Construction on the soon-to-be tallest residential tower in the western hemisphere, Central Park Tower, continues to make strides. Since our last check-in, photos captured by NYConstructionPhoto show that the future 1,550-foot skyscraper has gained several more stories and received a great deal of its facade.

Details are still mum for the Extell development, being designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture. In late March, the massive Nordstrom that will occupy the first seven floors began receiving its wavy facade, designed by James Carpenter Design Associates (JCDA). It was recently announced that the Men’s Store will in spring 2018, a whole year and a half ahead of the Women’s Store, which will open in the fall of 2019.

The building is currently awaiting approval for its $4.4 billion offering plan from the Attorney General and if all goes according to plan, sales could launch in the latter part of 2017.
