Visual shows supertall skyscraper designed by OMA for New York’s Billionaire’s Row

OMA supertall

A render produced by architecture firm OMA depicts a new supertall skyscraper proposed for 41-47 West 57th Street on New York‘s Billionaire’s Row.

The mixed-use high-rise, which is at the centre of the visual, would be 1,100 feet high (335 metres) and overlook Central Park in Midtown Manhattan, local pro-development publication YIMBY reported.

Plans submitted to the New York City Department of Buildings outline a wedge-shaped 63-storey skyscraper that would house 119 residential units, a 158-room hotel and restaurant, and almost 206,000 square feet (19,000 square metres) of commercial space.

Developer Sedesco is also reportedly seeking a zoning authorisation for more floor space than initially approved for the site.

In return for over 52,000 more square footage (4,830 square metres), Sedesco would make improvements to the elevators for 57th Street’s F train subway station.

This is part of New York’s Zoning for Accessibility program, a new scheme announced in April 2021 where the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) can offer incentives to private developers looking to build near stations in return for accessibility improvements made during construction.

Supertall would join Billionaire’s Row

OMA hasn’t released any information about the as-yet-unnamed supertall skyscraper for 41-47 West 57th Street.

If built, the high rise would join several other supertall buildings on Billionaire’s Row, the nickname given to the cluster of residential skyscrapers cropping up at the southern end of Central Park on or near 57th Street.

Several of these towers are included in the OMA render, including the already completed 953-feet-high (290 metres) 220 Central Park South by Robert AM Stern and 111 West 57th Street, a 1,421 feet (433 metres) super-skinny supertall by SHoP Architects due to complete later this year.

Central Park Tower, a 1,550-foot (472-metre) supertall by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill is also nearing completion on Billionaire’s Row and is set to become the tallest residential building in the world.

The Rafael Viñoly-designed supertall skyscraper 432 Park Avenue, which made headlines earlier this year after residents complained of floods and elevator problems, is also on Billionaire’s Row.

Recent projects in and around New York by OMA include a pair of residential towers on the waterfront in Brooklyn and plans for the first US outpost of The Centre Pompidou in Jersey City.
