The general public can now shop for apartments in the tallest building in the world.
Listings were made available online for the first time this week in Central Park Tower, a super-tall going up in midtown Manhattan. The glass and steel skyscraper at 217 W. 57th St. already surpassed the 88-story 432 Park Ave., which formerly held the title, and is slated to reach its full height of 1,550 feet and 95 stories this summer. It will be mixed-use, with 179 condos starting at the 32nd floor, above the Park Hyatt five-star flagship hotel. A seven-story, 320,000-square-foot Nordstrom NYC, the brand’s biggest retail store, is coming to its ground levels.
Apartments will be two to eight bedrooms, sized between 1,435 and 17,500 square feet. Seven are now on its website, ranging from a two-bedroom on the 33rd floor, priced at $6.9 million, to a five-bedroom on the 112th floor for $63 million.
Interiors are designed by Rottet Studio, whose credits also include the Surrey Hotel on East 76th Street, along with the St. Regis in Aspen and the Beverly Hills Hotel Presidential Bungalows. In the floor plans are open layouts that place living and entertaining spaces in the corners to provide sweeping views of the New York metro area.
Its 50,000-square feet of amenities will be wrapped up in a Central Park Club spanning three floors. On the 14th will be a residents’ lounge with pool tables and screening rooms, in addition to a 15,000-square-foot terrace with a 60-foot swimming pool, cabanas, a bar and concessions, a screening wall and a children’s playground.
A health and wellness center will be located on the 16th level and will feature a 63-foot indoor swimming pool, along with a fitness center, basketball and squash courts, a sauna and steam and treatment rooms. Plans for the top level of the club, on the 100th floor, are not yet revealed.
The building is coming from Extell Development, which helped secure 57th Street’s nickname of “Billionaire’s Row” with the 75-story One57. The firm is also behind Brooklyn Point, which at 68 floors will be the tallest building in its borough as well.
“Over a decade of planning and collaboration with the world’s most talented architects, engineers and designers has resulted in Manhattan’s newest iconic structure,” Extell founder and president Gary Barnett said in a statement when sales launched last fall. “This building will stand out in New York City history as the singular residential offering that redefined luxury living.”
