This upcoming week should result in the pouring of the newest columns, another column form jump and the completion of the floor for Floor 8. Floor 7 appears to be a double high floor, as well as Floor 8, so rapid progress should continue.

Pix from 4/21/2013

Long time lurker here ... Finally posting for the first time. I was out and about today capturing a few shots of 432Park and other towers (even took a couple from my office where the 56th Street crane is just now peeking thru over the plateau of towers surrounding it.)

As noted on other photographs posted recently, this building stands out as a distinctive part of the midtown landscape already, not to mention what it'll look like once its height is visible from a distance...

Since there's no orange netting on the first two floors, which I believe is a double height lobby, I wonder if they plan to put the windows in soon.

I've heard that in tall concrete buildings, they use to wait longer before they put the windows, because that concrete is not yet on its full load, they're still adding a lot of weight on it as they raise the structure (and that's te weight of 80 more floors), so as they put more weight, the concrete is being compressed little by little and the size of the window is changing by milimetres or even centimetres (as the concrete column is compressed, it becomes a little bit shorter and wider, the same as if you compress a rubber with your fingers), so the window glass may break. But since this is a very special construction, maybe they have that process well controlled and they don't have to wait so long.

Thanks for the analysis.

I walked by it today. It's nice to see this getting higher so its easier to imagine how it look like. The concrete looks great and the windows are huge. Can't wait until they start putting in the glass. This is going to be one elegant tower IMO.

I didn't realize that the entire exterior netting and wooden framing could slide as one piece (at least for the north face).

If you save these two photos and toggle between them in a program like Picasa, you can see the entire north face netting slide up:

Hey Kanto could you compare these 2 bldgs together, the 1 in ? and 432, like you do your occasional height charts? Be a nice size comparison? Is that possible?
