Looking at that last picture, it feels like this will be a much slimmer tower than i have thought itll be. Just another pencil in the forest.

Central Park is spectacular exactly because it's in the middle of this vibrant metropolis.
Looking at the wall of skyscrapers surrounding it in the distance is the 'feel' of the park. Will two more skyscrapers make it worse? Quite the opposite.
Shadows....cry me a river. Especially with the shadow studies opposing groups are waiving around showing the very worst case in the middle of dead winter.
Plenty of places in upstate NY to look at trees with no tall building casting shadows on them.

If your only reason to be in Central Park is to look at buildings, sure. For most people, the reason to be there is to enjoy some nature in a city that is incredibly difficult and costly to get out of for an afternoon of upstate tree viewing.

Plenty of spaces in the rest of the city to look at tall buildings with no trees throwing shade at you.

Where did you read 'only reason' in what I wrote?

Comparing these two pictures, you can see they began constructing the formwork for the next level. It seems that they are beggining to build conventional floors, so I think we can expect visible progress from now on.

The sit-down: Extell’s Gary Barnett on One Manhattan Square, financing megaprojects and “pedestrian” BK towers

"...You were hoping to score a construction loan for Central Park Tower to replace the $235 million Blackstone land loan, but you ended up refinancing. What went wrong?

We were not ready for it. This is a significant loan. We have to be far down the road in terms of buying out the job. We did an interim bridge loan till the end of the year. Blackstone stayed on for a small piece of the deal, and JPMorgan came in as the lead. Now we are ready for a construction loan in the neighborhood of $900 million and we expect to get one in the next few months. That only represents $1,800 a foot. It would be a very conservative construction loan.

How did you link up with SMI, your Chinese equity partner on Central Park Tower?

SMI was brought in to us by a broker. It took us a long time to negotiate a deal. They were very tough negotiators, but at the end of the day, we got a deal done that worked for everybody..."

Central Park Tower: Midtown's Future Tallest Skyscraper Gets Fluted Glass Curtain Wall
March 24, 2017
Quote:
Extell Development’s Central Park Tower is slowly making its way to its throne as Midtown Manhattan’s skyline king. Come 2019, the 1,550-foot tall skyscraper will have the highest roofline in the Western Hemisphere and will be among the most complex private developments undertaken in New York City history. Conceived by the city’s most heroic high-rise builder, Gary Barnett, the $2.98 billion project will be anchored by a 285,000-square-foot Nordstrom department store that will spread onto three other adjacent properties on Broadway between West 57th Street and West 58th Street. Above the seven-floor flagship store will be a five-story hotel and above that 80 floors (real floors, not Trump floors) of residential condominiums with glorious views of the city.






More DETAILS & RENDERINGS here.

Solid article. Apologies if this render is a re-post -- I don't recall ever seeing this angle before:



So freaking dominant. And I have to say, I'm missing the spire less and less.

I agree, based on this view, there is nothing a spire would improve. And I like the fact that despite it's height, it is more "substantial", or not as slim as for example the Steinway Tower.

I think with this tower, the Steinway building and 432 Park Avenue we might get a new plataeu of almost the same height, I feel like the extra height that this one has to the top of the parapet wont be enough to really set it apart from the rest of the central park south skyline. So the spire could have been a nice skypiercing element that cuts through this new plateau barrier. Now imagine this elegently designed spire lit at night and changing its colors. I feel that this would be awesome to see.

On a sidenote: After this boom, Manhattan should really get it´s first megatall. It´s about time to cross the 2000 feet mark finally and set something into the city that soars high into the sky, more than anything else around. Like the ESB and the pencils in LM did back in the days.

Don't forget 666 Fifth and One Vanderbilt which also will have roofs just above 1,400'!

Yeah and given it´s very prominent riverfront location, the Hudson Yards will only further emphasize the new plateau feeling. But it´s crazy to think of a skyline having a plateau at 1400 feet +. Something very unique IMO.

The central park south area including 57th street, once Steinway and Nordstrom Tower are completed will have to be one of the tallest urban blocks on earth, competing with Shanghai WFC and Dubai Marina.
