Soon to be the tallest residential building in Manhattan standing at 1,550 feet tall, Central Park Tower, at the corner of Broadway between 57th and 58th Streets, will boast amazing helicopter Central Park and NYC views when completed in 2020.
Sales are yet to get underway, but we expect sales to launch in early 2018. With a sellout of $4 billion, this will undoubtedly be one of the most expensive condo buildings in the world, with an average price per square foot in the original Schedule A pricing in the offering plan of $7,106. Twenty of the condo units will be priced at $60 million or more, but there are also some studio apartments priced at $1.6 million. We are not sure if these studios will be sold separately or only to buyer who buy expensive units on the higher floors to be used for staff or when the mother in-law visits.
The architect of Central Park Tower is Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, which has a lot of experience designing supertalls, having designed the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building located in Dubai. Extellis developing the building and has a lot of experience in this space having started Billionaire’s row on 57th St, with the introduction of One57, the 1,004-foot tower that sits one avenue due East of Central Park Tower between 6th and 7th Avenues.
Also known as the Nordstrom Tower, the building will house the flagship luxury department store on its first 7 stories. In addition, plans call for hotel on floors 8 thru 12 with condos on the upper floors. Condo amenities will include a grand ballroom on the 100th floor, able to seat 126 people, a landscaped terrace with a 60’ pool and an indoor pool on the 16th floor.
When completed, Central Park Tower will usurp 432 Park as the tallest building in NYC by 51 feet. It will also rise 50% higher than 220 Central Park South, the new 953 foot Robert A. M. Stern tower that lies directly north of the building and One57. While there is surely to be some strange interactions between these two buildings being so close together (220 CPS lies due north of the building and Central Park Tower cantilevers over the Art Students League), the top half of the building will have the best views in the city.
