The incredible prices of the luxury apartments of the Steinway Tower in New York, the thinnest skyscraper in the world
From these stunning apartments the owners have views over Central Park, the Empire State building and most of New York City.
If you want the most incredible views over New York from an exquisite apartment you’ll want to be living in the Steinway Tower, the thinnest skyscraper in the Big Apple, and one with an utterly privileged location on Billionaire’s Row in Midtown Manhattan. But get ready to splash the cash, because the apartments cost from $7.5 million all the way up to an eye-watering $66 million.
Eight years after groundwork started, the 91-story skyscraper, known as 111 West 57th Street is finally ready and the first owners will be moving in for this Christmas. As part of the project the original Steinway Hall has been restored, while the new tower created by SHoP Architects offers bespoke interiors by Studio Sofield. Each floor of the tower houses one single residence.
The skyscraper stands 1,427 feet tall (the Empire State building is 1,250 feet), and cost $2 billion to construct. It has a height to width ratio of 1:24, making it the world’s thinnest skyscraper.
Original works of art by Picasso and Matisse will make simply visiting the lobby of the Steinway Tower an art-lovers dream.
A new architectural icon for New York
The new building brings together the best of New York City’s pre-war Golden Age of architectural design with the best of today’s contemporary creativity in design, engineering and construction innovation.
“It's practically calligraphic, it will shine on the horizon, thanks to a genuinely opulent exterior finished in terracotta and bronze,” says Justin Davidson of New York Magazine.
Incredible design throughout the Steinway Tower
“We’ve all been to very luxurious places, but I wanted to create a building that couldn’t be anywhere else in the world. I know that there are many people who can have several houses, who will have apartments here. And I wanted to create a very different experience that you could only have in New York,” Studio Sofield founder William Sofield told CNN.
The most expensive home costs $66 million, a 7,130 square foot two-storey home, with an additional outdoor loggia. The cheapest apartment available in the skyscraper costs $7 million, offering 2,580 square feet of luxury living.
The views from the loggia are out of this world.

All the amenities in the heart of New York
The building includes a 25-meter swimming pool, set in a light-filled space with floor-to-ceiling windows and a row of Kentia palm trees, plus wood paneling and gold accents in the changing rooms and bathrooms.
There's also a modern take on New York's legendary King Cole Bar, complete with an ornate balcony and gold-and-silver murals.
The Steinway Tower also offers private dining rooms with a catering kitchen, a golf simulator and a landscaped terrace, along with reception service 24 hours a day and a concierge who will attend to the requests of the residents as if they were living in a hotel.
