Central Park Tower‘s crown lights began to illuminate for the first time this past weekend, an exciting harbinger of the imminent full completion of the 1,550-foot Midtown supertall. Located at 217 West 57th Street on Billionaires’ Row, the tower is designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill and developed by Extell and stands as the tallest structure by roof height in the Western Hemisphere and the tallest residential building in the world. Corcoran Sunshine and Extell Marketing Group are leading sales for its 179 units and are anticipating a $4 billion sellout.
Work remains stalled on 50 West 66th Street, a 69-story residential tower that is slated to become the tallest skyscraper on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Last summer, it appeared that progress would resume on the 775-foot-tall Snøhetta-designed project after a joint venture was formed between Extell Development Company and global investment entity Tennor Holding B.V. to complete construction. However, later in the year, Landmark West filed its “Article 78” petition against the developers regarding the height and zoning of the edifice. The case was set to head to the New York State Supreme Court after the Board of Standards voted 2-2 on the appeal, but no further information is available. If realized, the tower would surpass the height of the nearby 200 Amsterdam Avenue, which NIMBYs also sought and failed to curtail.
