NEW YORK CITY — Extell Development Company has announced that Central Park Tower on West 57th Street in New York City has topped out at 1,550 feet, a height that will make it the tallest residential building in the world.
Extell is co-developing the Billionaires’ Row tower with SMI USA, the U.S. subsidiary of Shanghai Municipal Investment, and it’s partnering with One57 on the condominiums, stated a Sept. 17 release.
The 95-storey tower was designed by architectural firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture to be high performance and energy efficient, said Extell.
The facade features glass and satin-finished stainless steel. At a height of 300 feet from the street, the tower cantilevers to the east, creating Central Park views for all north-facing residences.
The tower features 179 luxury two-to-eight-bedroom residences beginning on the 32nd floor of the building and ranging in size from 1,435 square feet to over 17,500 square feet. Interior designs are by Rottet Studio, whose previous work includes the St. Regis Hotel in Aspen and the Loews Regency Hotel in New York.
Nordstrom’s first full-line department store will occupy the base of Central Park Tower with a 300,000-square-foot, seven-storey store. The new outlet represents Nordstrom’s largest single-project investment in its history and it will open to the public on Oct. 24.
