I hear you man It was at least several times when I tried to convince anyone there will be no recessed windows in that building I even remember when there were individuals who still strongly believed this is how the structural facade would look like

You are correct here.

Yay. Usually it's core, then rebar, then forms, then rest, and repeat. If they decide to rest tomorrow I won't be surprised.

don't know if this was posted before but I just found it while looking for windows pics... and I'm totally astonished by the size of them! I wasn't able to realize the scale of these openings :O
and I cant image the price for each of these windows, I think I have never seen a single window this large in any other building in the world, the tickness of the glass must be insane

The size of these windows is very easy to underestimate. A small SUV could easily fit in their frame.

It's funny you mention that. I wonder how many Ferrari 250 gto's will end up inside the building? Or any other priceless cars for that matter
There has already got to be some nice cars, in living rooms, right behind the windows, in NYC

This building is much more interesting to me than 1WTC/3/4. It is unlike any other modernist tower in the city. Much better in every respect than a glass box.

Great progress on this thing. I almost mistook it for one of the many similar height buildings in the area, yet it will be 3-4 times as high when completed.

This has to be one of the best publically displayed promotional renderings I have ever seen!

Just found out a friend of mine is working on this project erecting scaffolding. Hopefully he will be able to get me pictures as they progress.

He just finished up working at One57 as well - he certainly has a head for heights

Are the floor plates of 432 Park Ave large enough for commercial use?

Totally agree!

This is an amazing building. The most beautiful modern building in New York after Gehry. I like it very much because it's different and more beautiful than boring glass curtains.

But i can't like it because of Drake hotel. It had unique New York architecture which is losing. We all like WTC but modern architecture is only making NYC more and more ordinary.

We can't let it be ordinary. NYC is the greatest city on Earth!!!

Think about it!

What does this tell about the room height ?

You are right about the windows too..there must be 3 layers of 4 mm thick class in this on the outside glass alone.

For me IS the building of the century or well, of the decade, but anyway a very very unique building not only in NY but in the entire world¡¡
I simply love it,it is going to be so unique, that after the Empire State Building , the 432 will be the most photographed building of Manhattan¡¡¡ :-)
I can't wait to see it with 50 or 60 floors, I can't wait¡¡¡

And yet the actual product is but a secondary element of the image. Irony, or intent?
