I don't like openable windows on flat facades, it ruins their clean look.

Yeah, same problem as the East Pacific Center in Shenzen, very sleek look in the renders, but once done with all its windows open it looks like a typhoon hit it.

They could have just opened them from the top (i.e. Have the openings face up).

Though, hat may limit airflow? Does this building have some kind of special climate control (automatically adjusting windows to take in air for cooling purposes)? That's the only time I've ever known large buildings to have openable windows.

I'm assuming one wouldn't open a window during a rainstorm...

It'll look sleek once the weather cools and they can close the windows!

400 Park Avenue South Reveals Interiors, Lots of Floorplans



Quote:
The Fortress of Glassitude at 400 Park Avenue South has been kickin' around for a decade, and now she's thisclose to launching sales. The final product is an crystalline Christian de Portzamparc creation that will hold Equity Residential rental apartments on the bottom 22 floors, and Toll Brothers condos on the top 18 levels. Leasing and sales are imminent, and today, Toll Brothers dropped buckets of floorplans and renderings for the 81 condos with the launch of the project's website. Thanks to the building's unique shape, there are dozens of different unit layouts, and sizes range from 664-square-foot studios to four-bedrooms, with the bulk of the units being one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes. Detailed pricing has still not be released, but homes will start around $1 million, and the 40th floor penthouse will priced around $20 million.
