TF Cornerstone to build NYC’s largest apartment building

November 12, 2013 09:02AM

A West 57th Street project by developer TF Cornerstone will be New York City’s largest apartment building when completed, with 1,189 units, according to city records.

The environmental impact statement for the 40-story tower, at 606 West 57th Street between 11th and 12th avenues, proposes two scenarios, according to a report from New York YIMBY. The first calls for 1,189 residential units and 42,000 square feet of retail; the second cuts the number of units to 848 but calls for a 285-room hotel and over 60,000 square feet of retail space.

To be sure, many residential complexes in the city, such as the massive Stuyvesant Town- Peter Cooper Village, have more apartment units, but the TF Cornerstone project would have the most units in a single building, according to New York YIMBY.

The tower – designed as multiple cantilevering boxes — is slated to be completed in 2017, according to New York YIMBY, but the current proposals still have to pass the muster of the ULURP process. [NY YIMBY]Hiten Samtani
