If you look at the chart, the elevation of floor 1 above floor 1, is "0", that is the floor.
So, the building would be 1521.83 ft to the parapet.



Level 1 is not a basement level. If you read the PDF document, there are plans of these levels:

subcellar 2
subcellar 1
cellar
ground floor
2nd floor
3rd-4th floors
5th floor
6th floor
7th floor
8th floor
10th floor
12th floor

So, ground floor = level 1, and the height is measured from the bottom of it (sidewalk level)
Also, that chart shows wind loads, obviously there are none on the basement levels.
Ok cool didnt read that but i was just sayin to the other guy that may not be true i never said it was fact. But its still a bummer that its only 1521 ft to the top when it coulda been 1550 or at least 1530

Beautiful contrast of urban density and the green

Nice looking render, without One 57 and 220 Central Park South the tower would look completely out of place on the skyline but with all of the other supertalls rising the mixture between old and modern looks amazing.

Centra Park Tower folks....

It's been a weird week for Extell in the realm of building names. A few days ago, the major development company revealed that its Lower East Side luxury tower at 250 South Street will henceforth be known as the rather random "One Manhattan Square." Now, a spokesperson for the project confirms that 217 West 57th Street, unofficially known as Nordstrom Tower, will officially go by the far less random and rather underwhelming "Central Park Tower." This isn't the first time the name has made the rounds; TRD reported in May that "Central Park Tower" appeared on the building's filings, but Extell's move to not send out an official press release for the moniker has kept it on the down-low.

Unfortunately the confirmation doesn't come along with any additional information, new renderings, or branded material. It is just one small step for the very massive incoming tower.

I think I'm going to continue to call it the Nordstrom.

Awesome!! Great to see the crane.
