It will be the world's tallest for a short while before World One in Mumbai is done.

Well I knew that It's going to surpass Princess Tower the tallest residential building in the world, but it's going to be surpassed by World one and Dream Dubai Marina and Dream Dubai Marina is close to topping out so 432 Park Ave. will be the Second tallest residential building in the world, but whose going to top out first 432 Park Ave. or World One.

Thanks for doing this "countdown" or buildings passed, I look forward to your diagram, every few days or crane jump. keep it up, I'm looking forward to it passing the likes of Woolworth and Chrysler this year.

I gotta admit I bit on the photoshopped pic.

Dream Dubai is mixed use.

Then it would look like the Waldorf!

This is a follow-up from my post a couple of weeks ago. I arranged to take the sales/marketing presentation and here are some further comments:

The movie is 4 minutes long and since you are left alone in the room I took some pics but they are pretty poor quality. There is one below with the tightrope artist Philippe Petit depicted as walking to 432 off into the distance and the tightrope magically extends only a few feet in front of him and continues to move as he walks. Really weird! Almost the entire presentation is about the "Special Experience", of what living at 432 would be like. definitely geared to out-of-towners.

A couple of other things - The mechanical floors are double height but only count as one floor and 14-16 are all double height and only count as one floor so this may be throwing off floor counts that some of you list.

Other thing that you won't like is that, as you know, they have been moving the cameras to the highest possible nearby buildings for the video shots. At some point when the building is higher the cameras will be turned off as there will be no place to set them.

What!? That's ridiculous, why remove them? They can let stay where they are and point upwards, and the 56th cam is still perfect.

Sorry, I specifically asked the question and this is direct from the horses mouth.

I still wonder if the architects could add some 2 foot tall solar panel "crowns" to the top of 432 to make it an official 1400 feet tall :-)

Perhaps it is ... but it would be a nice nod to "sustainability" (and good PR for the building)

I'm sure there's some part of the building's mechanicals that could get supplemental power from solar ... maybe the emergency stairwell lights or something ... dunno.

How much wider will 432 Park Ave be, compared to the Four Seasons?? Not much is my guess. It is going to look fantastic in the skyline once this puppy is topped out.
