Faits

  • This soaring tower consists of an octagonal core with two extension wings, the whole rising in triple setbacks that top out with a domed crown at 814 feet in height.
  • The building was the second tallest concrete skyscraper in the world when it was completed.
  • Cityspire is New York City's tallest mixed-use skyscraper.
  • The bottom 23 floors of the tower are for commercial use and above it are luxury apartments which increase in size as they rise.
  • Even though blocked by two other towers, CitySpire is highly visible from Central Park.
  • One of the most notorious buildings in the city – an array of minor problems right after completion were exaggerated by the press and local communities.
  • Right after completion, residents in the neighborhood began complaining about a strange whistling noise from the tower which was found to be caused by wind around its dome. The problem was resolved immediately.
  • The tower exceeded the allowed height by a few meters and was forced to create a community center for seniors as restitution.
  • A midblock pedestrian passage was completed on September 15, 1997, after 12 years since being approved by city officials, completing a network of public midblock walkways between West 51st and West 57th streets.
  • Tishman Speyer acquired this property in an announcement made on December 5, 2004, along with 11 other buildings, in a deal worth $1.852 billion.
