Construction Tour: 145 Central Park North

South facade from Central Park North.

Facade installation is ongoing at 145 Central Park North, the 13-story residential condominium building at the northern edge of Central Park. Designed by Gluck+, the building design features a south facade of curtain wall to maximize commanding views of the Central Park from the interior. The curtain wall design is broken down into two distinct articulations: a taut all glass skin at the top four floors and a highly articulated skin for the lower nine floors with a deep bronze profile to relate to the height, rhythm and texture of the neighboring residential buildings from the 1930s.

The building’s 37 units, ranging from studios to 4-bedrooms, are laid out on the shallow lot as floor through apartments that offer residents southern views to Central Park and northern views to upper Manhattan. Residents will have access to a range of amenities including a common roof terrace, gym & lounge, storage, indoor parking, and bike parking. Completion is set for Spring 2020.
