New York’s New Delirium

Quote:
Projects such as the 1,397-foot (425.7-meter) 432 Park and the Baccarat certainly want people to pay attention, though attention seems to be lavished mostly on interiors. The Baccarat sales office is paneled in burled walnut, rare forms of granite and other stone, and of course, crystal fixtures and glassware.

A visit to CIM Group and Macklowe’s 432 Park’s marketing suite in the GM Building is a highly-orchestrated ballet, in which one moves past carefully chosen modern art pieces and photographs of interwar New York cityscapes and cultural icons of the period. Standing inside a full-scale mockup 10-by-10-foot window frame that characterizes the building’s look--and is meant to evoke the coffered ceiling of the Pantheon--affords an accurate approximation of the view from the tower rising just to the south.

Numerous other “moments” greet the visitor as he makes his way around the suite, including a bathroom with a 1,200-pound marble sink. Each of the 104 units will have one, and they are brought up in one piece. This makes sense when one considers that the combined value of the apartments is more than $2.7 billion.

The experience culminates in a four-minute marketing film that can only be seen in the marketing suite. The film was made by DBOX, an Emmy-award-winning firm that also designed the marketing suite space. Tightrope walker Philippe Petit is the film’s mascot and silent narrator, and the film is stuffed from end-to-end with “classic” references – repeating many from the suite itself – from the Barcelona Pavilion, to the Empire State Building’s brief role as a dirigible dock, to the soundtrack of Mama Cass’ “Dream a Little Dream of Me.”
I need to see that clip!!

Find the building in the first picture, it is shown in both pictures, but I posted the second one because it is pretty cool and shows all the skyline, you can find it there too but it appears very small.

That's really strange to think about. 200-300 feet shorter than 4WTC and it already has the same proprtions as the twins.

Earlier today, they raised the crane, and right now they are jumping the core!

With today's jump the tower has 42 apparent floors and is 651 ft tall, surpassing the 647 ft tall Sony Building!

Two more jumps and it will reach 682 ft, the same height of the Four Seasons, so in a few days it will clear all the buildings on the inmediate vicinity.

And with three more jumps from today, it will reach 697.5 ft, almost halfway to the top.

So, a lot of milestones to break during this month.

It's very hard to see from this angle.

Btw, the steelwork.

And if it has indeed surpassed the Sony Building, it's also taller than Two WFC and 570 Lexington Avenue. One more jump and it's over 200m.

If 432 has now overtaken the nearby Philip Johnson's Sony Tower ... that is something of milestone. Congrats to 432!!!

It seems a really efficient way to build. The concrete is both the core and the framing at the same time. Blop in a few windows and yer done.

Here's my view this morning from 1st Ave - at least from this angle, it's finally starting to break away from the crowd:



And, just for fun, here's the concrete beanstalk sprouting up...the first shot is from July 26, so this is about 4 1/2 months of progress:



(btw, if you look on the right side of this, you can also see the One57 crane shrinking away...)
