CitySpire Center at 150 West 56th Street is a 814-foot, mixed-use skyscraper in Midtown, Manhattan. It was built in 1987 and designed in the postmodernist style by Helmut Jahn and Murphy/Jahn architects. The building features office space as well as residential units and retail, making it one of the tallest mixed-use buildings in America. The developer was Ian Bruce Eichner of the Continuum Company. Tishman Speyer and National Pension Service of Korea teamed up to acquire the building in 2012.

Eichner caused controversy for exceeding the zoning limitations for height and also for the problem of the buildings frequent whistling, a loud noise disturbance caused by the passage of wind around the buildings dome top. The dome was not modified until the city threatened the owners with daily fines.

In 2012, Steven Klar listed a, 8,000-square-foot penthouse at CitySpire for $100 million in a space which Klar claimed to have bought for only $4.5 million in 1993. The penthouse did not sell. Commericial tenants of CitySpire include New York Road Runners, law fim Windels Marx Lane & Mittendorf, and Brown Shoe Company.
