Construction Update: The Newly Topped-Out 432 Park Avenue (from ny yimby)
BY: STEPHEN SMITH ON OCTOBER 22ND 2014 AT 6:30 AM

When Midtown’s first two supertall 57th Street luxury towers started rising, everybody assumed that One57, with its deep blue Christian Portzamparc design, would be the more attractive structure. Many saw 432 Park, with its relentlessly spare and square look, as a leach on the skyline, sucking in all the views without giving anything back in terms of aesthetics

But now that One57 is complete and 432 Park Avenue has topped out at 1,397 feet amidst a minor snowstorm of carefully orchestrated PR, the consensus opinion seems to be the opposite: Extell’s One57 turned out to be a dog, and CIM and Macklowe’s 432 Park has become an icon of the skyline, visible far from Manhattan. (Let this, and the unfortunate clipping of the Jean Nouvel-designed tower above MoMA, be a lesson to those clamoring for more government regulation of the design of skyline-piercing towers.)

Despite topping-out, 432 Park hasn’t yet shown its finished face – the windows are still covered by protective wrap, and the mechanical floors that break up the boxes into discrete sets are still covered in netting.
However it ultimately turns out, the building will – along with 20 Fenchurch Street, in London – define Uruguyan architect Rafael Viñoly’s legacy, likely being the tallest and arguably the most prominent building of his career.

I had hoped that the intial render was only conceptual when I first saw. This design is pretty boring, the only good thing is the height.

Eh. I respect the opinion, but disagree.

Proof that he should stop converting his color photos to black & white.

This is a great building and will instantly take place with the great buildings of New York City.

Each time in Movie or TV shows when they want to show New York, they can give a shot of this building and we will know we are in New York City.

The view from the top just blows my mind! And that is only the city part of the view. Imagine that PLUS the park part of the view!

I just realized that the spires of midtown are ordered in thinnest to thickest from west to east: NY Times, 4 Times Square, BoA, ESB, and then 432 Park Ave.

That view from the top is just epic. That will persuade some potential buyers I guess.

When this tower is finished up, and all the windows are in and the netting is down, and the facade is cleaned, then all of the subtle design elements at play here will come together and set this tower distinctly apart from all of its neighbors. Quote this post a year from now. The architectural praise is months away from really pouring in.
