Tall and Slender: The World’s Skinniest Skyscraper – Yahoo News

Yahoo News profiles the new “slender” profile in New York City skyscrapers and interviews JDS Development Founder Michael Stern about 111 West 57th Street. Stern notes that in New York, where land is scarce, and thanks to advances in engineering, taller and slimmer buildings are taking shape on smaller parcels of land. Stern also points out that the high prices that buyers are willing to pay for Central Park Views represents the key factor that makes these super-tall buildings economically feasible. Each floor of 111 West 57th Street houses its own luxury residence with Central Park views.
