It will be halfway done when it is equal to the Four Seasons across the street.

Not to be picky but GM Building is closer in 1/2 height than Four Seasons

FS: 682
432: 1/2=699
GM: 705

Really like seeing the interior shots...like to see one of the mechanical floors

It already looks quite slender . I can't imagine how incredibly thin it will be once completed - which is great -

with how fast they poured they poured those columns after the last set, do you think we'll see a core pour and raise by/on Saturday?

I love this view down. It looks so tall already.

I am not sure what the dedicated form hoist is (english is not my first language) but all the climbing system and I think the external elevators (is that what you are asking for) are from Doka, a few pages back, I posted some drawings and the link to the products of Doka for this project

Why do some windows appear recessed, while others appear to be flush with the outside of the building? Also, while I don't think for a minute that this building will topple, I am curious how a slender tower will perform during high winds as opposed to a thicker building. Will its occupants have more or less problems with movement?

Size alone would suggest less concern for beginning inertial pressures but a higher susceptibility to resonance and torsion issues. However it's safe to say the architects took that into consideration and adjusted the design accordingly.

If I had to guess I'd say the worst case scenario for this building, as with most, would be a sustained high wind that featured a reverb effect as it continued to hit the building. These create an effect similar to earthquake vibrations but directed at the sides of the structure. Depending on the intensity and frequency these are the most common cause of wind-blown windows and might damage the structure, as well.

Of course, dragons are also bad for buildings. Dragons and very large gorillas.

And to think SHOP wants to build a building of similar height, but only half as wide.

Physically possible but I imagine you'd be passing the point of financial viability. So much of the building would be given over to structural requirements for stability and operations that you'd have nary any space leftover for actual use/sale! You can get away with that at the peak of tall buildings like Burj Khalifa where such spaces are mere novelties on top of an already highly functional building, but an entire structure like that at this height would be a real estate risk let alone a design challenge. The steel and concrete for the bottom third (where it'd be most susceptible) would have to be incredibly strong and well anchored all they way through the base, lest a hurricane wind sheer snap the building in half.

I've wondered about this very thing. CCs77 made this diagram over on that thread which compares the floorplans of 432 Park with 107 w. 57th. It seems that you're really sacrificing a lot of square footage... but they're countering that by making the uppermost units full-floor duplexes and triplexes, which will I'm sure be listed for exorbitant prices. Interesting to see if they can make a big profit with this thing, or if it winds up backfiring.

Or maybe they'll use carbon fiber. Somehow.
