New York has the world’s tallest residential building

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Central Park Tower in New York has topped out at 1,550 feet, making it the tallest residential building in the world. Located on West 57th Street, along the corridor known as “Billionaire’s Row,” Central Park Tower is the definitive New York skyscraper, offering endless views, exquisite architecture, gracious layouts and an unprecedented level of service.

“Central Park Tower is the pinnacle of development in New York and around the world,” said Gary Barnett, founder and chairman of Extell Development Company. “We would not be able to offer this level of design, quality and service without the contributions from the world’s most talented architects, engineers and designers.”

Designed by top architectural firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG), Central Park Tower’s beautiful facade features combined elements of glass, satin-finished stainless steel, and light-catching vertical and horizontal details that accentuate the interplay of texture and light. 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 grand residential interiors are designed by Rottet Studio, whose projects include the St. Regis Hotel in Aspen and the Loews Regency Hotel in New York. Rottet Studio’s trademark level of detail and unique custom finishes throughout Central Park Tower create a highly sophisticated environment. The 179 ultra-luxury two-to-eight-bedroom residences begin on the 32nd floor of the building and range in size from 1,435 square feet to over 17,500 square feet.

Located within the tallest residential tower ever built will be one of the world’s most exclusive private clubs, Central Park Club. At ground level will be Nordstrom’s first full-line 300,000 square foot department store.

Lendlease, one of the world’s largest property, infrastructure, development and construction management firms, served as construction manager for Central Park Tower. The project is scheduled to complete in 2020.
