I guess we'll well-nigh see the building pop up in the NYC-skyline by the end of this year.
I couldn't wait less, now.

The New York condo market for new towers aimed at the ultrarich has been especially hot, with contracts flying out the door at new projects, and at prices well above 2007 peak levels. That comes even as the rest of the New York market has been slower to see a rebound. The rise in planned new towers has been driven in part by a rush of foreign buyers who see the apartments as stable investments. Numerous slim, tall towers aimed to price above $3,000 per square foot are planned.

"The upper end of the upper end is where you're seeing this froth," said Jonathan Miller, chief executive of appraisal firm Miller Samuel Inc. "In many ways, it's become a new housing category."

The developers of 432 Park Ave., a 1,396-foot tower under construction, say they have signed a contract to sell a $95 million unit, which would be a record sales price for a New York apartment.

Latest construction photos, from yesterday - this is beginning to make an impact. Funny how the 57th Street view is now much more prominent than 56th, whereas the opposite has been true til only a few weeks ago.

432 Park June 21st, 2013 Construction Update

Core pour taking place right now. Black netting is being raised this morning as well. The site doesn't seem to be buzzing as usual.

Selling Park Avenue Condos at $250,000 a Minute
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/23/re...anted=all&_r=0

Quote:
Harry B. Macklowe flew an Emmy-award-winning film crew to southern England, hired the famed tightrope walker Philippe Petit and bought the song rights to a Mama Cass classic, all for a four-minute movie to market his latest condominium development.

For years now, developers seeking to sell their condominiums have produced videos, typically featuring interviews with architects and designers, and rarely costing more than $100,000. But to make the movie for 432 Park Avenue — the luxury condominium that will reign as the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere when completed in 2015 — Mr. Macklowe spent more than $1 million. The price tag, which comes to $250,000 a minute, or more than $4,000 a second, raises eyebrows even in a city where the average condo costs $2 million.

“This film is a story, a trip, an experience — it isn’t about showing P. Diddy in a yacht,” said Danny Forster, one of the architects who wrote and directed the movie in partnership with DBOX, a marketing and branding agency that won an Emmy Award last year for its six-part miniseries “Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero.”

The movie consists of a series of dreamlike sequences, rife with images of wealth and privilege, and loosely plotted around a stunning brunette as she travels to her home at 432 Park Avenue from her country estate in England. She is shown leaving the manor in the backseat of a 1957 Rolls-Royce and then flying across the Atlantic in her Learjet.....

Given the prices of the apartments, this is a piece of cake.

Would be neat to see the final results of their efforts for the video.

I think our minds will be blown considering this will cost more than anything before, even the original dbox video for the new WTC.

Christina Makowski was chosen to be the face of 432 Park from a casting call of more than 200 models.

I wouldn't mind her as my mistress, though I fear my GF wouldn't be that happy.

And yeah, can't wait to see that vid.

Looks like they jumped the core again today. That seems as if that was only 3 or 4 days since the last core jump. The top of the core is now off all the cams.

Last one was june 17th, last monday. That means that this time they reached a 5-day cycle again, we have to see if they maintain it.

It is time to put the 57th st. cam on a higher place.

I was just looking at the webcam, and looks like it's grown taller than what it was at later part of the earlier week. Can it have reached 100 meters now?

Yeah, now they'll need to move 57th and Park Avenue cams.

Tomorrow they'll probably lift the forms and have a pour. I'll be sure to watch in the morning.

Have they been moving the cameras, to keep up with the core? I never get to see it in the light. I've never seen the cams in the light. And L.A.F.2. I've probably asked 6 or 7 times, but did you see the pool get built? If so, was it 1 fiberglass shell they hoisted up, or did they make it out of concrete? Just wondering I work in the pool industry, so that was kind of interesting to me. And if you know appx how big it was, because I think NYGuy posted Blueprints, but that made it look tiny.

No, they haven't moved it lately.

To answer your question, I never saw the pool get built. If you don't mind telling me its floor number, I may be able to find something.
