YIMBY went to check out the views from the 75th floor of SHoP Architects‘ 111 West 57th Street. The world’s most slender building has nearly perfectly centered views of Central Park to the north, and clear views of the Empire State Building down to One World Trade Center to the south. JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners are developing the 1,428-foot-tall residential skyscraper, which has a height-to-width ratio of 24:1. A total of 46 condominiums will be created and marketed by Douglas Elliman. Studio Sofield is the interior designer.
The exterior of The Warehouse, aka 520 West 20th Street, is getting closer to completion in West Chelsea. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Elijah Equities, the mixed-use office development is located close to the High Line between West 19th Street and West 20th Street. The project features the restored 50-foot-tall brick façade of a former industrial building topped by a new suspended and cantilevering steel structure that brings the total height to 105 feet.
The latest phase of Silverstein Properties’ extensive restoration of the Equitable Building at 120 Broadway includes a series of street art inspired murals within the landmarked tower. Located on the third floor, the installations bring new life to the century-old office building.

Excavation and foundation work on 29th & 5th, Bjarke Ingels Group‘s proposed skyscraper at 3 West 29th Street, gets deeper below the streets of NoMad. A number of excavators and piling machines are actively digging and inserting long metal pilings into the earth at the site, which is just five blocks south of the Empire State Building and almost on the centerline of the 88-year-old Art Deco icon. BIG’s project is being developed by HFZ Capital Group and is slated to rise 551 feet tall and 34 stories.
