by Steve Randall19 Sep 2019

The world has a new record holder for the tallest residential building.

New York City’s Central Park Tower has topped out at 1,550 feet and offers endless views, exquisite architecture, gracious layouts and an unprecedented level of service.

Extell Development Company announced the topping out this week and says the first closings will be in 2020.

The tower is on 57th Street, part of the “Billionaire’s Row” corridor and the price tags for homes start at U$6.9 million. 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.

The building will also boast one of the world’s most exclusive private members’ clubs, with 50,000 square feet of opulence across several floors; and there will be Nordstrom’s first full-line department store at the base of the tower. The store will be open next month.

Extell is co-developing Central Park Tower with SMI USA (SMI), the US subsidiary of Shanghai Municipal Investment, a leading infrastructural investment company responsible for the esteemed Shanghai Tower, the second tallest building in the world. Lendlease, one of the world's largest property, infrastructure, development and construction management firms, served as construction manager for Central Park Tower.
