The fourth photo in post 7661 gives a great idea of what the spire would have looked like.

Falling ice capades: Extell sued over icicles at Central Park Tower
Bike rental company alleges developer didn’t take proper safety precautions

First, a dying luxury market. Then a pandemic. And now, a dispute over falling icicles.

Falling icicles?

That’s according to a lawsuit filed by a bike rental company against Extell Development and its contractors, including Lendlease, over a 2019 incident at Central Park Tower, the developer’s supertall skyscraper at 217 West 57th Street.

The company, Central Park Bike Tours, claims it lost six days of business and revenue due to the falling ice, and is seeking at least $150,000, plus fees, in restitution.
Quote:

“Negligent ice maintenance and removal related to the project at the Central Park Tower caused a shutdown of West 58th Street and several adjoining streets,” the plaintiff says in a lawsuit filed Thursday in New York State Supreme Court. “Current and potential customers were either fearful of or not permitted to walk toward [our] store because their lives were in danger.”

“While the city thrives on new development, building owners and contractors have an obligation to ensure their construction projects do not present a danger to the public,” the plaintiff’s lawyers, Pardalis & Nohavicka, said in a statement. “Despite previous incidents, warnings and shutdowns, the defendants did not take the necessary steps to ensure public safety.”

Central Park Tower is the city’s tallest residential building, and topped out at its full 1,550-foot height in 2019. It’s also projected to be the most expensive condo in the city, with a $4 billion sellout — though it’s faced the same pressures as other real estate projects because of the pandemic and the softening luxury market.

The Billionaires’ Row tower was issued two violations from the Department of Building last December over ice falling from the construction site and construction equipment. One reads, “Police on site. Street closed. No injuries.”

Central Park Tower has a history of safety issues that have resulted in litigation. In 2018, a sheet of glass weighing 2,300 pounds fell from the building, killing a security worker. Lendlease settled the lawsuit brought by the worker’s family for $1.25 million, although it continues to fight financial penalties.

In January of this year, the construction firm sued the DOB and the Office of Administration Trials and Hearings over a $25,000 fine imposed following the accident.

NYGuy, with pictures like this, the HVAC chillers and window washing cranes already installed, I feel like we should be discussing moving to T/O status for this thread.

If you mean completed, we'll be doing that when it is. Otherwise, I don't know what you're talking about.

At least this super y’all has some meat. It’s skinny, but not THAT skinny.

Hudson11 Dec 20, 2020 7:14 PM

This and 432 Park aren't all that skinny if you've stood at the base of both. Comparatively, 220 CPS & 520 Park, Madison Square Park Tower and 111 w 57th are mind-boggling.

Depends on the angle, from East and West this thing is pretty damn imposing. North and South it gets a bit narrower up top.
