105 West 57th: Hotel Crillon Coming to Midtown? New Skyscraper Proposed!

Documents filed with the city reveal that another tower is in the proposal phase along 57th Street. The future building, at 105 West 57th, will contain 51 floors and rise 671′ high. Despite the building’s height, there will only be 27 apartments! The building is likely to be extremely luxurious, and prices on the finished product are likely to be quite astronomical. 10,000 square feet of the building will also be dedicated to ground-floor retail, with any tenant likely to be quite high-end given the building’s prime location.

This document also reveals that the Hotel Crillon could also potentially occupy the tower, although no other details have been released.
Here’s the permit, and while there are no firm renderings, this image is drifting around online (although the source page is no longer working!)
