Manhattan's Billionaire's Row is going to get a little bit crowded.

Curbed reported this past Monday that developer Extell Development Company announced that it has officially launched sales for the supertall Central Park Tower development at 217 West 57th Street. At 95 stories and 1,550 feet in height, the skyscraper is expected to be the tallest residential building in the Big Apple after construction is completed.

According to Extell, the glass-and-steel tower will hold 179 luxury condo units as well as “50,000 square feet of luxury services and amenities, as well as over 300,000 square feet of specialty retail space dedicated to Nordstrom's flagship Manhattan store.” The firm of Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG) designed the tower.

Gary Barnett, the founder and president of Extell, said in a press statement about the project: "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. 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."
