Central Park Tower’s Glass Curtain Wall Nears Completion In Midtown

Quote:

Taking the number-one spot in our annual construction countdown is the 1,550-foot-tall Central Park Tower, aka 217 West 57th Street, the tallest building by roof level in New York City and the entire western hemisphere, as well as the tallest residential building in the world. Work on the glass curtain wall is approaching the parapet of the slender reinforced concrete superstructure, which rises 99 stories above 57th Street, aka Billionaires’ Row. The project is designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill and developed by Extell, which is expecting a $4 billion sellout on the tower’s 179 residences. A 320,000-square-foot Nordstrom flagship occupies the base of the building.

The final floors sit awaiting installation of the reflective glass curtain wall, while the crown is also in the midst of formation behind the yellow safety cocoon.

The 2010s have witnessed a record number of skyscrapers 1,000 feet high or taller topped out in the city. By next year, nearly all of the residential supertalls that have sprung up along Billionaires’ Row, including Central Park Tower, should be completed. Other parts of the city that are still in the midst of a boom include the Hudson Yards district and other projects near the Jacob K. Javits Center, NoMad, Long Island City, Downtown Brooklyn, and the Financial District. As the decade moves on, the next area primed for vertical expansion is Midtown East, especially along Park Avenue north of 42nd Street, where a challenger to the Central Park Tower’s roof level title has been proposed. Whether any future building will eventually surpass the 1,776-foot architectural height of One World Trade Center to claim the official title of the city’s tallest building remains to be seen.

Central Park Tower is expected to be finished in 2020.

That last shot is a nice one

Zerton Jan 6, 2020 4:12 PM

Well at least it's tall.

it looks nice.

I never thought a building could be both the pinnacle of a skyline and generic filler at the same time.

^Once that 1556 ft eyesore known as Tower Fifth gets built, people will appreciate "generic" more!

That one - if it ever gets built - would at least have a distinctive profile on the skyline, and we'll be able to get up there and enjoy it. I was looking at this tower from Harlem today, and it's very, very tall. But not a pleasing skyline marker.

Amen.

I actually appreciate this building quite a lot for its slenderness ratio. That cantilever looks so intriguing and is a mark of the era. The color is sophisticated, or will be once they remove all the wrap. I like that it is form follows function and isn't pretending to be anything other than exactly what it is. I think it's much more successful and elegant than 432 Park, which is truly boring and looks cheap. I find it's an ideal, although unintended, set piece with 111w57. It's not perfect, but it's definitely not boring (to me) thanks to the enormous height and cantilever.

I prefer its silhouette to a somewhat awkward 1 Vanderbilt, an opinion for which I will probably be scorned, but there you have it.

Nothing wrong with having your own opinion. But I have to tell you, as I was looking at this building on the skyline from a distance this morning, and all I could think about was how wrong this building tops out the NY skyline. A plain, nondescript tower would probably be fine for the tallest any other skyline, but not New York's. This building is just too plain. The only think that jumps out about it is the height. A tower this tall should have a better visual payoff at the top.
