Metropolitan Tower (L) and Carnegie Hall Tower (R).

|Roof||218 m (715 ft)|
Construction started in 1984, and was finished in 1987. The tower caused minor discontent, because it blocked sight lines of Central Park. Critics' attention would turn, after the appearance of its taller neighbors, such as the CitySpire Center in 1987 and the Carnegie Hall Tower in 1991. The Metropolitan Tower is less than 10 meters from Carnegie Hall Tower, separated by the Russian Tea Room.
The tower has a slightly triangular floor plan, whose longer edge points to Central Park.
The realty firm that is in charge of the sales and realty of the many apartments in this tower is Morrel Realty, who are New York City Luxury Real Estate Brokers.
