We’ve already been talking about them for years, but some of the city’s most notable new buildings have finally become more than just a hole in the ground. Construction site frequenter Tectonic has been traversing the city and charting the rise of these buildings. Here’s the latest on some of Manhattan’s most notable new towers.
YIMBY spotted this photo of 111 West 57th Street, the Billionaire’s Row contribution of SHoP Architects, Property Markets Group, and JDS Development Group. The tower will, in time, be one of New York City’s tallest at 1,428 feet and 82 stories, but as of now the superstructure stands at a mighty seven stories tall.
But it’s already made a notable contribution to the city’s skyline: the tallest freestanding construction crane in New York City, at 220 feet, is positioned at the site.
In March amid a slowdown in the luxury sales market, the tower’s developers announced that they’d be holding sales in the building until it hit 800 feet in height. That’s supposed to be sometime next year, but as of now there’s a long way to go.
