Officials closed down a block of West 58th Street on Wednesday after a ramp fell from Extell Development’s Central Park Tower’s TRData LogoTINY construction site.

The ramp fell 16 stories onto 58th Street as workers were attempting to move a 4,300-pound crate containing window panes, DNAinfo reported. The ramp was connecting a construction elevator and the building. No one was injured in the incident. FDNY Manhattan Borough Commander Roger Sakowich told DNAinfo that the crate was secure but its contents were destroyed.

Extell’s Central Park Tower recently got the go-ahead from the New York State Attorney General’s office to start launching sales at the luxury condo project. Extell is seeking a $4.02 billion sellout — the most expensive in the city’s history.

As The Real Deal revealed last week, Gary Barnett has priced at least 20 condo units at over $60 million. JP Morgan Chase is providing the developer with a $900 million construction loan for the project. [DNAinfo]Kathryn Brenzel
