Robert A.M. Stern‘s latest Billionaires’ Row blockbuster continues its rapid ascent into the sky. As CityRealty.com reports, 220 Central Park South (220 CPS) is now two-thirds of the way up, construction having knocked out about 600 feet of the tower’s eventual 950-foot height. Application of the limestone cladding started in April and has thus far been installed across over one-third of the building. When finished in 2017, the two-winged skyscraper with its rare and direct Central Park South frontage will host 118 luxurious homes across 66 stories—and it will be one of the city’s most expensive residences. Jump ahead to see more photos of all the work that’s been completed.

Developer Vornado Realty Trust has worked with Stern to develop what many are already calling “a 2.0 version of celeb magnet 15 Central Park West.” Like the Limestone Jesus that precedes it, amenities in 220 CPS will be aplenty, including a porte-cochere, on-site parking garage, bike room, full-time doorman and concierge, fitness center, juice bar, spa, swimming pool, squash court, basketball court, golf simulator room, weight room, yoga/pilates room, children’s amenity area, library, lounge, meeting room, dining room, and a communal terrace. Units above the 40th floor in the main tower will exclusively be dedicated to duplex and quadplex condos, while the those in the shorter Central Park-facing wing, are being dubbed “The Villas.”

To date, listings have not been made public and prospective residents are supposedly being vetted by Vornado head honcho Steven Roth. We do know, however, that Sting and wife Trudie Styler are reportedly in negotiations for a pricey pad. Billionaire hedge-funder Ken Griffin is also said to have already staked claim to a four-floor, 23,000-square-foot penthouse combo for $250 million (it will be the city’s most expensive condo if the deal goes through).

As of November 2015, the building was 50 percent sold; Vornado is anticipating a project sellout of $3.17 billion.
