Two Towers To Rise Where Mayflower Once Stood

More details are emerging about the construction at the former site of the Mayflower Hotel on Central Park West. David Dunlap reports in today's Times that the 886,000 sqft complex, a Zeckendorf development designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects and S.L.C.E. Architects, will house 201 condos split between two towers (19 and 35 stories, according to Dunlap, though the Real Deal says 20 and 43). Prices will range from $2 million to $45 million. (Gotta cover those closing costs somehow). No pics yet (send 'em here!), though Stern says the building will fit in with the old-school (pre-Trump) CPW set. And that's bad news for those hoping to see a Sculpture for Living on the Park before they die. Reports Dunlap,

"Although developers customarily use hyperbole when speaking about their projects, William Zeckendorf may be accurate in saying that the Mayflower site 'is likely to be the last full block front on Central Park West or Fifth Avenue, south of 96th Street, that will be available in our lifetimes.'
UPDATE: Ah, yes, there it is, in the corner of that wide-angle view in the Times. It is so bland fits in so well, we missed it.
