Handel Architects Behind Design of 1,210-Foot Tall 1 Park Lane, aka 36 Central Park South

Yesterday, YIMBY revealed the exteriors for 1 Park Lane, which has an actual address of 36 Central Park South, the site of the current Helmsley Park Lane. While we speculated that Vinoly was behind the renderings, we have now learned that Handel Architects is in fact behind the design, which is unsurprising considering the supertall does resemble a vertically extruded take on the Trump Soho (another Handel project). The 1,210-foot tall building will have 88 condominiums, and completion is expected by 2020.

  1. It is hard to believe this is the chosen design for this site, which is possibly the best location in Manhattan for an ultra-luxury tower. I mean no disrespect to Handel — they are absolutely terrific for a slightly lower price point — but I have to imagine this is merely one of a dozen early proposals Witkoff/Macklowe are considering.

    • This design is being shopped around the EB-5 circuit so while changes are still possible, it seems likely to be close to what will ultimately be built, since designs are typically finalized by the time EB-5 funding is sought.
