Get a glimpse inside what will be Manhattan’s tallest residential building

Extell’s massive supertall at 217 West 57th Street, aka Central Park Tower, launched sales last year, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at StreetEasy. As is par for the course with überpricey Billionaires’ Row towers (see also: 220 Central Park South, 111 West 57th Street), the rollout of residences at the skyscraper has largely been shrouded in secrecy.

But that veil has now been lifted, with the first public listings for Central Park Tower now live. The listings that hit the market today range from a 33rd-floor two-bedroom asking just under $7 million, to a 112th-floor five-bedroom asking a whopping $63 million. (That price point would put it close to the top of the list of NYC’s most expensive homes for sale.)

That apartment, a simplex, is not the building’s priciest pad, but it’s still pretty ridiculous: Per the floorplan, it has a “grand salon” with room for a large dining table and a piano; several reception galleries; and an entire master wing with a sitting room, dressing room, and its own entry foyer off of the private elevator vestibule.

With those listings come a few new renderings, too, showing off the building’s lobby, a master bedroom, and a massive indoor pool that will be available to guests as part of the Central Park Club, the development’s 50,000-square-foot amenity space.

The 1,550-foot-tall building, designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, will have just 179 apartments, which will start on the 32nd floor. The developer is hyping the tower’s “extraordinary views and floor plans,” though the latter have yet to be officially revealed; apartments will have generally large layouts, many with unencumbered views of the park. The smallest units will measure 1,435 square feet, while the largest will basically be a megamansion in the sky, at 17,500 square feet.

Extell itself is handling sales and marketing for the tower. It’s currently well on its way to completion, with the first closings expected to happen sometime in the beginning of 2020.

And now, floorplans:
