A new landmark is coming on the Manhattan skyline. 111 West 57th Street will be composed of the original landmarked Steinway Hall building designed in 1925 by Warren and Wetmore and a new tower addition designed by SHoP Architects on the adjacent site, with interior design by Studio Sofield.
111 West 57th Street anchors a neighborhood of premier cultural landmarks; Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to the West; the Museum of Modern Art a few blocks South; and the living green heart of New York City, Central Park, just steps to the North.
SHoP Architects harness their interdisciplinary expertise to create architecture that makes our cities more vibrant, beautiful, and rewarding places for all to live. From its studios in New York’s historic Woolworth Building, the critically-acclaimed firm has a staff of 180 talented people and projects spanning four continents.
At the heart of SHoP’s work is a respect for the expressive potential of traditional architectural materials, and a pioneering technological capability that transforms them into inspiring statements. At 111 West 57th Street, SHoP’s design evokes the qualities of form and craft for which the finest Manhattan skyscrapers have always been celebrated. 111 will be at once unique on the skyline and impossible to imagine rising anywhere else.
