The Carnegie Hall Tower is a 60-story skyscraper in the 57th Street Midtown Manhattan . Together with the Metropolitan Tower and the CitySpire Center , which are in the immediate vicinity, it forms a high-rise network that was built in the late 1980s. The 306 meter high One57 has been in the immediate vicinity since 2014 .

The tower houses offices and extensions to the famous Carnegie Hall . Due to its narrow width of only 15 meters, the 231 meter high skyscraper appears very narrow. César Pelli , the architect of the building, designed a cladding of bricks and glazed bricks, taking up the style of the old Carnegie Hall. This means that the tower blends in very well with its surroundings. The entire building was constructed using reinforced concrete .
