Crowning steel has reached the rooftop parapet at JDS Development Group's supertall Midtown residential tower at 111 West 57th Street. Designed by SHoP Architects, the 1,428-foot tower will offer 60 residential condos when it wraps up construction some time in 2020. Installation of the terra-cotta, bronze, and glass curtain wall has reached the last quarter of the 82-story tower.

Steinway Hall

Also included in the project is the restoration of Steinway Hall, designed in 1925 by Warren & Wetmore as the home of Steinway & Sons’ concert hall and piano showroom. The building will now be integrated into the residential function of the adjacent tower and offer four floors of luxury retail space.
