True, but these are really close to each other. Quite a chalenge to work that way, but with so much lifting capacity, this tower shoud rise quickly.

OMFG! It's an incredible project to NYC. I'm here with Rodriko and he's shocked.

I certainly think the height is too invasive to Central Park. But i consider the design is cool.

Some of those cranes you see are at 220CPS across the street. Still, I think there are 4 cranes on this one right now.

Of all the big towers going up along the park this is the last one id buy in. Its just so boring compared to all the others. Even 432. I wouldnt be surprised if this one struggles to sell with all the product coming on line soon.

Well, the design is very plain, but this can claim the title of being the tallest amongst the new supertalls being built in the area.

I would rather buy an apartment with the best views than an apartment in the best looking tower.

It's also in the best location: the corner of the park next to Columbus Circle and the Upper West Side.

I realize it's hard to tell from photos, but the support columns and core like kinda thin to me for such a tall building. Can someone please speak about this?

The steel structure is the podium and not part of the main tower.

Ah okay that makes sense, I was thinking the same thing as SMCYB. That would be very thin steel for a 470+ meter behemoth

Can anyone actually see the support columns for the tower? (I'm not in New York).

The thick concrete walls are for the tower.
