111 W. 57th St.

The highly anticipated 111 W. 57th St. condo, on Billionaire’s Row, launched sales last week, with prices from $18 million to over $57 million. It ends a rocky few years for the under-construction luxury project, including lawsuits accusing developers JDS and Property Markets Group (PMG) of diluting the stake of an equity partner, and infighting that disrupted a previous sales effort. At a launch event, developers distanced the tower, which has made headlines for its slender silhouette, from the drama.

JDS, PMG and Spruce Capital Partners — along with SHoP Architects and William Sofield’s Studio Sofield — at last presented a model of the 1,428-foot tower rising above landmarked Steinway Hall. There will be 46 full-floor and duplex homes; interiors feature great rooms with 14-foot ceilings, marbled bathrooms and floor-to-ceiling windows. Building amenities include a lap pool with cabanas, a private dining room and a triple-height gym.

Williams NY

Renowned architecture firm Beyer Blinder Belle, known for restoring classic NYC landmarks, has applied its craft to a new condo next to the historic Park Avenue Christian Church with 11 full-floor and duplex residences. Extell is behind the development, expected to launch sales later this fall, with prices starting at $12.95 million and a penthouse duplex promising a whopping price tag.

Lavish amenities include a 50-foot indoor pool, a fitness center with a teak sauna and changing rooms, a screening room and a circus-themed children’s playroom.
