111 West 57th Street Continues Rising As Glass, Bronze, And Terracotta Begin To Glisten

JDS Development Group’s 111 West 57th Street has made substantial construction progress as the 1,428-foot tower climbs into prominence in the Midtown Manhattan skyline. The curtain wall installation is well underway and visible from the street, with glass on the north and south facades and the supertall’s signature terracotta and bronze along the east and west facades. The project will soon break through the so-called “Midtown-Plateau” to take its place as one of the tallest residential skyscrapers in New York City. Designed by SHoP Architects, the tower will be the third tallest in New York City and one of the most slender skyscrapers in the world at a width to height ration of 1:24.
