The Lustrous History of Steinway Hall + See Progress on its Supertall Annex, 111 West

The supertall tower in the works at 111 West 57th Street is proof that historic New York can sit comfortably beside extreme heights. Slated to top out at 1,421 feet, JDS and Property Markets Group‘s skyscraper will ultimately reign among the tallest towers in the city and as the most slender skyscraper in the world.
The supertall tower stands connected and adjacent to the original landmarked Steinway Hall designed in 1925 by Warren & Wetmore (architects of Grand Central Terminal), where Steinway & Sons housed its iconic collection of pianos. During development, the team accounted for the prominent 10-story building by restoring its façade to its former limestone glory and incorporating it as the arrival point of the new address.
