Hopefully this works of my drawing for 432 Park Avenue. First click on the link, then click on the drawing, which will open in another window within the site. Click on the plus sign on the lower right of the drawing, and it will open full-size. It is a large drawing (I drew it to fit a 42X30 sheet).

But of course I'm aware, we're the only Country that's like that.. "That I'm aware of anyway."

As for Marcatio, I think your diagram looks Great!

This is spectacular. THANK YOU so much for putting the time and energy into making it, and for sharing it with us.

For anyone having trouble getting the full-size version, for me it worked when I clicked the "Download" link in the Media Options box on the right hand side of the Photobucket page.

And if you haven't seen it full-size yet, you are in for a treat.

Great work!!! Thanks for sharing. I don't know what line of work you're in, but if it is architecture related, this a great drawing for a portfolio.

Thought 432 looked great on cam this morning with the sun shining on its gleaming facade! The glass panels look great dark contrasting against the white concrete

Is the 57th Street crane coming down? And if so, are they putting another crane on the tower like they did on the 56th street side?

In my opinion, this building gets a 6 out of 10. One of its positives is the clear contrast, and thus visibility, of the windows. It gives it some scale, as opposed to an all glass building. Otherwise it's still a box.

I agree, less height would've helped this building look halfway decent.

I don't think it's hit most people yet how tall this thing will be, but still won't stick out too much in a place like Manhattan, partly because of the skinny width... and it won't even be the highest roof in NYC for very long.

Please build an antenna or something on top of it What a shame that this thing is being built while a marvelous building like Tower Verre is not even approved.

Torre Verre is starting construction in a few months. It has financing too.

432Park doesn't need an antenna.
