By the time 2020 hits, the Chrysler Building, the worlds first supertall will lose its top 100 streak after nearly 90 years

Two Supertalls Top Out in New York City


The Grand Central Terminal-adjacent supertall One Vanderbilt officially topped out this week, reaching its full 1,401-foot (427-meter) height. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, the tower is now Midtown’s tallest office building and the fourth-tallest skyscraper in New York City. One Vanderbilt, developed by SL Green, measures 1.7 million square feet (157,935 square meters) and boasts a unique terra-cotta façade, as well as the fourth-highest observation deck in the city.

The $3.3 billion tower takes up an entire block bounded by Madison and Vanderbilt Avenues to the west and east, and East 43rd and East 42nd Streets to the north and south.

This has been a significant week, and summer, for One Vanderbilt. The speed of construction is unprecedented for modern office towers in New York City, and compares to the Empire State Building’s completion nearly 90 years ago. :cheers:

And in the same week, along “Billionaires’ Row”—as 57th Street in Midtown Manhattan is nicknamed— a ceremony in the concrete shell of a duplex on the 107th floor feted the topping out of Central Park Tower, which is 131 stories and 1,550 feet (472 meters) high.

The project is designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, a firm committed to the design of high-performance, energy-efficient and striking architecture. Central Park Tower’s façade features combined elements of glass, satin-finished stainless steel, and light-catching vertical and horizontal details that accentuate the interplay of texture and light. At 300 feet (91 meters) from the street, the tower cantilevers to the east, creating Central Park views for all north-facing residences.

Developer Extell secured the right to build Central Park Tower by buying 6,000 square feet (557 square meters) of “air rights” from surrounding buildings. Its 1,550-foot height makes it even taller than One World Trade Center without its crowning spire.

The building’s 179 two- to eight-bedroom apartments, which went on sale last fall and start on the 32nd floor, start at $6.9 million. The most expensive unit currently available is a five-bedroom on the 112th floor asking $63 million. The apartments are designed by Rottet Studio.

The priciest condos—like a three-floor penthouse—are speculated to sell for more than $100 million.

Central Park Tower is slated to be complete in 2020, when the first closings will take place.

The taller tower is Madison Square Park Tower, designed by KPF.

The shorter tower is One Madison, designed by Cetra Ruddy.

Tall, Green and Smart
How building system innovations and technologies are making New York City's supertall buildings more attractive places to work

Franco Faraudo
December 8, 2019


“New York City is a very unique market.” This might seem like an obvious statement but most people have no idea how true it is. Ryan Baxter, PropTech Advisor for the New York State Energy and Research and Development Authority (or NYSERDA), it into context as the moderator of a panel at our Building the Future event last month.

“The largest owner of real estate is the city of New York and their annual budget is larger than the next 19 largest U.S. cities combined.” It isn’t just the city’s active (at times hyper-active) role in the real estate landscape that sets the market apart from any other in the world. “Our midtown office market has windowless basement space that rents for more than the top of the Willis Tower in Chicago,” Ryan explained.


The density of office stock that New York has been able to achieve while still remaining a sought out a place to vacation and live is second to none. It has done this by thinking big, or in this case tall. While Chicago might be considered the birthplace of the idea of the skyscraper, New York City is where it was honed. Even now, after the tallest building in the world fever has settled down for all but the remaining few dictators looking to make a statement, midtown Manhattan continues to set records with its innovative “supertall” buildings.


The kind of density that makes New York City unique might actually be a glimpse of the future of many cities around the world. The technologies and techniques that are being used in some of New York’s frighteningly slender new additions to the skyline are likely similar to what will be adopted by the larger built world soon.


.....New York’s office market is certainly unique. But it may not always be. As the global economy slips further into the information age and turns towards cities as generators of productivity we might see other cities resemble New York’s crown jewel. Idiosyncrasies that now seem isolated to a bustling metropolis like Manhattan could become standard in other smaller cities as they march down the path of progress. Learning how certain forward-thinking real estate firms are dealing with development in the city will certainly give valuable lessons for others to use in their own markets in the coming years.
