Today, YIMBY has the exclusive scoop for the first renderings of developer Sheldon Solow’s next skyscraper, at 12 West 57th Street in Midtown, Manhattan. The 672-foot-tall, 52-story skyscraper will rise directly across 57th Street from the Solow Building at 9 West 57th Street, and is also designed by Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill. Solow Management Corp. filed permits for the development in 2019, and since then demolition has been clearing the buildings on the lot, spanning from 10 to 20 West 57th Street and back to 56th Street, one by one.
