432 meters was the height for awhile, I guess nobody bothered to change it and it stuck. The official height is currently 426 meters.
We should probably call it the Drake hotel redevelopment to avoid confusion but I have no control over that.

Should we expect an official name change at some future date?

I can't wait to see this project fully start. Kinda neo-80s futuristic shape (just how I like it) but I'm most excited to see the cladding. I'm sure it will be a pleasant surprise.

Exactly. People complaining about this building are missing the point. The more the merrier. Does it deserve to be NYC's tallest? Probably not. But it won't be for long. If it's only architectural purpose is to set a new precedent in NYC, then it should be considered a wild success (and that will not be its only purpose).

The pouring goes very fast, they load a bucket and it is empty in no time.
Those things are huge btw.

I don't think so. Or not officially. The website is 432park.com and if you think to some building like 780 third avenue, which is officially called 780 third avenue, the website is 780third.com but it's more often called the Wang Building (because of the company).
Moreover 432 Park Ave is a residential building so I don't think the name will change.
