Here’s what 220 Central Park South might look like

New rendering unveiled for Vornado’s ultra-luxe Billionaires’ Row tower

As construction at one of New York’s most anticipated luxury projects speeds along, a new rendering sheds light on what all the fuss is about at 220 Central Park South.

SLCE Architects released the image of Vornado Realty Trust’s ultra high-end building, designed by Robert A.M. Stern. The main tower will rise 950 feet and over 470,000 square feet of space across 173 residential units on 65 floors.

It also highlights the building’s “Villa” component, a 17-story Tall Section That Will Stand Directly On Central Park South And Blend Into The Existing Street-wall, New York Yimby reported. The 10 apartments in the Villa will be priced at over $30 million.

The image released this week largely mirrors a rendering from early 2014, thought to be dated.

Interest in the building remains strong, with at least a third of the units already in contract. The Real Deal, back in April, first reported that the building’s duplex known as Penthouse 73, listed for $100 million. Then, in June, a Qatari buyer was rumored to have offered $250 million for a gargantuan penthouse, as TRD reported. The buyer is in talks to combine Penthouse 75 and Penthouse 76 into what would become the priciest residence in New York City.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2016. [NY YIMBY] — Ariel Stulberg
