NYC's Central Park Tower to be world's tallest residential building

The new skyscraper is right on Billionaire's Row


NSFW    NEW YORK — NYC real estate development firm Extell is giving the Big Apple a newly designed tower on West 57th Street, also known as Billionaire's Row.

The Guardian reports that a 472 meter high skyscraper called Central Park Tower is being built right next to New York City's Central Park. The tower is designed by architecture firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill.

The building features luxury apartments with glass windows where residents of the tower can get a "million dollar view" of NYC's Central Park, according to Archinect.

An exclusive club called the Central Park Club will also be located within the skyscraper, according to a news release by the architectural firm.

The club will include amenities such as an 18 meter swimming pool, a resident's billiard's lounge and a sauna and steam room.

If everything goes according to plan, Central Park Tower will be the tallest residential building the world once it opens.
