See inside an apartment at the world’s tallest residential building

It’s been nearly two years since sales launched at Extell’s Central Park Tower and one year since the 1,500-foot condominium topped out along Central Park South, making it the tallest residential building on the globe. And now, we’ve got our first look inside one of the enviable apartments at this Billionaires’ Row building. The model residence is a 3,401-square-foot, three-bedroom corner unit on the 43rd floor, priced at $17,500,000. Not surprisingly, the interiors are decked out to the nines, but, of course, it’s the insane views we can’t stop ogling.

This unit, number 43C, is the largest three-bedroom apartment available in the building. Aside from the size, the selling point is undoubtedly those views, which are highlighted by 10-foot ceilings and seven-foot-wide floor-to-ceiling glass window panels. Most of the building interiors were designed by Rottet Studio, but for this model apartment, Extell partnered with renowned interior design firm Pembrooke & Ives.

The home begins in a dramatic foyer that features custom hand-plastered wall coverings and acts as a dark contrast to the bright and open spaces ahead.

The living/dining room is referred to as “The Grand Salon,” where the views stretch to the top of Central Park and both rivers.

The adjacent kitchen features sleek, Smallbone kitchen cabinetry and Miele appliances. It also has a built-in banquette that can comfortably seat six. This east-facing nook directly overlooks neighboring Billionaire’s Row tower One57, as well as other skyline highlights like One Vanderbilt and Robert A.M. Stern’s 520 Park Avenue.

The master suite has incredible southern views of Midtown. It was designed as a calming escape, with soft, neutral colors, pale silver plaster walls, and an upholstered headboard that stretches the width of the room. The marble-clad master bathroom boasts a freestanding tub and glass-enclosed shower. There’s also an oversized walk-in closet.

The other two bedrooms also have en-suite bathrooms. In addition, there’s a study.

Residents of Central Park Tower have access to unprecedented amenities, including the Central Park Club, a 100th-floor club that features a dining room, private ballroom (the highest in the world), bar, full-service kitchen helmed by Michelin-star chefs, and wine and cigar lounges. There are more amenities on floors 14-16 which include a large outdoor terrace with a swimming pool and cabanas, private screening room, children’s playground, and a full floor of fitness and spa amenities, as well as an indoor pool. The base of the building also holds Nordstrom’s seven-level flagship store.

There are 179 units at Central Park Tower; current availabilities range from a $6,500,000 two-bedroom to a $63,250,000 five-bedroom. The building is expected to be finished by the end of the year, with closings commencing in the first quarter of 2021.
