Construction at 106 West 56th Street has recently topped out at 27 stories. The Perkins Eastman-designed office building stands 403 feet tall and is being developed by private equity firm Savanna Fund, along with Hong Kong-based developer Atom Assets. The steel superstructure and its gentle setbacks should soon see the first glass curtain wall panels installed in the coming weeks. The site is located just one block south of 57th Street, aka Billionaires’ Row.

New photos from street level highlight the ongoing progress on all sides of the tower.

106 West 56th street will eventually contain about 90,000 square feet of office space tailored specifically to smaller-sized firms. The upper floors will offer views of Central Park. The developers are also aiming to achieve LEED certification.

The property is located between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue. The closest subway is the F train at the 57 Street station on Sixth Avenue, while the N, Q, R, and W trains are nearby to the west on Seventh Avenue and West 57th Street.

Completion of 106 West 56th street is expected sometime next year.

  1. 90000 feet. That’s literally less than two floors of the old WTC. Amazing how they can make it work.
