I've seen overhead shots of this building and I didn't see the core. So I guest I was mistake when I said there was one.

No core..Only elevator shaft..Walls are thick enough and connected that way so this building is strong enough..

A Knisett-style battle for control of this site is brewing between Barnett and Roth. The Yom Kippur War may look tame by comparison!

Roth's latest 220 CPW headache: Gary Barnett
March 28, 2011 09:30AM
Gary Barnett Developers Steven Roth and Gary Barnett are set to face off at 220 Central Park West, a 1950s-era apartment building that Roth's Vornado Realty Trust has been planning to demolish and replace with a 41-story, $400 million condominium tower for more than five years. But Barnett, president of the increasingly powerful Extell Development, is the leaseholder on the parking garage below, and so far he's refusing to be bought out, according to the Wall Street Journal. In December, Vornado agreed to pay $40 million to buy out the remaining 26 rent-regulated tenants at the 124-unit building, which it acquired with the Clarett Group for $131 million in 2005. Barnett, who has operated the garage for the past few years, has about six years left on his lease. Vornado may still be able to build at 220 Central Park West if Barnett continues to rebuff the company's buyout efforts, but that would make it a much more expensive project, sources said. Barnett also owns a neighboring lot on 58th Street -- adjacent to another Vornado-Clarett building at 229 West 58th Street -- and has already filed plans to build an 18-story apartment building on that site.

Honestly, if I were walking by and was clueless of what was going up here, I would probably think it is not that big of a project aside from the tower crane. But haha, yes I see your frustration.

Wow! This has really jumped in height since I last saw it! I'll have to detour up to 57th one day soon to see it in person.

Yes, now Carnegie 57 is improving quick...

... now we see the first setback at level 10/11, a first slight hint of the unique design to come.

Actually, the first setback is on the top floor in this pic clearly visible several weeks ago.

It does not look that tall, I would rather say 40 meter (compared to the building to the left).

Remember, the setback doesn't carry all the way across the face of the building.

I'd say 4WTC, it's already 1/3 of the way up. It should T/O in less than 12 months.
