At more than 1,000 feet tall, One57 (as it’s been dubbed by its developer, Extell) has bragging rights to being the tallest residential building in New York — at least until 432 Park Avenue is completed.
One57 is slated for completion at the end of 2013 or in early 2014. (This photo and the two others you will see in this slideshow are representations).
Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning French architect Christian de Portzamparc, One57 is perched atop the Park Hyatt Hotel, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Central Park.
Extell reports that 50 percent of the building is already sold, with $1 billion in transactions. And speaking of billions, "The New York Times" reports that a couple of billionaire fashion executives who took Michael Kors public — Silas K.F. Chou and Lawrence Stroll — each purchased $50 million units.
This representation of an apartment at 157 W. 57th St. has views of Central Park, the Hudson River, the state of New Jersey and more.
