Central Park Tower rising between the Empire State Building and One57 (Extell Development Marketing) Central Park Tower rising between the Empire State Building and One57 (Extell Development Marketing)
Earlier today, developers Extell Development and SMI USA officially announced the start of sales for Central Park Tower, a 1,550-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper rising near the southern end of Central Park. As One57's big, big sister, the tower will hold the highest apartments in the world, besting both 432 Park Avenue a few blocks east, and Burj Khalifa, the world's current tallest building overall.
As one would expect, the views are billed to be "endless." A newly-released fly-through film shows the indisputable dominance the tower will have over Midtown Manhattan. Residents will enjoy panoramas stretching river-to-river, harbor-to-ocean that encompass all of the city's necklaced suspension bridges to Central Park rolled out before you.

“Central Park Tower was designed to take advantage of the spirit of the great city of New York and create an address worthy of its location on Billionaires Row and Central Park.” -Gordon Gill of AS+GG

The simple glass shaft is designed by the tall building experts at Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG). Now wrapped in a protective coating, the reflective facade will be accented with satin-finished stainless steel, and light-catching elements said to highlight the interplay of texture and light. The project is already known for its daring cantilever that hovers 300 feet above the landmarked Art Students League. The engineering feat is to better lend north-facing apartments unimpeded views of the park. The tower, in addition to 111 West 57th Street (which the team conveniently leaves out of the imagery), will balance out the skyline when viewed from Central Park and take some attention away from 432 Park Avenue, which some have derided as a sore thumb.
With frontages along Broadway, West 57th, and West 58th Street, CPT's podium will be anchored by a 320,000-square-foot, seven-floor Nordstrom flagship store. Above will be some of the 50,000 square feet of luxury services and amenities that comprise the Central Park Club. It includes a fitness center, basketball court, regulation squash court, 63-foot-long indoor pool, spa and children’s playroom. There will also be a 60-foot outdoor pool, central lawn, two gardens, and a ballroom on the 100th floor.

The residences will begin 32 stories above street level to ensure every apartment has a view across the city. Refined by Rottet Studio, the 179 homes will come in two- to eight-bedroom layouts and include a yet-to-be-seen 17,500-square-foot penthouse. According to Extell, the units will be “strategically positioned in the corners of the residences to maximize multiple panoramas and citywide views.” Doing away with massive super-columns impeding rooms and corners, Central Park Tower's structural elements will be tucked between apartments, resulting in more free-flowing layouts and unencumbered views.
Also in the release, the team presented the first official interior rendering. It depicts a compact open kitchen with a marble island and floor-to-ceiling windows with Central Park views beyond.
One57, Extell's last 'Billionaires' Row' venture, yielded the city's priciest-ever apartment sale, a $100.5 million six-bedroom scooped up by tech billionaire Michael Dell. With Central Park Tower's projected FOUR-BILLION-DOLLAR sellout, all bets are on that this will top the Christian de Portzamparc-designed predecessor. Vornado's 220 Central Park South, finishing construction across the street from the building, was reported in 2015 to have signed a $250 million contract. Central Park Tower will likely top out construction early next year and closings are expected to begin in late 2019.
