Billionaires’ Row — as 57th Street in Midtown Manhattan is nicknamed — just crowned a new king.
The tallest tower on the stretch is officially 217 W. 57th St., called the Central Park Tower.
A ceremony held Tuesday morning in the concrete shell of a duplex on the 107th floor feted the topping out of the condo building, which is 131 stories and 1,550 feet high.
“It’s now the tallest residential building in the world,” says Gary Barnett, president of Extell, which co-developed the supertall with Shanghai Municipal Investment. “It’s going to be the best building in the city of New York.”
