New York is the fourth most expensive city in the world by price per square metre, and the perfect setting for another world-leading feature: world’s tallest residential building.

The 1,550 feet (ft (472m) tall building has commenced closings and was announced by Extell Development Company that residents will be moving in shortly.

Sitting along Billionaires’ Row, the property flanks the southern end of New York City’s famous Central Park on 57th Street in Midtown Manhattan.

It occupies a site previously accommodating two buildings, demolished a decade ago to make way for the current development.

Central Park Tower also received the 2021 Award of Excellence by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) as “The Best Tall Building 400 meters and above,” and houses 179 two-to-eight bedroom residences.
