New Renderings of Extell’s Central Park Tower Emphasize Design and Record Height

June 16, 2016

A new set of images of the world’s upcoming tallest residential tower have been uncovered, these better revealing the cantilevering silhouette of the 1,550-foot supertall and how it will relate to the skyline of Central Park South.

The images of the Central Park Tower (née Nordstrom Tower) were first spotted by NY Yimby and are part of official EB-5 Immigrant Investor program materials posted online and provided by developer Extell. As such, they confirm that the supertall will indeed no longer have the spire, a feature which would have brought the tower to 1,775 feet and just a foot shy of One World Trade. The materials also reveal that the tower is being marketed with a height of 133 floors (the actual count is just 95, though some units like the 17,000-square-foot three-story penthouse have ceilings that stretch well beyond the standard) and 179 luxury residential units.

Other interesting tidbits include that Extell hopes to raise $190 million of the building’s $2.98 billion cost via EB-5 investment. And in addition to touting a Billionaires’ Row and Park-adjacent locale, the marketing documents highlight the supertall’s location near Trump Tower, “where the popular American presidential candidate lives.”

The tower is slated for completion in 2019. See more images in our gallery below.
