LED Crown Atop 73-Story One57 Illuminated for First Time

YIMBY’s last update on One57 — the 73-story mixed-use tower, with 92 condominiums perched above a 210-key Park Hyatt Hotel, at 157 West 57th Street, in Midtown — was back in August of 2014. At the time, the removal of sidewalk shedding was underway, which signaled that construction had been completed. One last element, however, wasn’t revealed until earlier this week: the structure’s LED crown that faces Central Park. The western half was turned on, as seen in a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. Renderings have long suggested an illuminated crown on the 1,005-foot-tall tower, which was designed by Paris-based Atelier Christian de Portzamparc. Extell Development Company developed One57. Per a count done in the spring, 38 condos remained unsold.
