.

They are a nuts I'd imagine. This tower is a work of art, not "" Zero architectural aesthetics. A sty in the Manhattan skyline. Keep your box of spaghetti that took 6 years to build. ""

I think a lot of people dislike what the really tall residential towers represent. They're something everyone has to look at but will never be able to afford. I kind of agree with that sentiment. But I like skyscrapers so much that I overlook it.

I agree with this. Tall buildings are not to be feared, and can be admired. Same reason why folks admire Lambos or La Ferraris. And some of these folks live in a city full of them. I say... hey "Agnus" or "Petuna", if you don't like it, move to the suburbs. Actually, move to NJ, plenty of single family homes. Just a rivers crossing away from Manhattan actually.

I find that people on the internet or any public forum generally dislike anything being built or proposed. This tower could be 1,400 ft of affordable housing, and they still wouldn't like it.

As far as politics, we don't get into those discussions here.

^I like that Instagram post: "No rain at the top"!

Is the crown going to be 100% decorative, or will it have a few steps or even floors that people can climb?

The biggest obstacle with this building is trying to get a photo of the entire building while still enjoying the insanely good details it has. Either the photo is zoomed out and encapsulates the wonderfully elegant massing, or it's zoomed in to show off the incredible facade details.
