Billionaires' Row is widely understood to mean one particular stretch of Midtown West that went from schlocky souvenir shops to some of the most expensive real estate on the planet, to paraphrase The Wall Street Journal. The close proximity to Central Park, Fifth Avenue shopping, and central business districts were key selling points early on; as time passed, the new buildings sought to outdo each other in terms of height, interiors, amenities, and prices. Moreover, as executives and celebrities began moving into the new condo towers, their cachet rose almost as high as their elevation.

The construction cranes on the supertalls have all come down; and, to walk up 57th Street from Park Avenue to Broadway, one would assume the area's transformation is complete. However, there are still development sites to be found along this stretch. We look at the buildings that best exemplify Billionaires' Row, as well as new projects in the works.

Developed by Gamma Real Estate and JVP Management | Design by Stephen B. Jacobs Group
62 stories | 121 condos | Completed in 2022
16 availabilities from $1,975,000 - $21,000,000

430 East 58th Street (Pandisco Green)
While much shorter than the nearly 1,000-foot-tall tower originally planned for the site, Sutton Tower is nevertheless the tallest building in its Sutton Place enclave. The height is in line with today's luxury expectations, as are the apartment interiors and amenities, but a limestone facade and Art Deco-inspired crown pay respectful tribute to prewar architecture.

35 stories | 67 condos | Completed in 2018
16 availabilities from $1,745,000 - $42,500,000

200 East 59th Street
Located at the nexus of the Upper East Side, Midtown East, and Billionaires' Row, 200 East 59th Street is surrounded by bands of balconies that offer outdoor space to every unit. Interiors feature airy layouts, open-plan kitchens, spa-like baths, and high ceilings that rise to lofty levels as the building gets higher.

63 stories | 94 condos | Completed in 2018
11 availabilities from $1,850,000 - $9,750,000

100 East 53rd Street
While located somewhat east of Billionaires' Row proper, Selene brings a towering height, architectural pedigree, and views and interiors to rival those of its neighbors to the west. It attracted the attention of power couples like George and Amal Clooney and Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford, not to mention Le Jardinier, a restaurant conceived by Michelin-star chef Alain Verzeroli. Residents enjoy special seating and dining privileges, not to mention an array of wellness and social amenities.

Developed by Macklowe Group and CIM Group | Design by Rafael Viñoly
96 stories | 104 condos | Completed in 2015
15 availabilities from $5,750,000 - $130,000,000

432 Park Avenue
When 432 Park Avenue was completed in the mid-2010s, it was the tallest building in the world. It has been outstripped in height by some of its neighbors to the west, but nothing has come along to compare to its minimalist design. High ceilings and oversized windows give every unit an airy, light-filled atmosphere. Amenities include a fitness center, 75-foot lap pool, porte-cochere, and private restaurant run by a Michelin-starred chef.

54 stories | 35 condos | Completed in 2018
3 availabilities from $18,500,000 - $28,500,000

520 Park Avenue
Before Billionaires' Row took Manhattan by storm, the Upper East Side was widely considered the bastion of New York's wealthiest. 520 Park Avenue took shape on the border of both worlds, and this comes through in the design: Its towering height nods to the supertalls to the west, and its limestone facade and romantic roofline pay tribute to prewar architecture. The simplex and duplex units allow for incredible privacy and space.

730 Fifth Avenue
Developed by OKO Group | Design by Denniston
26 stories | 22 condos | Completed in 1921 | Converted in 2021
2 availabilities from $20,300,000 - $47,000,000

730 Fifth Avenue
Nearly 100 years after The Crown Building was completed, developers announced plans to restore its architecture to its original glory while turning the interiors into Aman Resorts' first New York outpost with condos starting on the 11th floor. Residents reach their apartments through a separate entrance, but enjoy access to the hotel's three-story spa, jazz club, piano bar, and gourmet restaurants.

29 availabilities from $1,295,000 - $50,000,000

1 Central Park South
Hotels getting partially converted to residential has gained some momentum in recent years, but The Plaza served as a trailblazer. Residents arrive at the landmarked building through a separate entrance, but arrive to the hotel's iconic lobby. They also enjoy access to the amenities and services, not to mention close proximity to Central Park and some of Manhattan's most rarefied shopping.

53 West 53rd Street
Developed by Hines | Design by Jean Nouvel
82 stories | 145 condos | Completed in 2020
15 availabilities from $3,355,000 - $46,395,000

53 West 53rd Street
When 53W53 was still on the drawing board, the City Planning Commission ordered the planned height of 1,250 feet to be reduced. That does not appear to be to the detriment of the Pritzker Prize laureate's design, though - it makes a dramatic statement both in the skyline and above the Museum of Modern Art. Interiors by Thierry Despont are distinguished by bespoke detailing, high-quality finishes, and sophisticated infrastructure.

111 West 56th Street
Developed by GFI Development | Interiors by Thomas Juul-Hansen
41 stories | 99 condos | Completed in 1939 | Converted in 2023
10 availabilities from $1,195,000 - $16,950,000

111 West 56th Street
The tone of Billionaires' Row has shifted on the hospitality front as well as the residential one: In November 2021, the Thompson Central Park Hotel opened in a building that once housed the Parker New York and Le Parker Meridien hotels. The top floors have been devoted to condos that make the most of Central Park and skyline views, and residents have access to the hotel's concierge, fitness center, and Upper Stories lounge.

ONE11 Residences, #PHA (Douglas Elliman Real Estate)

Developed by JDS and Property Markets Group | Design by SHoP Architects
91 stories | 60 condos | Completed in 2022
8 availabilities from $8,495,000 - $54,600,000

111 West 57th Street
While 111 West 57th Street comes in just shy of the tallest residential building in New York, it holds the distinction of the world's skinniest skyscraper with a slenderness ratio of 1:23. The development has two components: the svelte new tower with its full-floor units, and the restored and landmarked Steinway Hall with authentic loft homes. All residents have access to a luxurious amenity package.

157 West 57th Street
Developed by Extell | Design by Christian de Portzamparc
90 stories | 92 condos | Completed in 2014
12 availabilities from $3,325,000 - $26,000,000

157 West 57th Street
Between its towering height, open views of the Manhattan skyline and Central Park, and luxury amenities, One57 established itself as the standard to which all future Billionaires' Row condos must aspire to. The apartments are located on top of the five-star Park Hyatt hotel; not only do residents enjoy access to the hotel's amenities and services, but the building offers an array of exclusive residential amenities.

217 West 57th Street
Developed by Extell | Design by Adrian Smith
98 stories | 179 condos | Completed in 2021
16 availabilities from $6,500,000 - $195,000,000

217 West 57th Street
At this point, it is hard to say what Central Park Tower has become most famous for: its status as the tallest apartment building in the Western Hemisphere; being home to New York's first Nordstrom flagship; its luxury amenity package; or its apartments with panoramic views, spectacular finishes, and equally jaw-dropping prices.

70 stories | 118 condos | Completed in 2019
3 availabilities from $13,650,000 - $34,500,000

220 Central Park South
On a stretch largely dominated by glassy supertalls (see above), the still-towering 220 Central Park South is set apart by its graceful limestone facade. Classic influences on modern desires inform the apartments and amenities as well. A $238,000,000 sale in the building from 2019 remains the most expensive in the United States, and it has racked up some of the top sales of 2023.

Developed by Rybak Development | Design by ZPROEKT
21 stories | 23 condos | Completion estimated for 2026

660 Lexington Avenue (Rybak Development)
In December 2021, Rybak Development acquired a corner Midtown development site for $24.4 million (per Acris) in what was one of the area's first development deals since the height of the pandemic. At the time, the area was zoned just for commercial or hospitality. However, plans for a 23-unit residential building were filed in 2022. Most recently, an Instagram post dubbing the forthcoming project "the jewel of Midtown" depicted a rendering of a new building with a light stone facade, oversized windows, and setback terraces.

Developed by MRR Development | Design by ODA
28 stories | 147 condos | Completion estimated for 2025

126 East 57th Street
At a planned 346-foot height, 126 East 57th Street is downright petite compared to the nearby 432 Park Avenue and other supertalls to the west. However, none of them have anything like the creative massing of this new condo that will make for an eye-catching new building at street level and unique layouts inside. Nearly every unit in the "pixelated" building will have its own private outdoor space, and common amenities are set to include a landscaped courtyard, fitness center, indoor sports court, indoor pool, sauna and steam room, party lounge with prep kitchen, and roof terrace. Work is underway.

Developed by Soloviev Group | Design by Skidmore Owings & Merrill
52 stories | 80 condos | Completion estimated for 2027

8 West 57th Street
As of this writing, developer Soloviev Group has been in the headlines for sweetening their casino proposal with the promise of affordable homes along with it near the United Nations headquarters. However, their attention is still on a site near their 57th Street headquarters, where plans for a new building call for retail on floors 1-4, hotel rooms on floors 5-9, and residential units (most likely condos) on floors 11-50. But between building the assemblage (which includes the original Henri Bendel building), a notable holdout, and the pandemic-induced lockdown, it has been slow going.

Developed by Sedesco | Design by OMA
63 stories | 119 condos | Completion estimated for 2028

41-47 West 57th Street
Plans for a new tower at 41-47 West 57th Street date back to 2012, when developer Sedesco began building the assemblage of low-rise buildings. A whimsical design by Mark Foster Gage Architects was proposed at one point, but Rem Koolhaas' OMA ultimately became the architect of record. The new tower is set to contain 119 residences, 158 hotel rooms, and approximately 10,000 square feet for a restaurant. Moreover, as part of the Zoning for Accessibility program, the developer is set to build two new elevators to the 57th Street F train in exchange for extra floor space.

125 West 57th Street

Developed by Alchemy-ABR Investment Partners and Cain International | Design by FXCollaborative
26 stories | Completion estimated for 2025

125 West 57th Street
In 2017, Calvary Baptist Church sold their building between 111 West 57th Street and One57 to developers of a new office building for $150 million. As part of the deal, they will occupy modern new worship space in the base of the building. Workers at the upper-level offices are set to enjoy expansive floor plates, high ceilings, and sweeping views of Central Park.

31 West 57th Street

Developed by LeFrak Organization | Design by Skidmore Owings & Merrill
Completion TBD

31 West 57th Street
Sadly, the growth of new towers on 57th Street has meant the demolition of some of the city's historic architecture. Among it was the longtime home of Rizzoli Bookstore, which took shape in the former Sohmer Piano Building. Preservationists fought to have its Italian interiors landmarked, but to no avail as the development team announced grand plans for a "seven-star hotel" to take shape on the site. However, the bookstore might have gotten the last laugh: It is doing bustling business in NoMad while the site still stands empty.

1 East 57th Street

Developed by LVMH | Designer TBD
Completion TBD

1 East 57th Street
Louis Vuitton's New York flagship is currently leasing retail space at 6 East 57th Street, but not for much longer: In spring 2023, the New York Post announced that luxury conglomerate Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey (LVMH), inspired by Tiffany and Rolex, is planning a new flagship office and retail building for 57th Street. The project is still in very early stages (they were said to be interviewing "starchitects"), but both LVMH's current building at 1 East 57th Street and the nearby 743 Fifth Avenue would have to be demolished to make way for it.
