Final Demolition Underway For SOM’s 12 West 57th Street in Midtown, Manhattan

Published by on

Demolition is underway on the final two buildings at 12 West 57th Street, the site of a 672-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and developed by Solow Management Corp., the tower will rise along Billionaires’ Row between Fifth and Sixth Avenues and West 56th and 57th Streets.

Little exterior progress was evident between our last update in December 2021 and the past few weeks, when the remaining two structures on the western end of the parcel were covered with scaffolding and black netting. Interior gutting had been progressing over the past year, but it appears that the mid-rise buildings will now begin to be razed to street level. YIMBY expects that this process will conclude before the end of summer.
