220 Central Park South
New York, New York
Under construction, completion 2018
220 Central Park South combines an 18-story building called "the Villa" that will sit comfortably amongst its comparably-sized neighbors facing Central Park and the 950-foot "Tower" rising behind it. The Villa's entrance and lobby will connect by an arcaded passage to the Tower, wrapping the motor court, entered from West 58th Street. The two buildings share a common palette of silvery Alabama limestone and a pattern of dramatically varied fenestration and window groupings accentuated with Juliet balconies, set-back terraces, and ornamental metalwork. Both the Villa and the Tower will have a strong presence on the skyline, but—unlike some of its neighbors now under development—they will belong to the family of buildings that have framed Central Park for generations.
