I believe the parapet is topped out. (At least that's what it sounds like)

IIRC the term "topped out" has been the subject of more than one topic of debate here. Especially in the NYC fora.
And then I dare say that there are a few of us here---myself not necessarily included---who will not consider this baby topped out until that spire gets raised, which alas (for them) seems now less likely than ever before.
I, for one, genuinely applaud the unshakeable hope they have against seemingly all hope.

Gary is just trying to steal Vanderbilt's thunder because he decided to go without a spire, lol, even though it wouldn't change this thing from being marketed as the world's tallest residential. But yes, they supposedly have reached that 1,550 ft mark. Time to see what else Extell has in store for our skyline.

Meanwhile, somewhere in the world, Harry Macklowe is shaking his fist, and swearing revenge. Sweet revenge.

Via CTBUH: 18 September 2019

Quote:
The Grand Central Terminal-adjacent supertall One Vanderbilt officially topped out this week, reaching its full 1,401-foot (427-meter) height. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, the tower is now Midtown’s tallest office building and the fourth-tallest skyscraper in New York City. One Vanderbilt, developed by SL Green, measures 1.7 million square feet (157,935 square meters) and boasts a unique terra-cotta façade, as well as the fourth-highest observation deck in the city.

The $3.3 billion tower takes up an entire block bounded by Madison and Vanderbilt Avenues to the west and east, and East 43rd and East 42nd Streets to the north and south.

This has been a significant week, and summer, for One Vanderbilt. The speed of construction is unprecedented for modern office towers in New York City, and compares to the Empire State Building’s completion nearly 90 years ago.

And in the same week, along “Billionaires’ Row”—as 57th Street in Midtown Manhattan is nicknamed— a ceremony in the concrete shell of a duplex on the 107th floor feted the topping out of Central Park Tower, which is 131 stories and 1,550 feet (472 meters) high.

The project is designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, a firm committed to the design of high-performance, energy-efficient and striking architecture. Central Park Tower’s façade 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 300 feet (91 meters) from the street, the tower cantilevers to the east, creating Central Park views for all north-facing residences.

Developer Extell secured the right to build Central Park Tower by buying 6,000 square feet (557 square meters) of “air rights” from surrounding buildings. Its 1,550-foot height makes it even taller than One World Trade Center without its crowning spire.

The building’s 179 two- to eight-bedroom apartments, which went on sale last fall and start on the 32nd floor, start at $6.9 million. The most expensive unit currently available is a five-bedroom on the 112th floor asking $63 million. The apartments are designed by Rottet Studio.

The priciest condos—like a three-floor penthouse—are speculated to sell for more than $100 million.

Central Park Tower is slated to be complete in 2020, when the first closings will take place.

Gary talks about the tower, seemingly not phased by a market oversupply or recession

NY is somewhat recession resistant. High resistance to global economic turmoil. At least in regards to investments and the residential sector. They may see a slow down, but it won't spell doom for a lot of developments.

Big day for NYC; retaking the crown from Chicago after 45 years.

Gary has every right to be proud of this accomplishment, imperfect as it may be.

Ironically, Gary may have his "crown" snatched a lot sooner than that. But yeah, they have every right to be proud. Quite a few have tried to build towers with roof heights higher than the Sears, numerous proposals around the country have come and gone. But at CPT, they've finally done it. Now, here's hoping for better designs with whatever mega developments Extell moves forward with next.

What an O.G..

As 50 cent once said:

"I don't know what you heard about me
But a bi**h can't get a dollar out of me
No Cadillac, no perms, you can't see
That I'm a motherf**** P-I-M-P"




If he really takes the crown by 6 ft, thats just evil right there.

But we shall see what Tower Fifth manifests into.

Well, Macklowe will have to run the same gauntlet that Barnett ran to get his tower built. CPT shows that it can be done. We'll see what happens, but for now CPT wears the crown.

Lots in store.

Few parcels or locations that may yield potential super talls not included, but more are bound to happen. Only a matter of time before the ESB won't even be in the top 10.
