After much anticipation, Extell Development Company has unveiled the 100th floor of Central Park Tower, the world’s tallest residential building.

The meticulously designed space features a grand ballroom, a private bar and restaurant with seasonal menus from Michelin-star chefs, and a wine and cigar lounge, all with panoramic views of Central Park, the Hudson and East Rivers, and the Manhattan skyline.

The 100th floor is part of the Central Park Club, an exclusive offering that encompasses 50,000 square feet of white-glove services and amenities spread across three floors. This includes a 60-foot outdoor pool and sundeck with poolside food and beverage service, as well as a state-of-the-art wellness center, spa, screening room, basketball court, and 63-foot indoor saltwater pool. Pricing for current availability at Central Park Tower starts at $6.5 million.

The Belnord, Setting for Hulu’s “Only Murders” Show, Reveals New Amenity Spaces 

The Belnord is one of Manhattan’s grandest turn-of-the-century residential buildings and is the famed setting for Only Murders in the Building, Hulu’s popular mystery-comedy starring Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez, whose characters work together to solve a murder in the fictional “Arconia” building on the Upper West Side. 

The 12-story, full-block building dates back to 1908 and offers 213 two- to six-bedroom residences with remastered interiors by acclaimed architect Robert A.M. Stern. It is regarded for its arched gated entrance and 22,000-square-foot private courtyard, one of the largest in the city. The storied building is now showing off its new amenities designed by Rafael de Cárdenas, which include a double-height sports court with leather-cushioned walls, a “teen lounge” with a pool table and adjoining kitchen, and a whimsical children’s playroom.

The Belnord has witnessed three deals over $10 million in the last month. The condominiums are nearly 75% sold, with nine apartments currently listed with prices between $4.15 million for a two-bedroom home and $9.25 million for four bedrooms.
