Superstructure has topped out at Extell’s Central Park Tower, a 1,550 foot residential tower on Billionaire’s Row in Midtown. The 131-story tower is designed by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill, architects of the world’s tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa, in Dubai. With the topping out, Central Park Tower now stands as the second tallest tower in the United States, topped only by One World Trade Center’s spire. The tower is clad in a glass curtain wall with stainless steel fins that will reflect the sunlight to give the facade a sense of depth.
Nordstrom’s will occupy the 7-story podium, while 179 condo units are on offer in the tower above.
