W57 / January 19, 2014

Architects: BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group); Program: Residential; Location: New York, NY. Completion: 2015.

As for now, there is little indication of the iconic 467 foot pyramid yet to rise at BIG's first New York project on the far west side of Manhattan.  Only the beginnings of the ground floor concrete superstructure have been poured. Along West 58th Street, the protruding edges of the rotated units that comprise the facade of the back edge of the pyramid are taking shape.
