The finishing exterior touches are underway on 111 West 57th Street, a 1,428-foot supertall residential skyscraper in Midtown and the world’s most slender building with a height-to-width ratio of 24:1. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners, 111 West 57th Street will yield 60 units designed by Studio Sofield and marketed by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. The project is located on Billionaires’ Row between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, and is almost perfectly aligned with the center line of Central Park.

The 2.5-million-square-foot skyscraper is located between Park and Madison Avenues and 47th and 48th Streets and replaces the Union Carbide Building, which is now fully demolished.
Construction has topped out on the ten-story addition atop 685 Fifth Avenue, a 100,000-square-foot office-to-condominium conversion in Midtown, Manhattan.

Addressed as 217 West 57th Street, the soaring 131-story skyscraper is designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill and developed by Extell and holds the crown as the tallest structure by roof height in the Western Hemisphere and the tallest residential building in the world. Corcoran Sunshine and Extell Marketing Group are leading sales for its 179 units and are anticipating a $4 billion sellout. The property rises between West 57th and West 58th Streets and includes Nordstrom retail frontage along Broadway.

The Midtown site is bound by West 34th Street to the north, Tenth Avenue to the east, West 33rd Street to the south, and Hudson Boulevard to the west.
