I don't call you troll? You seems to be like me a "New York Patriot" and thats GOOD.

But I don't agree that this building is less attractive than others. What makes New York so special? It is the diversity and not just in people but also in architecture, buildings and forward spirit. This stick structure is unique and I like it very much. New York needs all different buildings, in my eyes, thick, thin, tall, supertall, and OF COURSE MEGATALL. BUILD BUILD BUILD I SAY

If the ratio is 19:1 and the building is 93.5 feet wide that would make the building 1776.5 feet tall exactly

weird, maybe they have a secret patriotic agenda

But that's clearly not the case, even though data might not be exactly final, we know it's going to be in the 1400 range.

I think 432 Park will be a cool addition precisely because of its unique slim shape and height. I agree, the city needs a good eclectic mix of supertalls, some thin, some thicker. 432 Park won't be the last supertall. It will definately be different, which is a good thing!

It just looks a bit too slim to me for it's height. I wonder how much of that limited floor space will be taken up by elevators.

Midtown Penthouse Is Sold for Most Ever in New York

By ALEXEI BARRIONUEVO

Published: May 17, 2012



A mystery buyer has agreed to pay a record price in New York of more than $90 million for the duplex penthouse at a Midtown tower, the building’s developer said Thursday.

Gary Barnett, president of Extell Development Company, said the buyer, who declined to be named or to disclose his country of origin, bought the 10,923-square-foot penthouse on the 89th and 90th floors of One57, the building currently under construction at 157 West 57th Street.

The building, which features a Park Hyatt below the condominium units, will offer striking views of the southern end of Central Park and will be among New York’s tallest residential structures when it is completed next year. Since One57 opened for sales in December, about half of its 92 apartments have been sold, Mr. Barnett said.
While Mr. Barnett would not reveal the exact amount the buyer agreed to pay for the penthouse, citing a confidentiality agreement, he said it was less than $100 million. The price nevertheless tops the $88 million that a trust benefiting the daughter of a Russian billionaire, Dmitry Rybolovlev, paid this year for a penthouse at 15 Central Park West owned by the former Citigroup chairman Sanford I. Weill. Besides being a record sale for an apartment in Manhattan, that purchase also drew gasps for the record price paid per square foot: more than $13,000.

The One57 penthouse, which features 23-foot ceilings in a grand salon, traded for about $8,000 per square foot, Mr. Barnett said. He called the purchase by the Rybolovlevs, agreed to late last year, “not a good deal,” saying the market for superluxury properties in New York should be closer to $10,000 per square foot.

Foreign buyers, including Brazilians, Chinese and Russians, have been on a buying spree in New York and Miami in recent months, developers and brokers say. Russian and Ukrainian buyers have shown a particular willingness to pay top dollar for so-called trophy properties.

Mr. Barnett was quick to dispel any notion that the One57 penthouse was sold to a Russian, saying the buyer was not Russian, Ukrainian or from “any other part of the former Soviet Union.”

He described the buyer as a “very nice family” who plans to use the penthouse as a residence, and as “someone that people would recognize.” The sale had been a well-kept secret; the buyer agreed to buy the penthouse more than three months ago, he said, when the apartment was listed at $98.5 million — before Extell raised the asking price to $115 million to adjust for the market tumult caused by the 15 Central Park West sale.

Despite setting a record, the One57 penthouse did not crack the elusive $100 million barrier for a residence, which has not been broken either in New York or in Los Angeles. Mr. Barnett said he nearly broke it with a different apartment at One57.

Earlier this year, he said, a foreign buyer was “very, very seriously looking” at the “Winter Garden” unit, a duplex with a separate solarium totaling 13,500 square feet. The buyer was negotiating to buy that apartment and another full floor — a combination of floors 75 to 77 that would have been 20,000 square feet. The price would have been between $100 and $150 million, Mr. Barnett said.

He would not say why the deal fell through.

“I am hopeful we will break it one day,” he said of the $100 million barrier, “in this building or another one.”

That's ridiculous. Why is there water going 30 feet high? Are they fracking? Too bad the webcam can't be rewound like the one for the Whitney Museum construction in the meatpacking.

I hope these guys know what they're doing. If they flood Metro North, a lot of folks will be pissed.

By the way, WE are the only ones who care (along with the folks at SSP and Wired). This has been totally ignored by the lamestream media, except a passing mention in the Gray Old Lady - http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/20/re...o-the-top.html

So this tower is going to be the tallest building (to the roof) in NYC, this is going to be one spectacular construction to watch !!!!

Although it is a simple box, its sheer presence is going to turn heads for sure. I am actually starting to like it... a lot.... !!

I still hope they'll increase the height to 443 meters so that the building is both, the tallest in the western hemisphere and the tallest residential tower in the world

Oh I will monitor this building's construction, dont missunderstand me. I am always going to monitor the construction of a supertall no matter how uninspiring it looks to me. Especially when it is a supertall rising in New York, that I love so much.

I really do believe though that if the top 1/6 of the building was missing, it would be far more appealing to me, at least as far as proportions go. Anyways we will see. Maybe the cladding will actually change my mind or there are some design details that will make this building grow on me.

How can people be so conservative about such an incredible skyscraper on a skyscraper forum?

432 Park Ave is just awesome. It brings a dramatic contrast in the boring midtown skyline. It's height together with it slim shape is just great and spectacular.
Its absurd how some worship the minimal shape of the twin towers but bash this tower.

Okay this morning you can see that the central yellow crane is gone...they are placing forms for both the right rear tower perimeter columns, and significantly the starting to form the the north perimeter tower columns...looks like the rebar is close to being finished for the columns against 57th street....Be interesting to see how they get that excavator out of the back...better do it soon or it will have to be lifted out...things are really rolling along

YEAH lets hope that

One more thing about the height is that on the "SCP" site it says that the 432 park avenue is 1420 feet tall and 89 floors. That 432 meters Hope thats True tho
