Looks like skinny is the new sexy. Nice update on this tower and great shot Hudson11.

Probably around 50% of units will be occupied by full-time residents. About half of buyers are New Yorkers.

So I walked out into the living room at random and found my Mom watching a movie titled "The Switch" (2010). How ironic but the part I saw had a small timelapse looking out an office window toward the Sony (AT&T) Building so not sure if that's on 56th St. But you could see the very tip of the Franklin Building and that slanting building with the framed triangular apex in it.

In other words how funny that the filmmakers chose that particular shot of the city. If it was filmed today, that angle would be very different! Just... thought of this thread when I saw the buildings in that clip that's all. If it wasn't for following this thread and getting to recognize 432's neighbors at least by appearance, if not by name, I wouldn't have known.

What is more remarkable to reflect is the substantial fact of how the skyline has so dramatically transformed within a year. A transformation that is like weeds on steroids. It is really remarkable to see how the Empire State Building now has a fierce competitor looming over it, towering dauntingly into the sky. And what is more remarkable to ponder is the fact that a new group of competitors are just awaiting growth to truly bring the city into the 21st century.

It's incredible how quickly it's gone up. Can't wait for it to be completed.

And how tall it is. In most pics shown here it also seem to fit in very well.

that's only because we're getting used to it. This baby wouldn't win a beauty prize but it's impressive to say at least. Only because of these reasons is why it fits so good with New York
