Revealed: 1 Park Lane, at 36 Central Park South, 1,210-Foot Tall Condo Tower Replacing the Helmsley Park Lane

YIMBY previously brought you preliminary plans for the Witkoff-led redevelopment of the Helmsley Park Lane, at 36 Central Park South, and followed up with a post indicating that Richard Rodgers would be the architect. We have now obtained the first official renderings of the project, showing its exteriors, and while YIMBY has been unable to obtain confirmation regarding the architect, we strongly suspect it is now Rafael Vinoly. Documents also indicate the building will stand 1,200 feet tall, making it one of the tallest in the city.
