The glass curtain of 106 West 56th Street appears to have recently reached the top floor of the 403-foot-tall office building. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by private equity firm Savanna along with Hong Kong-based developer Atom Assets, the 27-story structure stands topped out between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue, one street to the south of Billionaires’ Row.
New photos from Tectonic looking up from street level show the glass finally reaching the last setback. This angle also reveals the gently stepped profile of the main northern elevation. The only external work remaining is on the blank side walls and around the ground floor. Progress on the interiors should carry on over the coming months.
Each of the six setbacks will serve as an outdoor terrace for office tenants, and the layouts within the building are tailored to smaller-sized companies. The total rentable space is around 90,000 square feet, with the largest floor plates in the bottom half of the superstructure. Those near the top will have views of Central Park and the row of supertalls that define Billionaires’ Row. Among them is 111 West 57th Street, which happens to almost perfectly align with the centerline of the construction project. The developers of 106 West 56th Street also also aiming for LEED certification.
The nearest transit options to the site are the F train at the 57th Street station on Sixth Avenue and the N, Q, R, and W trains to the west on Seventh Avenue.
It’s unclear when 106 West 56th Street will be finished, though the end of the year or early 2021 seems likely.
