With so much focus on the rising developments along Central Park South, there hasn’t been much discussion of new penthouses rising on the other end of the greenery, mostly because they are very few and far between. One of those rarities is 145 Central Park North, a 14-story residential building near the center of Central Park North in Harlem, between 7th Avenue and Malcolm X Boulevard. Today, YIMBY has the first rendering of the project, which is being developed by Einhorn Development Group.
With some progress on construction, a tipster from the area has brought YIMBY the first look at the design, by Gluck+. The rendering reveals a bold steel façade that rises up nine stories, two floors above its neighbors, with the remaining floors setback and covered by a reflective curtain-wall of glass, clearly done to blend in with the sky.
