The Central Park Tower in New York City has topped out at 472 m (1550 ft), making it the tallest residential building in the world.

Designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG), Central Park Tower’s façade features combined elements of glass, satin-finished stainless steel, and light-catching vertical and horizontal details. At a height of 91 m (300 ft) from the street, the tower cantilevers to the east, creating Central Park views for all north-facing residences.

Rottet Studio designed the interiors of the residential units.

Luxury department store Nordstrom will fill the base of the Central Park Tower with a seven-storey store occupying approximately 27,871 m2 (300,000 sf).

  1. The size of these skyscrapers is stupid. Those buildings are far away from being sustainable architecture and surely not the way to build sustainable cities, or just livable cities.
