I still find it remarkable how wide the park and midtown facing side is and how utterly skinny the building looks from the east and west.
The crown of One57 is insanely tacky.
And that’s the best part of the building lol.
This ‘oversized’ punch window will provide great views of Central Park; another feature of ultra-luxury living in NYC. There seems to be two very different types of windows in these new luxury condo buildings: floor-to-ceiling windows, or this type of ‘oversized’ punched windows. The punch window, if large, are best by far IMHO.
Large crown mouldings at the ceiling with some odd ‘gap’ which may be AC vents, heavy wood trim around the windows, some sort of large outer frame/soffit around the main window frame, large base board moulding; this is a good example of a heavily built-out interior. I think this sort of interior detailing and wood trim goes part and parcel with the neoclassical traditional architecture; so I see why the extra detailing is done on this type of building. I prefer the more minimal modernist architecture: but to each his/her their own preference.
Forget about 111W57 down the street, every time I see a side profile of 220 CPS I remember that it actually is an extremely slim building — except it’s the side elevations and not the north and south elevations.
the success of this tower can’t be understated. Those protected, unobstructed views of Central Park are selling like hotcakes at exorbitant prices even with the pandemic. 23 units sold since March with an average price of 33 million.
