Looks like they have some samples of the stone:

If those are really facade samples, then those sidewalk sheds are stronger than I thought. It also seems like a lot of effort just to see what the stone looks like on the site.

Nice!

Extell is going to need a blockbuster at 225 to compete with this.

Maybe the facade won't be real stone bricks but just the imitation. It really seems unlikely to me that they will indeed use full stone bricks on a supertall building. Half or more of the the building weight would be it's facade alone

the one on the far left is a tad bit busy for me and may make the tower appear a bit dirty to me. I think the 2nd one to the left would be perfect imo.

NY YIMBY: Construction Update: 220 Central Park South



Quote:
Excavation is making major headway at Vornado’s 220 Central Park South, and the first signs of eventual verticality are also on-site: mock-ups of the tower’s cladding are located next to the project’s entrance on Central Park South, giving an idea of what the facade will soon look like. Robert A.M. Stern is the project’s architect.



The latest permits — which were approved earlier this month — maintain the 66-story tower’s height of 950 feet. A separate 17-story ‘villa’ will be located directly on Central Park South, and the development will be comprised of two distinct buildings, much like 15 Central Park West. 220 Central Park South will have 160 condominiums in total.



Facade mock-ups reveal four different types of limestone that could ultimately clad the development, and the range is fairly specific, from mottled off-white to semi-beige. Each of the choices looks phenomenal, and regardless of the shade that’s chosen, the design of 220 Central Park South promises to become an iconic addition to the New York skyline.

I agree. The 2nd from the right would be good as well. Anyway, all 4 are of great quality. This will be a good looking facade.

Hopefully this will be authentic limestone, unlike 30 Park.

I assume these won't be solid bricks, they'll be slithers of either stone or concrete in large square sections; much like 30 Park Place

As I already said, I also don't think they will be solid bricks. They made this test stand look like a solid brick wall but I think they only installed slithers of each type meeting on angle to see how it will look on a building corners.

It will be utterly amazing to see this, Nirdstrom, Steinway, and Verre rise simultaneously!

Almost surreal to think of the density that will be added to the skyline by those towers but most importantly the fact that they are all quality designs (tho we're still waiting for Nordstrom to reveal itself). Seeing those towers rise at the same time will be something for the ages.

Verre should have been permitted to reach its original soaring height of 1,250 ft but thanks to the NIMBY pambys the developers and architect had to pair it down to 1,050 ft... still looks like a gigantic work of modern art in itself, stunning and exhilarating in the skyline! Steinway's "Stairway to Heaven" look will also be iconic... though we're still awaiting Nordstrom's design hints given here seem to point to another wonderful addition to the Midtown skyline. Thinking that by this time next year we may start seeing verticality picking up and in three years nearing exterior completion in addition to what's going on in the Hudson Yards area do much to get excited about for the city skyline... don't forget even Brooklyn is now getting into the act and may soon have its first supertall, or pretty damn close to it!

21. 31 W 57th.

This is just what we currently know about for 950' or more!

It is amazing that this formerly dumpy block on 58th will have two mega-luxury towers on either side with $100m+ apartments.



The junk is gone, but the old gems remain!



The best is yet to come!

Agree! These are amazing times!


Soon the Steinway, Verre, 220 CPS, 520 Park and the Nordstrom will all be rising simultaneously racing to join 432 Park and the soon to be completed one57. The Central Park skyline will be incredible.

Sorry if this has been answered before...but is the confirmed height 950 feet or is that just to the top floor and not counting the mechanical floors?

The 950ft figure is the roof of the building.

Amended Zoning diagram submitted to reflect 2nd additional building called the “villa”:

For those of you interested, I believe they separated the square footage between buildings in the application so the tower portion has 472,523 sq ft

Interesting. The Villa section has setbacks, which indicates an interesting design that doesn't just maximize square footage. That bodes well.
