The Real Deal New York

A new look is available at what will be the city’s tallest residential tower, JDS Development’s and Property Markets Group’s 111 West 57th Street.

The building — which will stand 1,428 feet tall — will house 60 condominiums, 46 in the tower and 14 in the Steinway building, which will make up the base of the spire, according to the developer. Prices for the condominiums will start at $14 million, according to the project’s new website.

Michael Stern’s JDS is looking to build the tower without the help of any union workers, something the Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York has opposed vehemently. It would be the city’s tallest building ever built without union labor. Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer also got involved in the fight recently by writing a letter citing safety concerns. — Claire Moses



  • NYC

    a big middle finger to central park. Sad to see all these buildings (which will most-likely remain empty apartments) cast shadows over what ever nature we have left in this world.

        It is still nice to have nature here in NYC.


    it looks dangerously slim

    where will he get a non-union operating engineer to work the crane?

  • ragingagainst

    Make no mistake: Union ‘elements’ will sabotage the construction of this building from Day 1, thru violence, intimidation and ‘accidents’. There is no way that such a high-profile building will be built in NYC without unions involved. Lets just hope too many people aren’t killed prior to the unions inevitably prevailing.

      Right, every problem on the site will be from the unions who aren’t working there.

      You must be getting paid to say that.

  • Realest Minority

    i would love to have s*ex on the top floor

  • Thompson de Guys

    Ridiculously out of proportion with its surroundings…this should never have been allowed. A monument to stupidity, greed and arrogance in the heart of Manhattan.

    • Char4Dew

      It must have been some lobbyist who got lots of payola that permitted this. :(

  • Char4Dew

    To me everything about it looks dangerous. it is too tall, to slim, and may be built by some unlicensed workers. When they don’t want union, they often get some who are unlicensed. :(
    My building had a majorvfire due to unlicensed electricians.

  • joe blo

    I understand that will not use a crane everything will be carried up by
    undocumented workers that Obama and blah blah Blasio are bringing in.
    blah blah blasio is requiring that two of the top floors will be used to
    house the homeless in his effort to clean up the now graffiti laden
    buildings and subway station at 34th St.

    • Lordyuyu

      lol blah blah blasio. love it. i might use that from now on

  • 18:1 building ratio is scarey. maybe the units closer to the ground should cost more $ !!

  • Anon resident

    This building reminds me of the 1970’s movie Towering Inferno.
    So, they get tax breaks, use none union labor and if you follow the $ trail you will see that Extell is a large donor to Cuomo.
