Height is the first thing you notice about One57, but the building is even more dominating when taken in the context of 57th Street. The 57th Street ‘skyscraper canyon’ is enhanced significantly by One57, which frames the thoroughfare perfectly alongside its neighbor across the street, the Carnegie Hall Tower.
The view will be even more impressive come 2015. 432 Park will be complete (or nearly complete), and 225 West 57th will likely be looming over the neighborhood by that point as well–and One57 will be the skyscraper that’s dwarfed!
