I found a slightly different angle render I hadn't seen so I revisited an old compilation I had made.

old

new


Imagine 107 and 225 flanking One57 and this tower starts to fit in really well I think.

Edit: And here's the high-res original. Best 432 render imo >http://i.minus.com/iQilFueywWz1e.jpg

Wow, it looks cool in that shot! Lets hope the lighting looks this elegant in real life.

It will look crazy from the Central Park!

I was in Central Park yesterday and from the Lasker rink area this 432 Park in now visible. Only one crane, and part of the building, are visible as most of it was blocked by the white GM building but nevetheless you could see it.

Its presence is growing.

Not to mention 220 CPS and the possible new tower at the Park Lane site. Also, even at 220m, 45 E 60th, 610 Lex, and 250 E 57th be prominent given their eastern location.

Also, I predict that a magnificent tower also will rise at 650 Madison.

Lastly, I wonder where Wanda group will build its NY tower.

All the other buildings added into the panorama just shows you how out of scale the render of 432 Park is. There's no way that it would look that wide compared to 157 from that angle.

432 will probably look much thinner from that perspective in real life.

Compare it to nearby buildings not one57, I think I made it too thin. Plus this angle is the diagonal which makes 432 look wider.

The final height, the very top of the building.

To the top of the parapet.

Looks like the core has been jumped again. Moving along, moving along.

So glad this tower will not start fires and melt things when it's competed.

Rafael Viñoly no stranger to “fryscrapers”
Starchitect's London project has ignited a firestorm after glare melted a car
http://therealdeal.com/blog/2013/09/...o-fryscrapers/

"Rafael Viñoly, the Uruguayan-born architect who designed the new London building that’s now frying eggs across the street because of its intense reflection, is the same architect who designed another notorious “fry-scraper” in Las Vegas years ago.
In 2010, guests of Viñoly’s Vdara Hotel and Spa at MGM’s Aria began complaining of severe burns from the glare being reflected off the building’s facade.

“It felt like I had a chemical burn. I couldn’t imagine why my head was burning,” the Daily Mail quoted one lawyer as saying. “Within 30 seconds, the back of my legs were burning. My first thought was, ‘Jesus, they destroyed the ozone layer!’”

Viñoly’s website boasts of Vdara’s ”slender profile and curvature, which responds to Harmon Circle and the interlocking arcs of the ARIA hotel complex located across the shared circular drive. Three parallel, offset arcs rising to varying heights comprise the crescent-shaped skyscraper.”

Similar curvature is being blamed for the current situation in London.

The Mail went on to report that Viñoly “foresaw the issue with the reflecting sun but thought they had solved it by installing a high-tech film on the south-facing panes of glass,” but that an MGM spokesman had conceded the measures fell short.

We just got the following comment on the London situation, but are awaiting further clarification on how a repeat occurred:
A joint statement from Land Securities and Canary Wharf on 20 Fenchurch Street:

“We are taking the issue of light reflecting from 20 Fenchurch Street seriously, and are looking into the matter as a priority.
“The phenomenon is caused by the current elevation of the sun in the sky. It currently lasts for approximately 2 hours per day, with initial modeling suggesting that it will be present for approximately 2-3 weeks.

“As responsible developers we are making every effort to keep local businesses informed and we have communicated with them regularly since the issue first appeared. While we investigate the situation further we have liaised with the City of London to suspend three parking bays in the area which may be affected.

“In addition, we are consulting with local businesses and the City to address the issue in the short-term, while also evaluating longer-term solutions to ensure the issue cannot recur in future.”
