2. The Arts Students League Building Will be Cantilevered Over

When the Central Park Tower, a supertall high-rise building being developed by Extell, is completed in 2020, it will be the second tallest building in the United States (after 1 World Trade Center) and the tallest residential skyscraper in the country, at a height of 1,550 feet. The ground floor will host Nordstrom’s New York City flagship store, there will be a hotel, and about 12 floors above the Arts Students League building, a cantilevered portion of the skyscraper will built, using air rights purchased from the League.
