    The world’s tallest residential building, Central Park Tower, tops out at 1,550 feet

    Central Park Tower officially topped out on Tuesday, breaking the record set by nearby 432 Park Avenue for the tallest residential building in the world. Reaching 1,550 feet high, the skyscraper at 217 West 57th Street would be the tallest building in New York City if not for the 400-foot spire of One World Trade, as New York Magazine reported. Developed by supertall-specialists Extell, Central Park Tower includes a seven-story Nordstrom flagship store and 179 luxury condos.

    Some of the residences were listed for the first time in May, ranging from a $6.9 million two-bedroom to a five-bedroom apartment for $63 million. In 2017, it was reported that 20 of the 179 units will ask for $60 million and above, including a penthouse for $95 million. Closings are expected to begin in the first quarter of next year.

    Developers predict the building will have a sellout of more than $4 billion, which would make Central Park Tower the country’s most expensive condo project ever.

    But the market has slowed for luxury towers, specifically those located on Billionaires’ Row. Jonathan Miller, a real estate appraiser, told the New York Times that 40 percent of seven towers in the Central Park South area are unsold. While sales data for Central Park Tower has not yet been released, the Commercial Observer reported last month that Extell’s other supertall on the Lower East Side, One Manhattan Square, has seen just 173 of 815 condos closed.

    According to a press release from Extell, “Central Park Tower’s beautiful facade features combined elements of glass, satin-finished stainless steel, and light-catching vertical and horizontal details that accentuate the interplay of texture and light. At a height of 300 feet from the street, the tower cantilevers to the east, creating Central Park views for all north-facing residences.”

    The 131-story tower was designed by Chicago-based Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture and includes three full floors of amenity space, dubbed the Central Park Club. The club spans 50,000 square feet and features an outdoor terrace with a pool, a wellness center with an indoor pool, and a massive ballroom and cigar bar on the marketed 100th floor.

    Smith designed Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the current tallest building in world, and the Jeddah Tower, the soon-to-be tallest, a 3,280-foot tower in Saudi Arabia. In an interview published Monday, New York Magazine architecture critic Justin Davidson asked the architect if Central Park Tower could have been taller if local zoning had allowed it.

    “Oh yeah,” Smith said. “Jeddah Tower is twice the height of this one. You could drop that in here for sure.”

    This WWII veteran wants 100 birthday cards for his 100th birthday


    James South is about to hit a big milestone in his life and he’s hoping others can help him celebrate by mailing him a birthday card.

    South turns 100 on October 7 and his birthday wish is to receive 100 cards. It’s a wish his assisted living home is trying to make come true.

    Brookdale Senior Living in Watauga, Texas, a suburb of Fort Worth, posted an image of South with a sign on Facebook on Friday.

    “Hello! My name is James South and I am a proud World War II Veteran! I will be turning 100 on October 7th, 2019 and I would like to receive 100 birthday cards,” the sign reads.

    South grew up in northeast Texas in a large family of sharecroppers, his son, Jim South, told CNN. He joined the Army in 1940 and was deployed to Normandy seven days after D-Day. During his service, his girlfriend Sophie wrote him a letter every day.

    “They were married for 55 years until she passed in 2001,” said Jim South, who is the couple’s only child.

    Since retiring at the age of 65, South has stayed active by woodworking, growing his garden, playing golf, and attending church, his son said. It was only last year at the age of 98 that he moved into Brookdale.

    Jim South said he has a three-day celebration planned for his dad’s big birthday that includes playing golf, eating chicken fried steak and catfish at his favorite restaurants and spending time with his family.

    “My dad taught me that a hug is better then a handshake,” said Jim. “And that money wasn’t the goal in life — it was happiness.”

    South plans on hanging the cards on a wall in his room and Jim said they have already contacted the local post office about a possible increase in mail.

    Samuel L. Jackson’s voice is coming soon to an Amazon Alexa device near you

    Say Alexa again.

    If you want to hear Samuel L. Jackson's voice coming out of your Amazon smart speaker, you'll be able to.

    Jackson's voice will be available thanks to neural text to speech, Amazon's David Limp said Wednesday. Neural Text to Speech will be able to mimic celebrities' voices, with their permission, Limp added.

    Enabling Jackson will cost .99. CNET's Ben Fox Rubin noted it's not yet clear if the cost is per celebrity. The feature will roll out later in the year.

    World War II veteran asked for 100 cards for his 100th birthday — he received more than 100,000

    WATAUGA, Texas — It has been three weeks of celebration for World War II veteran James South.

    On Monday, he celebrated his 100th birthday, and this year he had a special request — he wanted 100 birthday cards. He had no idea how many cards he would receive.

    His story started three weeks ago when his assisted living community Brookdale Watauga posted a photo of James South's wish on Facebook.

    Soon South's story was shared all over the world and cards started pouring in.

    So far, his family says, the veteran has received more than 100,000 cards.

    “To go to a store in town and pick out a card and send it to me, that’s almost more than I can handle I’ll tell ya,” South said. “It touches my heart.”

    “We’re just crying everyday because we’re just reading all these beautiful cards,” daughter-in-law Debbie South said.

    His son Jim says the cards have come from as far as Australia, Great Britain, and even China.

    Schools sent cards, offering them a moment to teach students about World War II. He heard from the the governor of Texas, United States senators, even the president of the United States.

    “Our nation owes your generation, the greatest generation, a tremendous debt of gratitude,” the letter from President Donald Trump read.

    “The people that have gone to the store for cards, and the people who have taken the time to pen out their thoughts and their feelings, it’s just been an overwhelming and an amazing response,” son Jim said.

    Now, as the cards continue to arrive, the family looks back on a Facebook post that started it all.

    “Holding that sign up and grinning at the camera is exactly what started this expression and this outpouring,” son Jim South said.

    The 100-year-old veteran is so grateful.

    “I’m just thanking God for watching over me and keeping me healthy. There’s no telling where I’ll go from here,” James said.
