Central Park Tower sits at 225 W 57th Street on Billionaires’ Row in New York City, along the southern edge of Central Park.
In wealthy cities around the world, from New York to London to Los Angeles, a certain ritzy neighbourhood or street is being given an extravagant nickname: Billionaires’ Row, which refers to a part of the city where some of the richest people live in ultra-expensive homes.
The building is one of a bevy of super-tall luxury skyscrapers rising along Billionaires’ Row that are home to some of the most expensive residential real estate in the world. Some were recently finished, and others are still under construction.
Central Park Tower’s neighbouring buildings have sold multimillion dollar condos to high-profile buyers including Dell Technologies founder Michael Dell, Chinese billionaire Liu Yiqian, and billionaire Ken Griffin, who broke the record for the most expensive home ever sold in the US when he bought a $US238 million penthouse at 220 Central Park South.
The newest renderings of Central Park Tower show a grand lobby outfitted with the finest finishings.
The tower was designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG), with interiors by Rottet Studio.

The living spaces are placed in the corners of the residences to maximise the views of the city and Central Park, according to the developer.
The homes are clearly designed with the striking views at top of mind.
The residences start on the 32nd floor and are outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows.
In addition to the 179 residences, Central Park Tower will include the exclusive Central Park Club.
The private club will offer 50,000 square feet of luxury amenities spread across three floors, including a 14th-floor terrace with a 60-foot swimming pool, a sundeck and cabanas, and poolside food and drink service.
