Steinway Hall’s restored facade at 111 West 57th Street has been revealed as JDS & Property Markets Group move forward with construction of the skinny, luxury residential supertall on Billionaire's Row. 111 West 57th Street was designed by SHoP Architects who had to integrate the historical Steinway Hall, which was originally designed in 1925 by Warren & Wetmore and served as the legendary piano company's headquarters until 2014, into the new building's design. The historical building will serve as the resident's entry and private porte cochère.
111 West 57th Street will feature full floor and duplex apartments with 360-degree views and unparalleled views of Central Park. The tower will rise 1,400' when completed it will be among the tallest towers in the city and the most slender skyscraper in the world. SHoP's design for the tower form multiplies the set-back to present a feathered profile. The terra-cotta facades and bronze filigree aim to bring back the quality, materiality and details of historic New York towers, while taking advantage of the latest technology to push the limits of engineering and fabrication. 111 West 57th Street is being developed in partnership with Property Markets Group and is being built by JDS Construction Group. Completion is expected in early 2019.
