anyone know the dimensions of the exterior columns? i've been trying to figure it out based on the few blueprints we have but i'm still having to just guess.



what we do know is that each face is 93' 6" wide, and that its 15' 6" from the top of one slab to the next. horizontally, if the columns are 4' wide then the window openings are 10' 11'', if we subtract 4' from the known height we get a vertical window opening of 11' 6", which is obviously wrong being that the windows are supposed to be square. so suppose the columns are 3' wide instead, then the horizontal width of the window openings are 12' 1", subtract 3' from 15' 6" and we get window opening hieght of 12' 6", still not a perfect square.



here on this drawing we have some measurements next to one of the columns. the column is 60px wide on the face, over to the left next to the bike racks we can see a measurement for 3' 10", it equals 60px as well, so lets now assume the columns are 3' 10", that means the horizontal width of the window openings are 11' 1 5/16" with a remainder of 1/16. now subtract 3' 10" from the height and we get a vertical window openings of 11' 8", again, not square. just encase the pixals are a little off due to quality i tested a width of 3' 11" also, the windows come out 11' 1/8" wide (with a remainder of 1/4") by 11' 7" tall, still not a square.



my last guess is based on this drawing, it shows a width of 10' 6" with a small equal gap on either side, i estimate 3", that would be an opening of 11', 66' for the windows leaves 27' 6" for the columns, making the columns 3' 11 1/8", subtract that from 15' 6", the height, and the windowing opening height is about 11' 7", still no square.

unless the fault in my thinking is that the windows are in fact perfect squares, which is just something i've assumed, maybe they're not.

Rise of The Super Towers: The Next Big Thing In Luxury Housing
http://www.forbes.com/sites/morganbr...uxury-housing/



Quote:
The residential tower under construction at 432 Park Avenue in Manhattan will have plenty of opulent amenities to draw the moneyed crowd: The units, which start at $7 million, feature private elevator landings, 12.5-foot ceilings, separate servant entrances, heated bathroom floors and the option to buy additional climate-controlled wine cellars and guest apartments. The building will have a 75-foot-long pool, a private restaurant for residents, room service and catering, even chauffeur service. But for all of the over-the-top features of the Rafael Vinoly-designed tower, the one sure to get the most attention will be its height.

432 Park Ave will jut 1,396 feet into the air over midtown Manhattan upon completion in 2015. At that lofty height, the building, developed by CIM Group and Macklowe Properties, will be New York City’s third-tallest behind One World Trade Center and the Empire State Building. It will also become the Western Hemisphere’s tallest residential tower, eclipsing the 870-foot rental tower New York by Gehry in Lower Manhattan, Midtown’s up-and-coming 1,004-foot One57, and Chicago’s 1,389-foot (spire included) Trump International Hotel and Tower.

“People want views. This will be a game-changer for the upper echelon of New York,” asserts Jarrod Guy Randolph, a luxury real estate broker with CORE in New York who has toured the sales center, which has been kept under wraps since its discreet opening in March.

432 Park Ave is the latest example of a race skyward among luxury residential developers. With the housing market in recovery mode, developers are taking multifamily buildings to staggering new heights, vying for the title of tallest tower and the prestige that translate into larger returns on investment while delivering the breathtaking views buyers are seeking. “What developers are looking to do is set themselves apart,” notes Randolph. “They are doing this because they can build that tall and capitalize on the land.”

In the past, most of the world’s tallest buildings were erected to provide office space, like Chicago’s Willis Tower and the Empire State Building. The shift toward high-rise dwelling started about 15 years ago, according to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, as interest revived in living in city centers. The 9/11 attacks dampened the nascent trend – but only for a time. As the housing bubble inflated, dozens of residential high rises began popping up in major U.S. cities. New construction ground to a near-halt as the bubble burst and recession ensued, but now, as developers begin to bring projects back online, their buildings – commonly luxury and super luxury condo towers geared toward cash-flush global buyers — are getting even taller.

In New York City, where a finite amount of land and a huge population have made vertical living common, the race to build the highest homes has heated up. For every tall residential tower that begins construction, another boasting more stories at higher feet enters the approval process. Once finished, the glass megalith One57 will become the city’s tallest residential tower with a penthouse encompassing the 89th and 90th floors that is in contract for more than $90 million. One57 will snatch the tallest title from New York by Gehry, where the top units of the 76-story rental building go for $45,000 per month. 432 Park Ave will stand 96 stories, with penthouses that are being marketed for $95 million. In November, One57 developer Extell submitted a permit application with the city to erect a 1,550-foot tower off of 57th Street that will be designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, the architects of the world tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

It's interesting that they used the architectural concrete for two of the small columns at the transition. There is a big difference between it and the normal concrete.

I'm also glad you got that shot... I wish they would zoom the camera out instead of panning up, so we could see the reveal down below.

I personally hope they just move the camera a few floors up. Not sure if it needs an open-air balcony or not. There's a rather tall hotel across the street which could keep track of the progress for a while until the building gets too tall.

They should put a wide angle camera on one of the cranes. Also noticed on park cam the crane operators now have a walkway sat on the ties to gain access.

Pouring!

They're moving ahead with the next floor pour!

Does anyone else notice the port-o-potty is surrounded by concrete at the moment? Seems risky

Sorta kinda cool thing just happened...

So, I'm doing my usual walk by 432 today and as I'm watching my now-familiar crew guys do their thing, up pulls a chauffeur-driven Benz. And who steps out but none other than Harry Macklowe! So you know I had to turn off the iPod and switch to camera mode ... I introduced myself, and wouldn't ya know it, he's actually quite friendly. I congratulated him on such a remarkable building he's blessing the Manhattan skyline with, then asked if I could take a few shots of him. I thanked him and he thanked me, and I kept it moving, leaving him to continue his tour of what is now without question my favorite project in midtown. I'll post the pix tonight...
