Renderings from Robert A.M. Stern Architects are the first to reveal expanded programming and exhibition space at the New-York Historical Society Building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Located at 170 Central Park West, the spaces will be housed in a new wing of the building along West 76th Street. The façade will incorporate granite sourced from the same quarry in Deer Isle, Maine used in the society’s existing building more than 100 years ago, creating a seamless exterior appearance.
Upper West Side

Designed by Snøhetta with SLCE as the executive architect, and developed by Extell and Tennor Holding B.V., the 775-foot-tall structure will yield 127 condominium units and secure the distinction of the tallest building in Manhattan north of 59th Street. Lendlease is the general contractor for the property, which is located between West 66th Street to the north, West 65th Street to the south, Central Park West to the east, and the intersection of Broadway and Columbus Avenue to the west.
