When it comes to enjoying the perks that a coveted lifestyle at the top has to offer, New York has the market essentially cornered with its amalgamation of mega-projects geared largely toward the one-percenters. Long a home base for alluring residential high-rises, the city has only been gaining momentum as of late with a vast portfolio of bustling new trophy projects loaded to the max with every proverbial bell and whistle — and then some.
From an eye-popping Manhattan structure touted as the “World’s Tallest Residential Building” to a sleek boutique-style condo development that’s sure to become the Upper East Side’s most desirable address and an artistically inspired project that’s unlike anything else in the highly sought-after Carnegie Hill neighborhood, here’s a look at a few stunning properties that are destined to shape the city ‘s skyline for some time to come.
Central Park Tower
Once upon a time, folks entering Midtown Manhattan were greeted by the Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building. But that’s all changed with the latest residential high-rise from Extell Development. The company that pioneered luxury living on what is now known as “Billionaires Row” with its One57 project — the first super-tall tower on 57th Street, at 90 stories and more than 1,000 feet — is coming online with another statement-making structure on the same prestigious Midtown Manhattan thoroughfare.
Billed as the “World’s Tallest Residential Building,” the $2 billion-plus beacon of gleaming glass, satin-finished stainless-steel, and light-catching vertical and horizontal elements soars 1,550 feet into the sky and has 131 floors. Armed with an estimated inventory of up to $4 billion to be sold, it’s now welcoming discerning buyers on the hunt for jaw-dropping vistas matched with exquisite architecture, lavish interiors and five-star service. An added perk? Ownership here comes with access to one of world’s most exclusive private clubs.
