50 West 66th Street is a skyscraper planned for the Upper West Side in Manhattan, New York City. It is being developed by Extell Development Company and designed by Snøhetta.[1]

The building is more contextual than other Extell developments.[2] The building was originally to be 25 stories, but the plans were later changed.[3] When plans for an enlarged tower were released in late 2017, the tower faced immediate opposition by those living in the neighborhood.[1] The city approved the tower, overriding neighborhood opposition, in December 2018.[4]
