It appears that Robert A. M. Stern Architects‘ 220 Central Park South is finally reaching full completion. The 950-foot-tall, 67-story residential skyscraper tower stands between Seventh Avenue and Columbus Circle and features 593,000 square feet of some of the most expensive living space in New York City. Vornado Realty Trust is the developer of the $1.4-billion-dollar project and expects a $3.4 billion sellout. SLCE Architects is the executive architect, while Thierry W. Despont is the interior designer.
Exterior work on Extell‘s Central Park Tower is nearing the finish line. The reflective glass curtain wall is approaching the parapet of the 1,550-foot-tall skyscraper, which is also addressed 217 West 57th Street. Designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, the supertall has the highest roof level of any building in the Western Hemisphere and will yield 179 residences, with Extell projecting a $4 billion sellout.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission is reviewing proposals to update the iconic Rockefeller Center public plaza in the heart of Midtown, Manhattan. Revised illustrations from developer Tishman Speyer and architect Gabellini Sheppard Associates offer a new look at the many changes their team team has in store for the historic plaza.
Work has yet to commence at 335 Fifth Avenue in Koreatown, where a 26-story mixed-use residential building is expected to rise. Pi Capital Partners filed permits last August for the site, which is located at the corner of East 33rd Street and Fifth Avenue. The 283-foot-tall building is being designed by Raymond Chan Architect and will span 85,224 square feet. Eighty-two residences are expected to be created, averaging 682 square feet apiece.
The curtain wall of SHoP Architects‘ dramatic supertall at 111 West 57th Street is nearing completion as condominium sales have begun to close. Developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners, the world’s most slender building stands topped out 1,428 feet above Billionaires’ Row in Midtown, and is currently the second-tallest building in the city by roof height. Meanwhile, the first closings have been recently finalized for the Landmark Residences, a collection of 14 homes located inside the attached pre-war structure that are designed by Studio Sofield and marketed by Douglas Elliman.
