I'm not sure, but I think 425 Park Avenue is the building that has the Park avenue webcam on it, across Park avenue.

I'll admit, I'm not a big fan of the actual design either, but to me, the best thing about New York is its vast collection of skyscrapers. There is just going to be 1 stick like this in NY, and with all the other designs completed, under construction, or proposed, I think it will be a nice change for New York. It could spark even more desire for supertalls in New York. If a second like this was built, however, I would not be pleased.

I did saw an almost accident on the cam earlier today. Someone can walking down the ramp where the digger was busy, right into the blind spot of the digger. If the digger hadn't stopped turning on time he would have hit the guy.

I see there is a huge hole now in the center of the building. Will they make foundations for the core now?

It looks like the digging in the center is indeed for the foundation of the core. We'll see soon enough on the webcam when they will actually stick the rebar into the bedrock and start to pour the concrete.

Would this be considered an International Style skyscraper?

Almost everyone in here dislikes the design, so it must be very good

No, Brutalism involves rough, crude and bare concrete facades. There is no indication that this building will have such a facade.

The label 'brutalism' comes from the French word "brut" which means "raw, crude or rough", and refers to this method of concrete construction.

This facade is neither crude or rough concrete. It is treated in some way or other.

So it is International modernism (The style many 70s-80s boxes were built in including Sears and the Twins)
