220 CPS mentioned in the article.

Yale’s architecture dean on towers, poor doors and ‘naive’ de Blasio
http://nypost.com/2015/04/05/yales-a...ive-de-blasio/

[IMG]https://****************.wordpress.com/2015/04/stern.jpg?w=720&h=480&crop=1[/IMG]

Quote:
Robert A.M. Stern, dean of the Yale School of Architecture, is perhaps the one to credit most — or blame — for the new look of New York City.

He’s designed more uber-luxury buildings than anyone, including 15 Central Park West.

A trio of his ultra-high towers — 520 Park Avenue, 30 Park Place and[B] 220 Central Park South[/B] — are under construction. He’s also designed new condo buildings such as [B]20 East End Ave[/B]. The 75-year-old sat with The Post to discuss his work and the city.

Q: You take themes from the 1920s and 1930s to create new buildings. But they are often variations on the same theme, like 220 Central Park South, which could be described as a supersized version of 15 Central Park West. Why?

They belong to a family of forms, but like in any family, each child is a little bit different . . . I like to go back to go forward in my work. We looked to the skyline of the city in the 1920s and ’30s which many people, certainly from my generation, remember as a Golden Age. We want to continue that golden age, not reproduce it, but climb on its shoulders.

One way to do that is to have masonry-clad buildings. And when we’re lucky, such as at 15 Central Park West, we are able to have a limestone-clad building and achieve a level of detailing around windows, around doorways, at corners, and so forth that enriches the building, catches the sunlight and engages the eyes of the people who walk about the city and the streets because buildings are public art. That’s the kind of feeling we have in the older buildings from the 1910s, ’20s and ’30s. We lost it by and large after WWII, and now I hope we’ve done a little bit to put it back on track, put it back on the stage.

Q: Where do the super-tall, skinny billionaire buildings fit into this vision?

It isn’t about the height, it’s about how you design the building and how you proportion each part. We try to combine elevations and windows that give you scale proportioned to human proportions so when you look up at the building, you can place yourself and your body metaphorically into the building. . . . 432 Park Avenue by the developer Harry Macklowe is a bit repetitious. It’s not what I would do.

Our building, 30 Park Place which includes a Four Seasons Hotel for Silverstein Properties next to the World Trade site, is a good example of a very tall and very slender building. It’s on the same block with the Woolworth Building, so it’s a daunting neighborhood, but it is masonry-clad with limestone and precast panels and it has details, is interesting looking, and will have a wonderful top.

Meh. As much as I'm not into 432's stale and somewhat banal design, 30 Park Ave. is much less inspiring in every form. The clad limestone is very tacky, and the design details are very asymmetric in context with the entire tower. It just looks off, to some degree, with regards to the continuity of the architectural aspect of the whole design.

I'm a Stern fan I think he is a very good architect and a very astute urban theorist. As much as it pains me to say it New York needs to take some hints from Paris on its housing and transportation policies

This and 30 Park are a great throwback to NYC's Deco days.

There is NOTHING that man does that will go without at least one critic, no matter how much the vast majority loves it. That said, in regards to 220 CPS, that critic would not be me.

Now that the tower crane is up, I'd like to see some fresh new set of renderings. This tower will be an amazing addition to Central Park.

Regarding the second photo, is that other square hole a plot for a second tower crane?

But good to see rebar sticking out! All we need now is some pouring and it'll shpoot off to the sky!

I wonder if they're playing the waiting game along with Extell to see who releases their design first?

Per The Real Deal, 1/3 of the units in this tower have already sold.

Luxury glut? This is the world capital!

I would not be surprised if, given this success, Vornado adds more parcels to 31 W 57th and goes very tall.

220 CPS: One-third of the condos sold after six weeks

Vornado Realty Trust has commitments for $1.1B
May 05, 2015 01:30PM

Rendering of 220 Central Park South (Credit: Neoscape)

Enthusiastic buyers have snapped up more than a third of the condos at 220 Central Park South, developer Vornado Realty Trust said Tuesday.
In just six weeks – and without a full marketing center – the REIT has commitments for over $1.1 billion from buyers, “representing over one third of the building,” CEO Steve Roth said during a first-quarter earnings call.
Roth said a small sales gallery has been opened “to a limited audience” pending the completing of a marketing center. “What has been accomplished in five or six weeks has never been done before,” he said. “Acceptance by brokers and buyers has been extraordinary and unprecedented.”
Roth declined to disclose the average sales price at 220 Central Park South, a hotly-anticipated addition to Billionaire’s Row. But he said sales were “evenly arrayed from the top of the building to the bottom of the building.”
Vornado’s offering plan for 220 Central Park South was approved March 4, as The Real Deal first reported. Prices have gone up three times since then, and the total sellout of the building is now $2.84 billion, up from the original figure of $2.4 billion. While the offering plan’s least expensive condo was priced at just under $12 million, or just under $5,000 per square foot, sources said condos are trading for $7,000 per square foot.
The Robert A.M. Stern-designed building will have 118 units, split between a 69-story limestone tower and an adjacent 14-story villa. The original offering plan did not include six units, including the most expensive penthouse. In late March, Vornado added a duplex penthouse on floors 73 and 74 to the offering plan, asking $100 million, or nearly $10,500 per square foot. Sources said the priciest penthouse would ask between $150 million and $165 million.
Marketing guru Louise Sunshine is advising Vornado on the project and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales.
When asked Tuesday if the total sellout could top $3 billion, Roth said, “We’re delivering the best product that’s ever been delivered in the Manhattan residential market. … We’re going to get a fair price for a fair product.”

yes, why not go taller. Demand is just crazy, given the sales figures.
