The luxurious Steinway Tower at 111 West 57th Street, has reached a key milestone. The pencil-thin skyscraper has topped with its superstructure now complete.

This building was made by New Yorkers through and through.

Take in 10 standout facts about midtown’s latest architectural needle:

1. On completion, Steinway Tower will hold the title of world’s most slender skyscraper, with a width-to-height ratio of approximately 1:24.

2. The skyscraper will be 1,428 feet or 435 meters tall. This makes it taller than Rafael Viñoly’s 432 Park Avenue (1,396 feet) and ONE57 by Atelier Christian de Portzamparc (1,005 feet).

3. Steinway Tower boasts 82 floors. The first 5 will contain shared recreation spaces and high-end retail, while the upper 77 will house luxury apartments.

4. 111 West 57th Street is situated on what is known as Billionaire’s Row, named for the super-wealthy investors that are driving the construction of residential towers along 57th and adjacent streets. Other luxury towers on the 57th street include 432 Park Avenue, One 57 and Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture’s Central Park Tower.

5.The highest apartment is expected to fetch at least $100 million. This might seem high, but would be nothing out of the ordinary for New York: Billionaire Ken Griffin recently purchased the penthouse at 220 Central Park South for $238 million.

6. The building’s bronze and terracotta façade references New York’s art deco history, with slender mullions that curve upwards towards the crown.

7. According to YIMBY, the tower’s construction required 49,000 cubic yards of concrete.

8. The tower’s tapering form was inspired by New York’s iconic early-20th century towers. SHoP Architects’ describe it as “a bold interpretation of what is possible within the requirements of the Midtown Manhattan zoning envelope.”

9. The project uses the “air rights” of Steinway Hall, a 96-year-old historic building that housed concert halls and piano showrooms for the famous Steinway & Sons. Steinway Hall was sold to the developers of 111 West 57th Street in 2013.

10. The tower is perfectly aligned with the axis of Central Park, giving future residents a symmetrical view of this iconic public space, the Upper East Side and the Upper West Side.
