I bet this building will be one of the most iconic skyscrapers in the world once it'll be finished. Viňoly really created a masterpiece over here

Tha may be including a spire? Anyway, floor height is increasing, that's for sure.

Yes, and there will be quite a few mechanical floors as well as 5-6 "open" floors for air to pass through.

Monday brings a flurry of activity at 432 Park Avenue. After Saturday's pour of the north portion of the street level slab, and a portion of the jog at the east, concrete today is being poured on the core slab, and the surrounding slab areas, including the jog. In order to accelerate progress, concrete is being poured in the jog at the east using a concrete bucket. Along with the concrete operations, a gang form is being assembled on the west open work area of the 56St slab, for future placement for the core walls.

As concrete pouring continues on the both the center portion of the street level slab with the concrete pump, while simultaneuosly using the crane and concrete bucket to pour the perimeter walls around the depressed portion at the east jog, coordination of getting the concrete trucks to the pump and concrete bucket, plus getting the trucks to the clean-out station is essential for overall pouring efficiency.

The large gang form appears complete on the west open working area, awating placement for the core wall. At the core, one can see the already placed section of form at the north.
