1st pic of central park

That first pic of Central Park, The one where the water, buildings and park trees almost create stripes. The juxtaposition of all those elements in one photo is stunning. It looks so pretty!

There will be more on higher floors, these lower floors always contain something that doesn't need as much floors, and the walls have to bear the rest of the weight of the tower.

Nice pics. It's interesting that they're paving the courtyard so early in construction.

The motor court is a big selling point for prospective buyers.

It's safe to assume that it'll look different in many ways.

The design that we've seen from day 1 is on Vornado's website and DeSimone's.

From VNO.com


From DeSimone




The final design might be slightly different at the base, but what we've seen is essentially what's rising.

At 220 Central Park South—the 950-foot condo tower being built by Vornado Realty Trust a half-block east of Columbus Circle—six of the building's lower floors are dedicated to mechanical spaces and will have ceiling heights ranging from 18 to 24 feet, according to a source with direct knowledge of the project's design. The mechanical floors will add more than 100 feet to the tower, where three floors were reported to be in contract to hedge-fund billionaire Ken Griffin for about $200 million, a record sum for a residence in the city.

Because the mechanical space acts as a platform that elevates the building, most of the condos at 220 Central Park South will start on the 21st floor, according to a spokeswoman. That's 190 feet above street level. At that height, the views are sweeping enough to command many millions of dollars—much more than they would be worth nearer to the ground.

Six of the building's lower floors are 18-24 feet each, but the 21st floor is at 190 feet? So floors 7 through 20 are about 5 feet tall each? What is this, the Mertin-Flemmer Building?
