Mysterious Central Park South Tower Gets New Renderings

New, 16 comments

Although new interior renderings that surfaced last week indicated that Handel Architects may be the favorite in the race to design Witkoff's 1 Park Lane (aka 36 Central Park South), now NY YIMBY has revealed some new exterior renderings from 56 Leonard-designers Herzog & de Meuron, which seem to put them back at the top of the pack. Pelli Clarke Pelli is also apparently in the mix.

1 Park Lane is being developed on the site of the 44-year-old Helmsley Park Hotel, which preservationists tried and failed (so far) to save, and will incorporate a portion of that building in the lower floors in order to retain its air rights. Herzog & de Meuron's plan is around 1,000 feet, NY YIMBY reports, while Handel's would be 1,210. The developers have attached a 2020 completion date to the project, so they've got some time to make a choice, assuming they haven't already.
