Why The World’s Tallest Apartment Buildings Are On The Same NYC Street | Architectural Digest

  • čas přidán 24. 07. 2023
  • Today architect Nick Potts joins AD in New York City for an in-depth walking tour of Billionaires’ Row in Midtown Manhattan. West 57th Street has been attracting Manhattan’s wealthiest residents for centuries-a former amalgamation of brownstone and gothic mansions in the 1800s, the street has evolved into a hotspot for supertall luxury skyscrapers boasting the three tallest residential buildings in the world. Join Nick as he deep-dives into the area’s rich history and explains why Billionaires’ Row could only be built on 57th Street.

      They are basically all the same, floor-to-ceiling windows, the odd column painted white, and either marble or parquet floors, likely with no furniture, since the units primarily serve as speculative investments, or somewhere tangible to park or launder money.

    The triplex in Central Park Tower is an incredible tour. It's the most amazing thing I've ever seen. 17,000 sq feet, 45' high winding staircase, private 3 floor elevator, 1441 sq ft balcony, ginormous ballroom, commercial kitchen for ballroom, etc. It's unreal.

    Love this video, very interesting to hear about the history, the architectural styles and the background. It's probably because where I am living in Kuala Lumpur on the 45th floor of a tall (not super tall) residential building called Le Nouvel, overlooking the KLCC park in Kuala Lumpur (not Central Park, I know). I just love living on these high floors, with the fantastic views day and night and their challenging constructions and architecture. Nice!

    It took me a while to understand why Architect Nick was looking down at the camera, and it was just so we could see the building 😅
    But my favorite part was Architect Nick being all happy about being part of the 111 building and taking us inside the windbreak floor.

    Wow what an amazing video. I love how he explains enough detail but in simple language. Thanks for such an awesome video on these (to me nutty) buildings. But I wish he would have explained how in the world the Central Park Tower was able to build OVER the top of another building? Does that mean they would have had to buy the other building to get the air rights?

  • Peter G. Miller
    Peter G. Miller Před 2 měsíci +2

    This video is very well done. As tall as these buildings are -- and with all the new technology -- I wish Mr. Potts had talked about the issue of sway. How much do these buildings sway on a typical day? What happens in a hurricane? Or, is there no sway as a result of the open floors?

    I can appreciate these modern buildings but I can’t wrap my head around how someone can feel comfortable living at these heights daily 😮 🤯 I guess that’s the least of your concerns with a life that gives you access to these spaces….

    • Cory Hagen
      Cory Hagen Před 2 měsíci +4

      The funny part is that at that height it just feels like you’re looking down at ants on the ground. I get wobbly on a fourth floor balcony, but on the 57th floor? It feels different. If you ever get the chance, visit a rooftop bar or restaurant and test it out.

    I really love these buildings, they look like something out of scifi. I dont care if these are unaffordable, literally all of the affluent neighborhoods in most cities like nyc, boston etc are unaffordable and everyone loves the brownstone. I can't afford either of them so I'm not going to get jealous and compain.

    Judging by the comments section, I'm in the minority, but I love the architecture of these buildings. They look sleek and futuristic, and they're great editions to the NYC skyline. What I don't love is how they're only apartments for the ludicrously, extravagantly wealthy.

      i agree, i've always had the thought that any "uniquely tall building" should have a public access roof or view point. mostly just out of the desire to experience those views for a moment.

    • Annonymously
      Annonymously Před 2 měsíci +27

      Yeah, they look far better than the office buildings that were so prevalent back in the 80s. Personally, I don’t see the problem with these towers housing wealthy people. After all, affordable housing could never be built in that location and supertalls take up less land area

    • SMW83
      SMW83 Před 2 měsíci +13

    • Annonymously
      Annonymously Před 2 měsíci +5

      @SMW83 Actually it depends. The buildings with limestone facades (like 220 Central Park south) are lived in because more local buyers buy into those while the buildings with glassy facades have more foreign buyers

    Interesting video/presentation. Personal opinion and everyone is entitled to theirs, 432 visually is super uninspiring.

    It's a very nice video, but there is one mistake. @1:30, you defined a supertall as a building over 1,000 ft. This is not correct. A supertall is a building that is 300 meters or taller but less than 600 meters. 300 meters is equal to 984 ft, not 1,000 ft. For example, at 996 ft, One Manhattan West at 401 Ninth Avenue is a supertall, despite not being over 1,000 ft.

      You're using metrics, which is not used as much in the US. Therefore, the gentleman is correct when he states that supertalls begin at 1,000 ft and up. This was the case in Chicago, where I used to live, and is the case in New York, where I reside presently. One Manhattan West, which I pass by nearly everyday, does not make the grade of a supertall, no matter how much they bluster this building as being one. It's just another tall tower in Manhattan.

      @LUIS Definition is definition. You can't modify a definition simply because it's in metric system. You can convert meters to feet easily like what I did by saying 300 meters is 984 feet.

    Why the rich of belle époque didn’t fight for conservation of their neighbourhood? So sad to see those mansions demolished.

      The Great Depression wipped alot of them out. They couldn't afford those massive houses anymore.

    More housing is needed world-wide. The most economical and logical way is density. This idea should be incorporated wherever it makes sense. Urban sprawl is not logical and is very expensive to maintain.
