The word you're looking for is cheap, the boxy version is much cheaper. Not a bad building, but not a good building makes a mediocre building. A 1550ft mediocre building. This is the Kwame Brown of tall buildings.

NYguy Feb 21, 2018 6:02 PM

Put it this way, it's not a building that should be higher on the Midtown skyline than anything else. Where is Amanda Burden when you need her?

Exactly.

The real crime is that Tower Verre should have been 1550' with this design limited to 1050'

patriotizzy Feb 21, 2018 8:00 PM

I think this one will come out to impress even those who hold little regard to its design. The sheer height alone with make it a piece to behold.

Made it past another set of mechanical floors, meaning we should start to see some of the setbacks soon.

Also I didn't realize until today this cladding was being put up. Honestly looks kinda cheap but considering I didn't even notice this wall in any of the renderings or photos up until today who really cares

I noticed it last week. I'm guessing it will be revealed to be the same as the facade.

You can see the beginnings here (towards the 57th St side)

Are they at a transfer floor? I could be wrong, but using 220 CPS for a gauge, the height has been the same for 3-4 weeks...

I think as far as short term excitement, I am looking forward to this reaching the top of 220 CPS so we have confirmation we are are at 1000 feet with this tower.

nyc_alex Mar 3, 2018 3:20 PM

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.

photoLith Mar 3, 2018 11:18 PM

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.

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.

Extell sells $107M in shares at its $4B Central Park Tower condo project

By Chava Gourarie
March 13, 2018


Quote:

Gary Barnett’s Extell Development sold $107 million worth of preferred shares in the $4 billion Central Park Tower development, according to documents filed with the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange on Monday. The deal will provide $94 million of cashflow for the development of the 95-story condominium tower.

Barnett closed on a $1.14 billion construction financing package in December 2017 for what will be New York’s most expensive condo project ever. The New York State Attorney General’s office approved the offering plan with a $4 billion sellout for 179 units. And while sales haven’t officially launched, Barnett has begun the process of marketing the units. And he’s not being bashful — Barnett is the first developer to attempt to sell 20 units priced at $60 million or more at one project.

IMO, CPT is like the Tupac of super talls. Keeps mysteriously appearing (spire) every once in a while. :shrug:

No, models are all in the back.

Windows on the right side is a mockup of the residential lobby and windows to the left is the projection room where they show the video of the tower and views from each unit.

I'm pretty sure they won't remove the films from the windows given the need of a darkened room for the projection and how the lobby is "rotated" so in reality, there won't be any windows on that side when it's built anyways

From what I've heard, all the N line 2 bedroom units are already in contract already; these are the 2 bedroom ~1400 sq ft full central park view units that go for around $6000 psf

I know its just a mass model and mock up, but come to think about it, CPT with skylights illuminating the base would look kinda neat, at least from street level.

What I can't wait to see is the lighting atop of Stienway, illuminating its waterfall wall like crown. In typical Barnett fashion, its competitor JDS has absolutely no detail added to its tower; One57, CPT vs Stienway. One is via Barnett (Extell), the other Stern (JDS Development).

JMKeynes Mar 19, 2018 12:22 PM

This tower will be stunning.
