Construction is nearing completion on 106 West 56th Street, a 403-foot-tall office building in Midtown. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by private equity firm Savanna along with Hong Kong-based developer Atom Assets, the slim 27-story structure rises between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue, one street to the south of Billionaires’ Row.

Recent photos show the stepped glass curtain wall substantially complete on the main northern elevation, while the mostly blank eastern wall is being covered in its final exterior panels. A section of floor-to-ceiling glass spans several levels on the corner and will provide more natural light for occupants. The mechanical extension above the last office floor is also underway with scaffolding rigs seen on the northern side. Each of the setbacks will act as outdoor terraces for occupants. Meanwhile, down below the tall green sidewalk scaffolding remains standing but should likely be dismantled in the coming weeks or months. The overall façade contrasts with its neighbor to the east, which is clad in brick and stone, and the abutting residential building to the west with its string of balconies and dark metal panels.

The layouts within 106 West 56th Street are tailored to smaller companies with the total rentable space measuring around 90,000 square feet. The largest floor plates are found in the bottom half of the steel-framed superstructure and steadily reduce in size with height. Those working near the top will have views of Central Park and the row of residential supertalls that define Billionaires’ Row.

Developers of 106 West 56th Street are aiming for LEED certification and it looks like the building could open sometime later this year.

  1. I like the stepped design of this one, and then also combined with the nice glass panels. 106 West 56th Street has a very sleek look to it, which I absolutely love. Nice.

  2. Great location but just another windowless glass box. There’s nothing about this building that identifies it as quintessentially New York. I suggest they move it to Kansas City.

  3. Hola how can I get a appointment I have section 8 voucher I am looking for a one bedroom

  6. What a bunch of neighborhood terrorist this project has been. They don’t give a damn about the neighbors as right now the guys working out side are cranking music or constantly yelling at the top of their lungs at 8 a.m. I have to listen to mariachi music like it’s happy hour and Tijuana. It’s disgusting the disregard and lack of consideration they have for the factor in a residential neighborhood these people should be fined and penalized and it looks exactly like the Hilton Grand Vacations Club at 102 West 57th absolutely no creativity whatsoever and I am an architect. Just another stepped back glass box with zero creativity
