Before too long, Central Park Tower will be the dominating tower over the park...

Out of all of these alleged sunlight blockers being built around Central Park...including 432& 157, in your own opinion, which will elicit the most favorable responses from both NYC residents and the millions of Architecturally minded tourists who visit every year?
For me, as a NYC and High Line resident, 157 is the most aesthetically pleasing and it has brought much favorable attention to the area. I believe even after the newest round of supertalls are complete, 157 will still be viewed as the first and most authentic addition of the next generation of high rise. residential buildings.
As much as I love 432 for it's modern simplicity, the 'extras' on 157 place it far above all others, both finished and unfinished. Also the fact that it contains a high end luxury hotel gives tourists an opportunity to feel as though they have had a personal experience with the building.

As a first time contributor, I just wanted to thank all of the dedicated forum readers who take time out of their busy NYC lives to post the pictures we all check in on a daily basis to 'study'. Without their input, the forum would not be what it is....the absolute best architecture website and forum in the world.

its true all the height markers have the ‘+,’ although i would say to distinguish it from the elevation markers co-listed just below.

Barnett closes on $1B+ financing for Central Park Tower
Tower, now fully funded, set to be NYC's most expensive condo project


By Chava Gourarie
January 01, 2018

Gary Barnett celebrated the New Year the only way he knows how.

The Extell Development boss closed on $1.14 billion in financing for Central Park Tower, and now has all the money in place for what is set to be Manhattan’s most expensive condo tower, according to documents the developer filed with the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange Sunday.

The announcement brings to an end one of the most closely-watched odysseys in New York real estate this cycle. Many had bet against Barnett being able to lock in the funds for such an ambitious project in the midst of slower sales and overall uncertainty at the top of the market.

Extell Development Company Closes On A $1.135 Billion Financing Package For Central Park Tower The Tallest Residential Building In The World

PRESS RELEASE
Jan. 2, 2018


Quote:
Nationally acclaimed real estate development firm Extell Development Company announced today that the company closed on its largest construction loan to date for Central Park Tower on December 29, 2017. Central Park Tower, a 1,550-foot-tall architectural landmark located on Manhattan's Billionaires' Row, will be the tallest residential building in the world. The financing package was comprised of a $900 million senior construction loan syndication led by J.P. Morgan and a $235 million preferred equity loan from a hedge fund.

"Extell has an exceptionally strong reputation with the lending and institutional investor communities and this sophisticated transaction affirms the confidence in Manhattan's luxury condominium market," said Gary Barnett, President and Founder of Extell Development Company. "New York City has never known a supertall tower of this caliber and we are pleased to have our institutional partners on board to deliver a product that will be truly exceptional."

Central Park Tower will be the definitive New York skyscraper with an incomparable offering in every respect. Situated on 57th Street with Central Park directly to the north, the tower is supremely located at the intersection of Columbus Circle and the Plaza District. Designed by renowned firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, known for such celebrated supertalls around the world including Burj Khalifa in Dubai and the Kingdom Tower in Saudi Arabia, the building will include 179 ultra-luxury residences with gracious layouts, stratospheric views and access to New York's most elevated private club of full-service amenities.

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.

Central Park Tower will also be home to an approximately 300,000-square-foot Nordstrom department store. This new seven-story retail space will be the Seattle-based fashion retailer's flagship location in New York City, the first in its over 100-year history.

Extell pioneered the development of ultra-luxury skyscraper development on what is now considered the most prestigious residential corridor in Manhattan with One57, the first supertall tower on Billionaires' Row. The record-breaking glass tower overlooking Central Park, which redefined the New York City skyline, includes 132 premier condominiums above the Park Hyatt's new five-star flagship hotel. One57 is home to the most expensive residence ever sold in New York City history at $100.5 million.

Extell Development Marketing Group will exclusively handle the sales and marketing for Central Park Tower with sales expected to launch in 2018 and completion slated for 2019. For sales information, please call 212-957-5557 or visit www.centralparktower.com.

57th head-on fin the Cervantes photo might turn out to be kinda disappointing.

Nordstrom looks as if it will completely occlude 111W/Steinway and block out what will seem to be a nifty-looking "morph" of it and One57.

First look inside Extell’s Central Park Tower sales gallery
$4B condo tower has a $95M penthouse



By E.B. Solomont
January 04, 2018


Quote:
Extell Development has kept details about Central Park Tower close to the vest. But images of the $4 billion condominium’s lavish finishes have started to trickle out, courtesy of a party the developer threw for brokers late last year.

The pictures, shared with The Real Deal by a tipster, show hammered steel kitchen cabinets, brass faucets and gray marble bathrooms flecked with white. Brokers who’ve already taken clients to the building say buyers can choose from light or dark finishes in the bathrooms and kitchen.

Extell declined to comment on the images, which are the first depicting the project’s sales gallery.

The Gary Barnett-led firm rang in 2018 by sewing up $1.14 billion in construction financing for the project from a consortium led by JPMorgan Chase, as TRD first reported. On Wednesday morning, the site at 217 West 57th Street was buzzing as construction workers milled about on foot and trucks laden with hoists idled on 57th Street.

Extell is projecting a sellout of just over $4 billion for Central Park Tower’s 179 units — 20 of which will ask $60 million or more — according to the offering plan which was approved by the New York Attorney General last May. Prices range from $1.5 million for a 569-square-foot studio to $95 million for a penthouse spanning 7,984 square feet. Three penthouses, the largest of which spans 15,898 square feet, were not listed for sale in the offering plan.

The building is being marketed in-house by Jason Karadus, an alum of Town Residential who jumped to Brown Harris Stevens in 2016. He joined Extell in August, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Although sales haven’t officially launched, brokers familiar with the project said Extell has been quietly marketing the condos to friends and family in recent months. Barnett’s firm invited agents on Nov. 16 to the project’s sales gallery at 147 West 57th Street — a retail space adjacent to One57, where the developer sold a record-breaking penthouse for $100.45 million.

“We are completely in love with the project,” said Brenda Powers of Sotheby’s International Realty, who attended the soiree.

Another broker who went the party said it was a throwback to the heyday of the city’s condo boom, with touches like hand-rolled cigars and wait staff passing out Manhattans and Old-Fashioneds.

“It made you feel like, ‘Oh good, there’s a little bit of extravagance,’” the agent said.

Don't mean to sound defensive, but since when did granite start to look tacky? Or is there something specific you find tacky.

Eh, I kinda agree the kitchen looks a bit tacky with the oddly textured dark cabinets. Not my favorite but it is different from the usual. All the other looks really good to me. Clearly all very high end.

Way over the top interiors. Too many textures, heavily veined stones, metal? It looks more like a trashy hotel interior or club than a suitable luxurious home.

For one thing there is no granite in any of those photos. That's all marble, the light being mirrored veined Carrara. Besides being the stone du jour for quite awhile now, I'm not sure how anyone could mistake it for flecked granite.

As for the rest of the model, the cabinetry is a little odd, they'll probably have a lot of buyers that don't like it and spec it out for something different. The rest looks like pretty par for the course super-high-end. Lookks good.

Those kitchen cabinets would have to go... along with that rose-gold sink. Ew. But the bathrooms looks decent.

Edit: And just wanted to say - the glass is looking really blue. Is there still a protective film on it?
