JDS Development and Property Markets Group’s 111 West 57th Street has been making substantial progress since YIMBY last checked in on the site back in August, and the soon-to-be 1,428-foot-tall tiwer continues to climb into the Midtown skyline. Glass curtain wall installation is now clearly visible and climbing on the southern side, and the supertall’s distinct terracotta and copper facade is also making major progress along the eastern face, which can be seen from street level.

Now that 111 West 57th Street is above the floors complicated by the adjacent Steinway Building, which is being integrated into the base of the supertall, the future 1,428-foot-tall tower is shooting upwards. The latest photos of progress come from Streetscaper and Tectonic, and besides new floors being added on a weekly basis, the exterior of the tower is now receiving its terracotta and bronze facade.
Centered just below Central Park’s southern edge, super-slender supertall 111 West 57th Street will probably be iconic before it is even finished. Of course, that won’t be for a couple of years. However, some visible progress is being made at the construction site in Midtown.
YIMBY has brought you several composite renderings of what the skyline will look like over the next few years. Now we have a fresh image of what the city’s future holds, thanks to YIMBY Forums user Thomas Koloski, which illustrates the major changes soon coming to Jersey City, Manhattan, and Brooklyn. Most of the projects added to the image are either already under construction or imminently rising, and their collective impact on the cityscape will push the New York City skyline to new, Coruscantian heights.
