Well, he built a 357 meter building, that's pretty tall, so he might be interested in building something even taller, well, at least I hope he is

Chicago.

I have little confidence in a guy who needs a TV show to pay the bills.

Looks good. Thicken the grid though, I thought mine was enough but after I finished it looked all glass like 1wtc.

I wonder how much an apartment will cost in this building when it's complete. Can you SSC-friends buy me one "the crazy swede" for my birthday in 2015

THANKS

Seems like everyone made a model except the ones building it.

? I was pointing out what he was talking about. Being in Chicago, obviously Kanto wasn't talking about NYC.

Very cool renderings. Those gaps in between the sections of the tower, will those actually be open-air sections, for ventilation, or are they actually enclosed in glass? Someone said those sections are terraces of some kind for the residents...

Perfect. If it ends up like germantowers model it will look great, that does a fantastic job of making this 1 by 15 box look well proportioned.

While excavation on the site of 432 Park has been ongoing for several months, no foundation work had yet been completed. This morning marks the first laying of rebar for the base of the building, a major milestone and yet another sign that the building's rise is imminent. The work on rebar is visible on the northwestern corner of the site, and the retaining walls have almost been completed as well.

With foundation work now formally underway, 432 Park should be at street level within several months. The only similar tower in the city--One57--rose to grade fairly quickly, although financing issues paused the actual building's rise several times through construction. The simplicity of 432 Park's design could mean that the tower will rise even faster than One57 has, meaning that One World Trade's reign at the top of New York's skyline could be over as early as 2014. While speculation is unreliable, CIM still hasn't released detailed renders of 432 Park, which leaves Department of Building permits as the only source of information on the project.

If CIM takes a tact similar to the one Gary Barnett used with One57, detailed renders will remain undisclosed until the building is well under construction, as competition for the high-end residential market in New York is extremely fierce. CIM's tight-lipped approach makes even more sense in light of Gary Barnett's confirmation that 225 West 57th will rise 1,250 feet (or higher), as views are one of the key drivers of the northern Midtown residential boom.

Hello I originally started this thread in the Supertall section, apparently it should have been merged with the proposed thread. In that case my thread was closed by the moderator whoever he/she may be. No hard feelings I wasn't sure on the rules I was just happy to see a new building going up in New York and wanted to let the Skyscrapercity community be aware. Well I am looking forward in seeing this project completed.
Thanks
