What will be the width-to-height ratio of this tower? What is its width?

The city was thinking of outlawing those type of tours as a result of a tragedy, but nothing came of it as far as I know.

It changes as the tower rises.

Today from my cell, only way to break this plato on this view is if we’re lucky enough to get a spire

Union City (NJ) offers some of the best views.

^ hmm, i thought they cracked down on stuff like that after the fairly recent helicopter crash?

NYguy Mar 25, 2019 5:54 PM

They were supposed to.

The rule's impact appears moot, however, since "no doors-off flights presently depart" from the privately managed Downtown Manhattan Heliport, the city's Economic Development Corporation said in a news release. "This new amendment ensures that practice will be codified as permanent policy."

What's more, the new rule would not have affected the doomed flight that spurred its implementation, city officials acknowledged. Operated by Liberty Helicopters for the tour company FlyNYON, the 30-minute flight took off from a heliport in Kearny, New Jersey, according to the National Transportation Safety Board, or NTSB.
"Is there any hope or any conversation that we could get our friends in New Jersey at the table to mirror what we've done here?" New York City Council Member Paul Vallone asked the development department's aviation director Wednesday during a committee meeting.


Don't think I would do it, but it's nice to get the view from others.

Central Park Tower Surpasses 432 Park Avenue To Become The Tallest Residential Building In The Western Hemisphere :cheers:

Quote:

Fresh photos of Central Park Tower, aka 217 West 57th Street, show that the exterior safety netting has now reached the 92nd floor, and with formwork for the reinforced concrete following, construction has officially surpassed the 1,396-foot-tall rooftop parapet of 432 Park Avenue, making the supertall the tallest residential structure in New York and the Western Hemisphere. The imminently 1,550-foot tower is being designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, while Extell is the developer.

Once work reaches the rooftop, the height difference with 432 Park Avenue will become more apparent. Meanwhile, SHoP Architect’s slender 111 West 57th Street will become the second skyscraper in Midtown to surpass 1,400 feet, followed by Kohn Pedersen Fox’s One Vanderbilt office tower.

Completion of Central Park Tower is expected sometime next year.

By Western Hemisphere they mean the world but whatever....

I believe CPT, 432 Park, and the Princess tower take spots 1-3, in that order. 111 W 57th taking spot 3 once finished.

Burk Khalifa has residential units, so it technically is the tallest in the world (Eastern Hemisphere).

Right, but technically BK is mixed use ;)

CPT is the tallest all residential building

CPT is also mixed use, though it's predominantly residential.
