Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill have released a new video featuring Central Park Tower. The future 1,550-foot tall skyscraper will soon eclipse 432 Park Avenue as the tallest residential building in the world. The site is addressed as 217 West 57th Street, and will be the tallest skyscraper on 57th Street, aka “Billionaire’s Row,” within the next few months. Recent photos also show construction getting closer to the 137-story pinnacle.
11-19 Jane Street is an upcoming mixed-use residential and commercial project tightly nestled among the narrow streets of the West Village. The new 31,000 square foot structure will eventually rise six stories from a large rectangular plot of land that once held a two-story parking garage. It is being designed by London-based design firm David Chipperfield Architects, and developed by Edward Minskoff of Minksoff Equities. A total of seven residential units will be housed inside the building, averaging 2,382 square feet each.
