111 West 57th Street is a supertall residential project in New York. The development will be a combination of the landmarked 1925 Steinway Building and a new tower adjacent by SHoP architects. The building will rise to be 1,438 ft (438 m) and is set to become the most slender building in the world with a width-to-height ratio of 1:23. Photograph - Michael Toolan
