Vornado's 220 Central Park South Will Rise 950 Feet

New, 48 comments

UPDATE: Sadly, the 1,031-foot height on the plan exam was a clerical error, and 220 Central Park South will rise "just" 950 feet.

Department of Buildings permit troll New York YIMBY has kept close tabs on the filings for Vornado's highly anticipated tower at 220 Central Park South, and today YIMBY spotted a plan exam with an interesting piece of information: the tower's true height. It will rise well beyond the originally stated 920-feet; in fact, it will be joining the ranks of the "supertalls" being constructed nearby, reaching a height of 1,031-feet 950 feet. YIMBY also spotted a black and white drawing on the site's construction fence. It's officially a race to the top for the towers growing south of Central Park.

The extra 80 feet puts 220 Central Park South above One57 220 Central Park South will be the shortest of the bunch. Here's how they stack up:
6. Vornado's 220 Central Park South: 950 feet
