50 WEST 66TH Street by Snøhetta

Extell Development Company announced today that 50 West 66th Street – the 70-story luxury skyscraper – has reached 775 feet in height, making it the tallest tower on the Upper West Side. Designed by Snøhetta, with Hudson River and skyline views, thoughtfully designed floor plans, and over 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities all in one of Manhattan’s most treasured neighborhoods.

The striking geometry expands New York City’s rich legacy of tower design while embodying an identity formed by human scale at the street. Situated at the heart of the neighborhood’s cultural core, steps from Lincoln Center to the west and Central Park directly to the east, the building has joined the neighborhood, sensitively responding to its context, and referencing the area’s architectural character with a natural palette of refined materials.

The dramatic homes in the Tower collection, designed by AB Concept, feature soaring ceiling heights and polished walls of glass that frame the entirety of Manhattan. Private loggias are carved into The Tower’s corners like facets of a gemstone, providing magnificent views of Central Park, the Hudson River, and the New York City skyline.
