There's one glass panel without the protective film now installed.

they seem to be pouring the core, so, tomorrow we should expect a core raise.

Not sure how to embed this video, but it's a lovely little chat with Raphael Viñoly about the concepts behind this tower, with a great 3D render about halfway through that illustrates the heights of other major buildings in relation to the tower. And a fantastic lighting-up scale model that I'd love to park in my apartment somewhere.

Here's the link: Wallpaper.com

He's a charming dude.

Re: the video, I find it pretty funny -- given how much fervor there is on these forums about height -- that the architect himself misquotes the height of his own tower. At the end of the day, it's not really that important to him.

Interesting to see that they only use the roof height of the Chrysler Building, and I was confused with the Metlife Tower being 213m until I realized they mean the Metropolitan Life Tower.

There's actually something weird about the Chrysler Building that is very seldom mentioned on here to my surprise. Robert's about the only one who I can recall talking about it. The Chrysler Building's roof height is technically 1,046 feet. If you go inside it, you'll see that the H.O.F. is just under 900 feet (around 898 feet). From there, a system of ladders and original metal platforms from the construction still needed occasionally for maintenance go all the way up to the building's 925 foot height originally planned roof to a small platform about the size of about a 1/2 bathroom. If you look up from there, you'll see that the spire is hollow a good ways up from there. It's really similar to going inside an old Gothic tower with vaulted ceilings radiating from the tip at about 5-10 degree angles toward the ground. Although 99% of people consider the roof to be at 925 feet (including myself), when getting technical it goes all the way up to the tip of the hollow mast, we'll call it, totaling a height of 1,046 feet.

Yes I also always use the total height but I didn't want to offend someone like Kanto

What kind of manic would buy a seven block bookcase to put in a six block across tower?

I wasn't talking about total height. I was talking about roof height.

I know but even if I count roof height I use the total height of CB, for the same reason you mentioned.

Yeah, I'm the same way. The roof looks like it ends at 925, so that's where I'm putting it.

Billionaire developer Harry Macklowe showed off his artsy/daredevil streak in a recent photoshoot for ultra-tall condo project 432 Park Avenue.

Editorial and corporate photographer Robert Caplin took a portrait of Macklowe for a New York Times article on the 96-story project, which sold a penthouse for $95 million.

Caplin started the shoot with a simple photo of Macklowe in front of the in-progress building, before getting more creative:

“I started discussing my idea of placing Mr. Macklowe onto the 2nd story window frame outside the edifice of the building, which was a 10-story shell at the time,”
Caplin wrote in his blog. As photographer and subject walked deeper into the construction site, they realized they could only get Macklowe onto the second story by using a mechanical lift from street level.

While waiting for the site boss to bring around the lift, Macklowe decided to go full non-helmet at the active construction site (kids and non-billionaires, don’t try this at home): “Harry walked around the site to evaluate progress while wearing no safety gear, causing a bit of a scene,” Caplin wrote.

Enjoy the photographs below from Caplin’s site, and check out the full shoot here. If you’re hankering for more Macklowe, read our cinematic take on his other projects, 150 East 72nd Street and 737 Park Avenue.





MYSTERY SOLVED! haha

Owner developer or not...

... I thought walking around in an active, and in this case major construction site without safety equipment was a major violation with OSHA? (For people not in the United States OSHA stands for Occupational Safety Health Administration and regulates workplace safety amongst other things... it is a agency of the federal government)...

Also, when this cat stands on one of the top window sections in a suit I will be seriously more impressed!
