Containing 104 luxury apartments ranging from $16.95m to $95m, the building measures a staggering 1,396 feet tall and spans 96 storeys, making it even taller than the Empire State Building and the soon to open, One World Trade Center.
Three years in the making, residents are due to start moving into the skyscraper early next year and will benefit from the most incredible views of New York City through the 10-foot-by-10-foot windows, as well as climate-controlled wine cellars, an outdoor terrace, a spa, a ‘massage therapy room’ and a pool. Not forgetting a billiards room, restaurant & lounge and a private gym.
So vast is the structure that it can be seen from as far away as New Jersey. It sits between 56th Street and 57th Street, right next to Central Park.
The property developers said: ‘We are proud to have created a New York City landmark that can be seen throughout all five boroughs, and which will enhance our city’s iconic skyline.
‘In this second decade of the 21st century, we are privileged to have been part of creating something that will join the pantheon of legendary 20th century structures like the Chrysler, the Empire State and the Woolworth Buildings.’
Whether it will achieve the iconic status of said buildings is debatable but it certainly won’t go unnoticed by the city’s existing residents and visitors.
