I think those mirror the reinforcing structure of the steel forms. My guess is that this resulted in different temperatures during the initial curing of the concrete. Or sometimes these result from the embedded rebar conducting heat and resulting in the same effect. The rate of curing greatly impacts appearance.

Does anyone know if the surface will be treated or white washed?

I am complacent with the look of 432 P.A. in those renders, plus the way it looks so dominating, something really New Yorky...

Nice pics but I think they made 432 look to big in those pictures. I don't think they've done it properly to scale. This thing will be REALLY skinny.

Nope, the scale is right cause it matches the SSP diagram when you compare it to the Bloomberg Tower

Just because the people like it, what is the problem with that?

It may be on internet, but still you have to search it, and the fact that it is on internet doesn't mean that you can find it.

The people that post those pictures, found them and have the courtesy to share them with the people here, if a person happen to specially like that picture, why he or she shouldn't click "like". It is a simple way to tell the person who posted that picture, I like the picture you posted, thank you, I hope you keep them coming.


BTW, I haven't noticed before (I don't if it was shown before) but in the second render, the core is surround by a circular wall in the mechanichal floors. I guess it is better to channel the air, but it looks pretty cool also.

If those lighted open aired sections have a strobe effect at night that would be great.

And considering the cost per unit, much are they losing incorporating this open air design into the building ?

As a NYer, this building looks like a NY building.

Leave those curvy designs elsewhere, a Chrysler, should look like a Chrysler.

At the price they are selling? absolutely nothing

Obviusly all those things are included in the overall cost, and then in price of the apartments, anyway in those areas they have mechanichal equipment, that is needed.

This tower will definitely look glassy.





This photo reveals the drums nicely. If people recall, before the renderings were released, I described the design as a "Cuban, Little DrummerBoy," based upon the model my colleague saw.

Cuban referred to the six floating cubes and "Dummer Boy" was a pun referring to the drums in the mechanical floors.

I just salivated at those renderings. It definitely does look more glassy than anything else. It will look amazing at night.

Looks massive in that rendering.. Just disoriented, is it supposed to appear from those last 2 pics in a certain area? all I know is there's a pretty tall black bldg next to it right now, no Idea what its called but it at least show in that 2nd photo. Is it rising next to that 2nd black bldg on the second pic? (the 1 that's behind and thinner than the wider one in the foreground? Or vice versa? Or not at all?
