In addition, 111 West is the second tallest building in the Western Hemisphere
April 8, 2022
In New York, a new skyscraper has appeared on the so-called “Billionaires Street” in Midtown Manhattan. Its creators & nbsp; – the bureau SHoP Architects & nbsp; – broke two records at once. 111 West became the second tallest building in the Western Hemisphere (435 meters) and the thinnest skyscraper in the world (the ratio of the height and width of the building is 24:1).
Skyscraper 111 West began to be built back in 2013, but after 4 years, construction stopped for financial reasons. Now the tower is ready for occupancy: the most privileged residents are waiting here, so there is only one apartment on each floor of the building. =”/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/7996963f51518a63f817736dd4932f4c.jpg” width=”728″ height=”552″ class=”lazy-image__image _align-center” data-v-64ca9b5a=”1″ alt=”B The thinnest skyscraper in the world was completed in New York” />The 111 West skyscraper stands near Central Park.
“As New Yorkers, we are incredibly pleased that we were able to create another landmark project that has become part of the visual panorama of our city,” comments SHoP Architects, “We sought to change the idea of what a skyscraper could be.”
Of course, the building is not ultra-narrow at its base: its structure narrows gradually, and at the very top the width of the house reaches only a few meters.
111 West is the world's thinnest skyscraper.
The residential complex 111 West turned out to be remarkable not only in terms of its architecture, but also in terms of comfort. So, for example, future residents are offered their own fitness club with a swimming pool and a terrace and other services. =”/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/5b825a6e3e80a2c6c02da2758073f728.jpg” width=”728″ height=”481″ class=”lazy-image__image _align-center” data-v-64ca9b5a=”1″ alt=”B The thinnest skyscraper in the world was completed in New York” />The skyscraper will be residential – there is an apartment on each floor.
