YIMBY went to check out the views from the 75th floor of SHoP Architects‘ 111 West 57th Street. The world’s most slender building has nearly perfectly centered views of Central Park to the north, and clear views of the Empire State Building down to One World Trade Center to the south.

40 Bleecker Street‘s detailed curtain wall is finally being unveiled from behind the black netting and scaffolding.

The façade consists of large windows vertically grouped in two-story pairs among a tight narrow grid across the wide western elevation facing Mulberry Street and the shorter northern profile along Bleecker Street. The 12-story residential building in NoHo is designed by Rawlings Architects and developed by Broad Street Development, and will include a total of 61 one- to five-bedroom units.
