There is new momentum in the plan to replace the post-war rental building at 220 Central Park South with a glassy and modern (and way luxurious, 'natch) 41-story condo tower: New paperwork has been filed! First, the background: the 20-story, 124-unit building was purchased by a joint venture of the Clarett Group and Vornado Realty Trust in 2005. Years of legal wrangling with rental tenants followed, but the developers have won key victories of late. Over the summer a permit was filed to underpin the building in conjunction with a new adjacent project. That, as a Wired New Yorker points out, is Extell's project at 225 West 58th Street from architects Cetra/Ruddy. Last month a new permit was issued at 220 Central Park South with the note that previous audit objections have been satisfied. Not satisfied: Our desire to see architect Luigi Russo of SLCE Architects's vision for the site. C'mon, the plans have been floating around for years, someone's got to have a rendering lying around. Hit us up.
