REVEALED: First-ever images of inside $17.5million luxury condo in New York City - the world's tallest residential skyscraper - show floor-to-ceiling windows that give it panoramic views of Central Park and the city

A 1,550ft Manhattan skyscraper believed to be the world’s tallest residential building has unveiled the first glimpse of what its luxurious apartments will look like.  
The developer of Central Park Tower, the luxury condo building at 217 West 57th Street which topped out last fall, released renderings showing floor-to-ceiling windows that look out toward Central Park.
The images from Extell Development show what the inside of a three-bedroom condo on the 43rd floor will look like. The cost of the condo is $17.5million, according to Business Insider.

Central Park Tower is the luxury condo building at 217 West 57th Street. It topped out last fall at 1,550ft, making it taller than the roof of One World Trade Center and Chicago's Willis Tower

The interior was designed by Pembrooke & Ives, the New York City-based luxury firm.
The idea was to accentuate the views of Central Park so that it could be seen from both the living and the dining room.
The master bedroom also has floor-to-ceiling windows that look toward downtown.
The master bathroom allows you to stare out at the city skyline from either a soaking tub or a walk-in shower.

The condo also includes a study which has custom-designed pale oak wall panels.
Residents are expected to begin moving in after construction on the building, which will have 179 residences that the developers hope will fetch a total of $4billion, will be completed sometime before the end of the year.
The $17.5million condo on the 43rd floor is not even the most expensive residence in the building.
Apartments now listed on the tower's web site range from $6.9million for a 33rd floor, two-bedroom place, to $63million for a five-bedroom penthouse on the 112th floor.
It will feature 'the world's most exclusive club' with a 60ft outdoor pool, sundecks and luxurious cabanas for its super-rich residents.
The Club, spread across 50,000 square feet, will provide a five-star beverage service so that homeowners can cool off during the summer, as well as a spa offering massages, facials and body treatments throughout the year.

The shadow of the Central Park Tower stretches over the west side of Manhattan as seen from the window of the building as it celebrates its topping out in New York.  Critics have complained the tall, skinny towers proliferating along the southern edge of Central Park over the last few years are casting shadows on the park

To get an idea of just how tall the building is, its roof height exceeds that of both One World Trade Center in downtown New York and Chicago’s Willis Tower.
Measured just to the roof, One World Trade's height would be 1,368 feet. 
By comparison, Chicago's Willis Tower is 1,451 feet when measured to the top of its roof and 1,729 feet when measured to the top of the television masts atop its roof.
Central Park Tower will be the world's tallest building that is mostly residential, although there are other buildings with a residential component that will be taller.
Extell's partners in the project include Nordstrom, which is building a seven-story department store at the building's base.
Nordstrom department store will occupy the first seven floors of the West 57th Street building.
Floors eight to twelve will house amenity spaces for residents. The condominium residences begin on the 32nd floor and extend to the 131st floor.
The unveiling of the photos comes during a grim period for the luxury real estate market in New York City.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the COVID-19 pandemic has dealt the market an even bigger blow than both the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the 2008 financial crisis.
Some high-end condos have seen their prices be reduced by more than 40 per cent as demand has declined due to the pandemic, the Journal is reporting.
In late July, Michael Price, a financier, sold his 9,000sq ft townhouse on the Upper East Side for $18.8million - which is 51 per cent less than his original asking price of $38million.

Price and his wife bought the property in 2003 for $14million, according to the Journal.
One Manhattan owner of a five-story home in Chelsea sold it for $14.99million - even though he first listed it for $36.8million in 2016.
Between March 23 and August 16, sales of homes in Manhattan dropped by 56 per cent compared to the same period as last year.
Sales of properties valued at $4million and up dipped by 67 per cent.
Overall, new listings in Manhattan declined by 21 per cent.
For luxury properties starting at $4million, new listings were down by nearly 35 per cent.
Real estate analysts blame the lockdown and the racial unrest for the precipitous decline in the market.
Buyers were unable to see the properties for themselves since social distancing guidelines prevented real estate agents from showing them the homes in person.
There was also the turmoil surrounding the protests and rioting in the wake of the George Floyd killing in Minneapolis.
Shops were boarded up and restaurants and museums had already been forced to shutter due to the lockdown.
The wealthy have also been scared off by proposals from progressive Democrats in New York to raise taxes, though Governor Andrew Cuomo has said he is opposed to doing so for fear that it would drive the rich out of the state for good.
But it doesn’t appear as if Central Park Tower is offering any discounts.
According to its web site, the offering price for seven available condos in the building has not changed despite the pandemic.
In March, when the lockdown went into effect, Extell suspended construction due to fears that workers were at risk of contracting COVID-19.
But a recent report by New York YIMBY indicates that work has resumed and is expected to wrap up by the end of the year.
