Several new renderings have emerged for Extell’s Central Park Tower that were discovered as part of EB-5 financing materials by YIMBY. Extell declined to comment on the renderings, but they closely resemble the ones previously seen for the supertall that's also known as Nordstrom Tower.
Construction is underway on the 1,550-foot tower, and the structure was already several floors above ground in April. We got a close up of the Nordstrom portion of the building this past February when the first rendering for the store was unveiled. But these latest set of renderings appear to be the closest look yet at the tower that’s being designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture.
YIMBY reports that the building has a marketing floor count of 131 floors, but that it will actually reach about 95. The EB-5 materials also revealed the cost of the project to be about $2.98 billion, and confirmed that the tower will be built without the spire that was part of a previous design. Construction is expected to wrap up in 2019.
