Flatiron’s tallest tower, Madison Square Park Tower, is ever so close to the finish line, new construction site photos have revealed. The 65-story skyscraper is now entirely clad in its glass curtain wall facade, and the building’s first group of residents are expected to move in later this year.

There will be a lot of move-ins for certain considering most of the apartments here are already in contract, according to StreetEasy. Prices started from $2.5 million for a one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo measuring just over 1,000 square feet, when sales launched in October 2014. Among currently available apartments, prices vary between $4.9 million for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit, and go up to $20.7 million for a four-bedroom condo spanning 4,655 square feet.

Residents will have some of the most amazing NYC views from this 777-foot tower that was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox. Curbed got a glimpse of those jaw-dropping views when we toured the building right after it topped out in May last year.

In November, the developer, the Continuum Company unveiled a 55th-floor model apartment, and today they’ve released a time lapse video from inside the full-floor apartment above that model unit.

Located at 45 East 22nd Street, the skyscraper has a total of 83 apartments—a small number considering the scale of this project. The smallest apartments here are over 1,000 square feet. The first five floors of the building are taken up by a host of amenities including a basketball court, a golf simulator, a fitness center with a boxing suite, and a terrace with outdoor grilles, among others. While closings will begin towards the end of this year, the project will be fully complete by early next year.
