You're clearly not the target market then -- the buyers for these ultralux condos don't want to live in them.

Interesting that they have concrete trucks at the site today and seem to be pouring something at the top. What could they be pouring given that they seemed to jump everything yesterday or this AM? I thought they poured the floor yesterday.

Awesome news. So I can update my diagram. The building is currently 90 meters or 295 feet tall

They need to pour the floor for the elevator lobby on each floor. Since they occur inside the core, we can't see when they build the forms, rebar, etc. Only when the boom is at work, do we know the floor in the core is complete.

Was working a photography event at 757 5th ave (General Motors Building) 25th floor and saw 432's cranes popping into view. Quite the dense pocket too.

I was not the biggest fan of this building, but the interiors changed my mind.





Anyway... for a residential building, the interior and the view is more important than the exterior.

Lousy weather but still working. Nice!!

BTW, that view from the GM building would be awesome except for that one building which will be blocking the view much of the way.

Big update! Funny enough I also have a pic a reader sent in from the GM Building, gives a bit better perspective as quite a high floor. 432 Park is rising out of the forest!

Full set of pictures below! Hope you guys enjoy.

The building in the foreground of today's Guess The City has an exterior that looks a lot like that of 432 Park's, for those interested.

depends on your perception of ugly. There happen to be many monstrosities in NYC, i believe this won't be one of them.
