New York's Future Tallest Tower Begins Its Skyward Ascent

New, 3 comments

When we last checked in on the construction progress at Extell's Central Park Tower, the forthcoming tallest residential tower in New York City, it was little more than a hole in the ground. But a few months have passed and work on the supertall is plugging away, as a new series of photos by NYConstructionPhoto shows; in fact, it's finally risen above street level, with some of the steel support structure and actual floors visible. But that still doesn't offer a clue as to the building's final design: We know it'll be 1,550 feet tall, and that its spire has been cut off, but the rest remains a mystery.
