There's a building in my neighbourhood that always reminds me of 432 Park. The dark part at the bottom is a nasty iron fence that got in the way.

That is remarkably similar except that the windows on this one look smaller than the ones on 432.

The thing about 432 seeing it in person is it doesn't look massive but it does look very solid. Definitely looks like a strong building, as it must be for its height.

Interesting. Is that facade concrete or stone?

And except that windows at 432 won't be recessed. I wish it was like on that pic but 432 will be quite different.

My guess would be tan coloured Aluminium Composite Panels, or just painted concrete.

That is 712 Fifth Ave, and imo it's unappealing, and a monstosity compared to 432.

One of the most interesting and exiting projects going on atm. I only wish it was more massive and taller. It would look even more amazing

The building looks good, but by far not as good as 432 Park will look. 432 park will bring non-glass facades into the 21st century

That 712 fifth ave looks amazing similar in width, maybe smaller windows, but it even has the "bands" that 432 has....IMHO..

Similar, yet so different. Too much concrete on that building. Good thing the windows are slightly bigger on 432 Park Ave that'll give it more of a glassy appearance

I assumed that the 5th Ave building was all stone. The rents in that tower are stratospheric.
