JDS Development and Property Markets Group have unveiled new renderings for the 1,350-foot hotel-and-condominium tower at 111 West 57th Street.
Steinway Hall, a 247,000-square-foot, 16-story building, is currently located on the site. The developer plans to combine it with a vacant parcel at 105-107 West 57th Street to create a mixed-use development that might hang on to the Steinway name. Diagrams of the building posted on Architectural Record indicate that the highest penthouse will be about 1,100 feet above the street.
The skyscraper, being designed by SHoP Architects, is expected to be ready by 2016. [New York Yimby] — Mark Maurer
