NEW YORK | Central Park Tower (217 W 57th St.) | 1,550 FT | 131 FLOORS


oh man am I looking forward to this. Great Render. It seems just a little too tall.


I think the building itself is accurate, just the spire is a little too tall. Looks like about 2000 feet to the top of the spire in that render.


Yeah def too tall on that spire. I wanted to see what it would look like if Gary surprised us and we got a megatall. :grinning:


I still hope the 1st megatall will rise downtown. I’d wait for 2 WTC to be redeveloped if it resulted in a mega tall. The fantasy would be one on that location. But… might be dreaming too much on that one. :frowning:

From an aesthetics standpoint, Downtown would pull it off the best IMO. I would hope for a design to complement 1 WTC.


It’s the spirit of new york to push forward and build higher. I really hope that a megatall isn’t pushed off for years just to avoid surpassing 1 WTC. That notion contradicts everything the city stands for!


Great shots, JC


hahaha - who else but a true photographer would identify the optimal vantage point and insist on occupying it to get off the best shot. LOL…you outed yourself Tec!!


Midtown is too wide to ever have one pinnacle. it would only work if the height of the plateau in midtown was around 1,500 feet… which will not happen for a long time
