NEW YORK, July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- JDS Development Group, Property Markets Group and Spruce Capital, developers of 111 West 57th Street, announced today that Douglas Elliman Development Marketing has been appointed to oversee marketing and sales for the new condominium. The graceful tower, designed by SHoP Architects with interiors by Studio Sofield, will rise to a soaring 1,428 feet when completed. The historic Steinway Hall, originally built in 1923 by the celebrated firm Warren & Wetmore, is currently being reimagined and integrated with the modern new tower as remarkable residences and amenities.
"The design and development team have created a bold new landmark for the Manhattan skyline, and as 111 West 57th Street continues to rise, it surpasses our expectations," said Michael Stern, CEO, JDS Development Group. "We are thrilled to once again work with Douglas Elliman Development Marketing who we feel has the depth of talent and market expertise for this unique offering."
Co-developer and founder of Property Markets Group, Kevin Maloney, said, "With its unrivaled location, genuine architectural pedigree, and perfect symmetry over Central Park, 111 West 57th Street is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We look forward to a robust and exciting sales campaign."
Writing for Vanity Fair, famed architecture critic Paul Goldberger referred to the plans for the tower as "quite possibly the most elegant" of the new structures planned for the 57th Street corridor.
The marketing and sales campaign is expected to commence in September 2018, led by sales director Amy Williamson, along with leading Douglas Elliman agents Shari Scharfer-Rollins, Janice Chang, Roger Erickson and Holly Parker.
"As a company, we pride ourselves on our achievements at many of New York City's most ambitious new developments," said Howard M. Lorber, Chairman, Douglas Elliman Realty, LLC. "111 West 57th Street, with its world-class architecture, unparalleled Central Park views, and stunning amenity package makes it one of the most important and unique, sought-after new developments in New York City."
The building's design evokes the quality, materiality and proportions of the historic New York City skyscraper, while taking advantage of the latest technology to push the boundaries of engineering and fabrication. The unique terra-cotta and elegant bronze filigree that clads the east and west façades create a sweeping play on shadow and light while providing incredible texture and richness. A glass curtain wall along the north and south façades will take full advantage of the tower's extensive views of Central Park and Downtown Manhattan.
"With one home per floor, this is a very exclusive offering of only 46 full-floor and duplex tower residences. Each residence features grand proportions and impeccably planned interiors, boasting breathtaking 360-degree views," said Susan de França, President and CEO, Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. "We're eager to start selling and are honored to be working on such a prestigious project."
Interiors include ceiling heights up to 14 feet, expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, central entrance galleries with sweeping, on-axis views to the north and south, white macauba stone floor at entry, and custom details throughout including smoke-gray solid oak floors with intricate pattern in the Great Hall and interior doors with bronze door hardware by P.E. Guerin. The kitchens, designed by Studio Sofield, are handcrafted by Mark Wilkinson for Smallbone of Devizes and available in dark or light hand-rubbed plaster or chateau gray oak finish. Master bathrooms feature walls and floors finished in veined white onyx and Studio Sofield designed bronze fixtures cast by P.E. Guerin. Fourteen singular residences will be available in the landmarked Steinway Hall building.
