About One57

One 57 is the first in a series of supertall residential towers rising along 57th street in Manhattan. These towers take advantage of views of Central Park by securing air rights from neighboring buildings. The building has a design of dark and light glass on the facade to create vertical stripes to manipulate sunlight and maximizing views.
