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


#1614

Nicely documented. The next four hundred feet is going to be very impressive.

#1616

The four sisters of Central Park. Side note, 220 Central Park’s lights are incredible.

Moth. Air. Fog. Hair.

I thought I’d never see the day when a shade over 1000’ (talkin’ to you, One57) gets blown out of the water.

And IIRC, no one exactly/explicitly/implicitly/otherwise declared the addition of an architectural spire absolutely out of the question, either.


#1619

Whoa, sweet work as always, Tom! CPT and Steinway look freakishly tall next to One57!


#1620

Great work man. I didn’t realize how incredibly tall they will look.


#1621

Great job Thomas!


#1622

Great work! Wouldnt steinway be a bit shorter though? It looks a lot taller than the 50 feet it has over 432 park.


#1623

A little bit, yes


#1624

I think it’s accurate. 432 is a bit further back from the camera.


#1625

How long until CPT and Steinway are topped out? Thoughts?


#1626

Last I guessed I said February, but now I’m thinking April 2019


#1627

I’m starting to believe Steinway will top out before CPT. Even though CPT is rising at a reasonable pace, Steinway is just shooting up. Less complicated floor plans. I’d say Steinway first by end of Winter or beginning of Spring 2019.


#1628

That’s what I was thinking too lol

Is that the Essex House next to CPT in that pic? Could it be anything else?

If it truly is, I gotta say it’s NUTS that this tower makes a 461 ft tall building look like a cottage:

T’is indeed

The top of the Essex House sign is 503 feet according to CTBUH:

For reference, the tallest building in Phoenix AZ is 483 ft.

So yeah, Central Park Tower is just on that next level!
