Uncovered by New York YIMBY, five new images have been revealed showing SHoP Architects' supertall and super-slender tower at 111 West 57th Street in Manhattan, just south of Central Park on what has become known as "Billionaire's Row" (on account of the slew of new residential skyscrapers with some unit prices approaching $100 million).

The new images come at the same time as the launch of the development's teaser site, which confirms the building's eventual height of 1428 feet (468 meters) and features an appropriately tall and thin comparing its height to other well-known buildings - everything from relatively minute historical structures such as the Taj Mahal and the Eiffel Tower, to the building's local rivals the Empire State Building and 432 Park Avenue.

The new images show the building's interiors for the first time, including the uninterrupted views across Central Park from the the uppermost floors of the 80-story building.

Completion is currently expected for 2017, when the building may or may not be Manhattan's tallest residential building - depending on the outcome of its race with the nearby Nordstrom Tower.
