When completed, 111 West 57th Street will tower over New York City’s Central Park. At a height of 1,421 feet and a height-to-width ratio of 24:1, the SHoP Architects-designed residential building will hold the title of world’s skinniest skyscraper.

However, it may no longer be a matter of when the tower is completed, but if it is completed. After rising just 20 stories, construction on 111 West 57th Street has ground to a halt due to ballooning costs.
