interesting that the tapered concrete exterior column in the northeast corner of the core appears to continue up the entire building as an architectural flourish. don't think we've seen that in any of the renderings. maybe less glassy than we thought

NY Post: Here’s how NYC’s skyline is going to change

Quote:
[...]
This rendering from YIMBY is the most detailed yet of Extell’s long-awaited, so-called Central Park Tower designed by architects Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill. Its 130-floor, 1,550-foot height makes it easily the city’s tallest residential structure and loftier than One World Trade Center’s roof. The city’s first Nordstrom department store has signed a lease to occupy the first seven floors. Above it will be approximately 130 super-luxe condo apartments. Completion: 2019.
[...]


the rendering is by YIMBY (Otie?), via the Post. I'm expecting an exciting post tomorrow on YIMBY. Also 130 floors. lol.

before anyone brings up the apparently bland base, this is what it will look like up close.

And those are just the tallest currently under construction, there are many more gems worthy of being showcased in that picture.
Also by the end of the year 1 Vanderbilt, 2 WTC and 125 Greenwhich should be part of the crew.
NYC is already the king in matter of construction activity by a long shot but in terms of quality, it is also in a league of its own.
Great time for us skyscraper/architecture enthusiasts in the city!

I always liked this building, even with shitty renders. Now I love it even more.

And about that Central Park Tower render, it looks too much... google earth 3d, specially the modelling and textures of the lower part. It has over 100 floors, but I don't trust it too much.
