Developer is still working on it... been a pain-in-the-ass process dealing with everything but finally almost finished. Is the loading speed the biggest problem for you? Just installed a CDN that should make things much faster, but still not fully fixed - spent a ton of $$$ on the re-design so it's extremely frustrating!!! (and if anyone wants to help please PM me!!)

Here's the full update from yesterday, btw.

432 Park Avenue late June 2013 Construction Update

I think your site design is great. Simple. Easy to navigate. You don't send me to a new page every time I click on a picture in the article. What's not to like?

Thank you!! It's just the loading that's an issue - I think it may be better now. Sorry for derailing the thread guys, but it's my baby and my anxiety is through the roof!

That's why it'll have a tuned mass dampener

(also: is there a way to show Instagram pics on SSP by hyperlinking? the image dialogue box doesn't have an image url to link to on the site...)

57th and Park Avenue cams have been placed correctly again!


Core pour going on right now, and they're testing more external elevators. Today's going to be a great day!

Actually, it looks like they are pouring the perimeter beams at the moment.

Great that the ugly green office tower is now almost entirely out of the view of the Park Avenue cam. Seems like yesterday I was waiting for them to pass the lowely 3 story buildings on 57th Street.

Awesome building! I got the chance to see it in person recently, and it is already impressive.
It is probably just because it is still not that tall, but it didn't look very thin to me.

Do you remember, guys, when at the beginning of the construction practically everyone said that this building is very ugly. Now it amazes practically everyone

I think SSC has a vocal "It's tall, it's great" crowd that does nothing but praise any super tall that's underway, regardless of merit. I for one still think 432 Park has awful proportions.

Nah, proportions are perfect. Just right for the surrounding area.

That's definitely me. The taller, the better
But I'll also add, I've never seen a skyscraper, regardless of It's height, that I didn't like

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.
I believe this is a view of the pool room

Not only will it have a mass damper, but the gaps in the facade every 12 floors are there to allow air to flow through the building in order to reduce the buffeting of wind and vortices. That will apparently make a huge difference, compared to one continuous, unbroken surface.
