111 West-57th Street: The Skinniest Skyscraper in the World

Skyscrapers come in all shapes and sizes. One such skyscraper that stands out due to its design and thinness is 111 West 57th Street. This is a unique tower whose appearance and proportions break the conventional mold, earning it the distinction of being the thinnest skyscraper in the world.


With a width-to-height ratio of 1:23, 111 West 57th Street is taller than it is wide. The building stands at 1,428 feet, making it a true icon on the New York City skyline. As a testament to its design, the building has won numerous awards and accolades, including “Best Tall Building in the Americas” from the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

What is even more impressive is the attention given to the percentage of the draft that is estimated to be unique. This means that not only does 111 West 57th Street stand out in appearance, but also in craftsmanship. The team behind the tower made sure to employ only the best technologies and materials available to make it a reality. With such a commitment to excellence, it is no surprise that this building is one of a kind.

The creativity and talent behind the project come from numerous firms, including SHoP Architects and JDS Development Group. The design of the building is inspired by the classic New York City towers of the early 20th century, and it is a wonder to behold. The tower is also notable for its use of glass and bronze paneling that gives it a unique and modern aesthetic.

The scale and design of the tower’s interiors are also impressive. Each apartment is custom designed to maximize space and provide incredible views of the city. The building’s top floors feature duplex penthouses that offer panoramic views of New York City with double-height windows that look out over Central Park.
