It’s practically calligraphic, it will glint on the skyline, thanks to a genuinely opulent exterior finished in terra-cotta and bronze

Restoration

The history of 111 West 57th Street begins with the restoration and adaptation of New York City Landmark Steinway Hall

Architectural History

Historic Steinway Hall was designed by the celebrated firm Warren & Wetmore, whose artistic approach culminated in the classical proportions, carefully carved stonework, and picturesque roofline of the new home to the celebrated piano makers. In 2001, Steinway Hall was designated as a New York City landmark, hailed as a "timeless monument to classical music and architecture."

Landmark Restoration

Through time-honored techniques and materials, JDS Construction restored the landmarked Steinway Hall and interior rotunda. Restoration included replacing the copper roof and lantern, cleaning the limestone, restoring brickwork, gilding decorative features on 57th Street, new double-hung windows, and more.

The comprehensive restoration of the landmarked exterior and rotunda interior utilized time-honored techniques and materials to restore decorative painting and gilding, copper roof and lantern, limestone, brick, and more.

Terracotta

The tower: a slender beacon clad in terracotta and bronze, rising 1,428 feet high

Of all the new towers, it is the only one that gets even more delicate as it rises, ending not with a climactic crown but by almost disappearing into the sky.


Paul Goldberger, Vanity Fair

Terracotta runs the length of the skyscraper in 26 custom shapes and 6 color variations.
