A 66-story residential skyscraper designed by famed New York architect Robert A.M. Stern is taking shape at 220 Central Park South. The building will be 950 feet tall and will boast park views for most apartments. Many apartments will have floor-to-ceiling glass walls.
Classical in design, the building is clad in Alabama silver shadow limestone. A unitized design maximized prefabrication of the enclosure, reducing time spent on site installation. Shop-glazed unitized window assemblies complete the weather-tight system. The windows feature fixed lites, inward-operable hopper vents, thermally-broken custom aluminum frames, and high-performance insulated glass units.
To complement the hue of the limestone, aluminum window frames were coated with AkzoNobel custom formulations, including TRINAR TMC “Nickel Finish,” a three-coat metallic color system that imparts a distinctive, pearlescent finish to metal.
