Central Park Tower, coming soon to New York City's "Billionaires' Row" was designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill architecture.
A new crop of images of Central Park Tower in Manhattan is available to ogle. "The project is designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill architecture and is set to be the tallest residential building in the world once completed," according to an article by Dima Stouhi that shares the images and a few details about the development.
"The landmark tower will stand at 1,550 feet (472 meters) along Manhattan’s 57th Street corridor, also known as 'Billionaire’s [sic] Row,'" according to Stouhi. The development will also include a 285,000-square-foot Nordstrom department store. Residents will have access to a 15,000-square-foot terrace, indoor and outdoor pools, a playground, and a fitness center on the building's 100th floor.
Michelle Colman followed up on Stouhi's reporting with additional coverage of the Central Park Tower development in a separate article for Urbanize New York.
