Park Hyatt at One 57

Rooms with views in one of Manhattan’s tallest residential buildings

One 57 is one of Manhattan’s tallest residential buildings and one of the most desirable addresses in New York City. The 306 m (1,005 ft) tower includes luxurious condominiums and the new flagship Park Hyatt Hotel, which occupies the first 18 storeys of the building. The hotel’s 210 guest rooms, including 92 luxury suites, are among the most spacious in New York.

The structural design had to accommodate the many requirements of the building users, with the best possible layouts for apartments and for the hotel, including a triple-height swimming pool at the top of the hotel.

We incorporated the latest innovations in high-rise structural engineering to successfully meet numerous challenges. Our design had to manage the requirements of the L-shaped site and the upper stories were set back in keeping with Manhattan zoning laws that limited the area of buildings at higher levels. The most advanced high-performance concrete was specified for the shear walls and columns to support the tower’s slenderness and unique shape. A liquid damping system was used to mitigate lateral movement.
