Larry Silverstein's limestone pillar 30 Park Place topped out today at 926 feet, officially making it the tallest residential tower Downtown. The Robert A.M. Stern-designed building won't be complete until mid-2016, but the 157 condos, which sit stop a 185-room Four Seasons, are already 60 percent sold, including three of the 11 penthouses. The tower's location makes it stand out from many other super luxury buildings; many units look north, offering views of Manhattan and the Empire State Building that Midtown's new towers do not, a feature that sales director Loretta Shanahan-Bradbury said drew early buyers. But as the tower rose, people started to see that some of the most interesting views are much more intimatethe iconic Woolworth Building and the whole World Trade Center site are right there. All of the views have been a major selling point, and Curbed got to check them out from 750 feet up on the 73rd floor during a recent construction tour.
Floors 75 to 82 hold the tower's 11 penthouses, all of which have private outdoor space, thanks to tiered setbacks. The top two floors of the tower each hold a full-floor residence, but they could also be sold as one giant duplex with six private terraces. It would measure more than 11,000 square feet (inside), and sell for about $75 million.
