"Over a decade of planning and collaboration with the world's most talented 
architects, engineers and designers has resulted in Manhattan's newest iconic 
structure," said Gary Barnett, Founder and President of Extell Development 
Company. "Central Park Tower introduces a level of design, quality and service 
that hasn't been seen before. This building will stand out in New York City 
history as the singular residential offering that redefined luxury living."

The tower is located on West 57th Street, New York City's most prestigious 
corridor, with Central Park directly to the north and the dynamic hub of 
Columbus Circle to the west. Extell pioneered what is now known as 
Billionaire's Row with One57, the first supertall tower on 57th Street. Located 
above the Park Hyatt's five-star flagship hotel, the record-breaking glass 
tower overlooking Central Park is home to the most expensive residence ever 
sold in New York City at $100.5 million. 

Central Park Tower was designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture 
(AS+GG), a firm dedicated to the design of high-performance, energy-efficient, 
striking architecture on an international scale. AS+GG has collaborated with 
clients across the globe to design nine of the world's tallest and 
highest-performing buildings. Currently, AS+GG is responsible for the design of 
the next world's tallest building, Jeddah Tower now under construction in Saudi 
Arabia, as well Wuhan Greenland Center and Greenland Tower Chengdu, both 
currently under construction in China.

With their breadth of experience, AS+GG is uniquely suited to deliver an 
iconic, landmark building like Central Park Tower. The building's façade 
distinguishes itself from its surroundings by combining elements of glass, 
satin-finished stainless steel, and light-catching vertical and horizontal 
details that accentuate the interplay of texture and light. At a height of 300 
feet from the street, the tower cantilevers to the east, creating Central Park 
views for all north-facing residences.

The definitive aspects of living in Central Park Tower are the extraordinary 
views and floor plans. The grand living and entertaining spaces are 
strategically positioned in the corners of the residences to maximize multiple 
panoramas and citywide views. Structural elements are discreetly located 
between the residential units, resulting in floor-to-ceiling windows, 
unencumbered views and gracious layouts.

"One of the greatest responsibilities of architecture is to continue to elevate 
experiences yet create structures that are elegant and respectful," said Gordon 
Gill of Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture. "Central Park Tower was 
designed to take advantage of the spirit of the great city of New York and 
create an address worthy of its location on Billionaires Row and Central Park."

The interiors of these grand residences are designed by Rottet Studio, whose 
credits include The Surrey Hotel in Manhattan, The St. Regis in Aspen, The 
Beverly Hills Hotel Presidential Bungalows and The River Oaks in Houston. 
Rottet's interiors are marked by a distinguished level of detail and 
incorporating unique and custom finishes to create an unparalleled interior 
environment. Starting on the 32nd floor, the 179 ultra-luxury 
two-to-eight-bedroom residences range in size from 1,435 square feet to over 
17,500 square feet.

Located within the tallest residential tower ever built will be one of the 
world's most exclusive private clubs, Central Park Club.  The Club will offer 
approximately 50,000 square feet of thoroughly curated luxury amenities spread 
across three floors, each location providing a unique experience complemented 
by five-star service. 

The first club level, located on the 14th floor, will feature a residents' 
lounge with billiards, screening and function rooms. The centerpiece of this 
floor will be a 15,000-square-foot outdoor terrace with a spectacular 60-foot 
swimming pool, cabanas, bar, screening wall, food and beverage service, and an 
outdoor children's playground. The health and wellness center on the 16th floor 
will include a 63-foot indoor swimming pool, state-of-the art fitness center, 
basketball court, regulation squash court, sauna, steam and treatment rooms. 
The Club will culminate on the 100th floor at an elevation of over 1,000 feet. 
The plans for this remarkable space are yet to be revealed. 

At the base of the building will be the new 320,000-square-foot, seven-story 
Nordstrom NYC Flagship store that represents the company's biggest and best 
statement of the brand. After a 30-year search for the optimum site, the 
Seattle-based fashion retailer selected Central Park Tower as the location for 
its largest single-project investment in its over 100-year history. 

Extell is co-developing Central Park Tower with SMI USA (SMI), the US 
subsidiary of Shanghai Municipal Investment, a leading infrastructural 
investment company responsible for the esteemed Shanghai Tower, the second 
tallest building in the world.

Extell Marketing Group will exclusively handle the sales and marketing for 
Central Park Tower, with first closings slated for late 2019. For more
