I find it interesting that CPT, 220 CPS, and 111 W 57th all have basically forgone having web listings of units. I guess that is the state of billionaire real estate. I don't think I've seen a single public listing for any of them yet.

Haven't been back to NYC for 5 years, I only drove through the city today on the way to Massachusetts so I grabbed some quick photos of the skyline.

I think CPT was doing something in-house with Extell. Steinway hasn't really gone public yet (officially), but there are a limited number of units there. Vornado's 220 CPS has been selling for a while now.

Is CPT's sales gallery going to be in One57? I just saw its new logo in the window adjacent to the One57 lobby. Have been staying at the JW Marriot Essex House since Thursday. Have to say, it's a sight to see CPT, Steinway, and 220 CPS rising together in the sky. Even with ugly One57 in the view. The views from 6th Ave and 58th street are phenomenal. You can even see Verre in the other direction. I hadn't been in New York since these towers have all really started to make their presences felt in the sky. I bet the rooms facing 6th Avenue at that new hotel 1 Hotel Central Park will have amazing views of these towers when they are finished. https://www.1hotels.com/central-park Cool hotel too. Next time I'm in, I will have to check it out and stay there.

Yeah, right...a shame that this is the tallest and not Verre. I walked by Verre yesterday and another 200 ft that would have set it free from the shackles of adjacent buildings and its top portion clearly visible from all angles when walking around would have look amazing.

That's very possible with Extell.

I think it’s got to be. No other reason for it to be there. It’s not yet open, though.

Maybe they'll put some models in the window.

I’m not trying to start another debate here,
but that logo would look better with a spire . .
- Skyguy 7

sweet sentiment, skyguy 7. .
I do like the logo just fine . . a nice intertwining of letters . . .
but we DO need that spire . . that simple, elegantly proportioned deco spire . .
not on the logo, of course, . . but in the high niche . .
in the recess in the NE corner of CPT's otherwise bland "crown" . .
Without this particular compelling accessory, . .
once offered, then snatched away . . the NYC skyline
is dominated by mere "foreign" bombastic banality . .

Who amongst us, actually gives a shit . .
how the expensive CPT apartments, for super rich Chinese, will look inside ? . .
There's no observation deck for us average New Yorkers . .
no ambitious crowning gesture on America's preeminent premises . .
no triumphant emblem of exuberance to connect with us dreamers of vision . .

instead Extell gives us an emphatic "Shhh!, The foreign rich deserve our discretion!' . .
(while lavishly presiding over us . . ostentatiously removed in their highfalutin tower . . without a smidgeon of alleviating architectural elegance, offered to us, on the outside . .
not one dollop of design deliciousness . . Such Jurisprudence !!!!!

Yeah comrades, what do WE get to see ? . . nuttin' much.
we get lambasted with an ominous overhang . . we get an absolutely KILLJOY crown . .
and we get unapologetically cold dispassionate inhospitable walls . .
1555,555500 feet high ! . . oh boy ! . . a really big, really bad, tasteless building . .
and yeah, that one element, could've made all the difference . .
so disappointing.

Yes, above that mechanical level is where it should be. It's a small one, but it's there.

This pic from the Verre thread def highlights how close this one is to 1000 feet and we are def taller than Cityspire now. :)

^ Won't be long before it overtakes 220 CPS.

^^ 90 more ft.

Current height about 860 ft. Too bad it will cover One 57.
