This is typical for supertall towers and its all about perspective. Supertall tend to look "short" at close distance. Look at 1WTC as an example. WTC 7 looks almost as tall as 1WTC on the picture below.

...but when you look at both towers from some distance.image hosted on flickr

Indeed, even the ESB looks small from the base.

Fantastic photo, I must confess. The colors are brilliant in juxtapose with the white snow and dark cityscape. Absolutely stunning and majestic. What a city!

It looked normal sized to me. The Chrysler Building looked taller in real life, 1WTC shorter from the plaza, and BOA Tower was just fat.

tim1807,

A beautiful picture of midtown at sunset. The picture seems to be have been taken from within Central Park, at altitude, since Fifth Avenue in this one-point perspective view is clearly to the left of the vantage point of the camera. The nearest road seen crossing Central Park from east to west occurs at 72 Street, so perhaps the camera might be somewhere just north of 72 Street, perhaps at around 74, maybe 75 Street. Of course, the camera might have been zoomed in. At the altitude shown, there is nothing that tall within the boundaries of Central Park (The Metropolitan Museum of Art at 80th Street to 84th Street has nothing that tall).

Could it have been taken by a RPV (a drone, or helicopter)?

It is most likely from a helicopter or drone since there are no buildings that tall north of Central Park South.

It is a very beautiful picture

Yea I think it's done by helicopter via nyonair

It's going to look magnificent in a few years down the road with 432 Park, Steinway Tower, Nordstrom Tower, 220 Central Park West and Tower Verre gracing the skyline along central park.

Silvian Marcus, CEO, WSP Cantor Seinuk gives us a tour of 432 Park Avenue

Quote:
WAN is delighted to release an exclusive video interview with CEO of WSP Cantor Seinuk Silvian Marcus in which the charismatic engineer takes a tour of the elegant 432 Park Avenue tower. Currently rising more than 600ft over Manhattan, the residential building will reach a final height of 1,396ft to an architectural design by Rafael Vinoly.

Located a stone’s throw from the legendary Four Seasons hotel on Park Avenue, this slender giant was inspired by the regulating qualities of the Manhattan city grid.

As such, 432 Park Avenue enjoys a perfectly square floor plan with 10ft by 10ft windows punctuating its exterior to enable panoramic views from most points within the building. Unobstructed by interior columns, the 104 residences are bright and airy, bathed in natural light. The interior design was at the hand of Deborah Berke and her team.

Berke details: “The layout of each 432 Park Avenue residence recalls the grandeur and elegance of Park Avenue’s pre-war apartments, yet simultaneously establishes the paradigm for 21st century sophistication.” Vinoly was also greatly inspired by the tower’s setting during the design process, leading him to create a structure that is very much at one with its location.

He explains: “The design of the building could not be more bespoke; it is about New York and for New York. Our goal was to create something timeless which has a perennial quality that won’t go out of style.”

The team brought on by developers CIM Group and Macklowe Properties to bring this vision to life was WSP Cantor Seinuk, led by CEO Silvian Marcus. “There is a purity in the engineering,” Marcus explains, indicating a central core about 30ft by 30ft which houses the elevators and all of the services.

He continues: “The other element that is supporting the building is the outside fašade made out of beams and columns. This system of columns and beams, we call it a frame. It is very strong and it’s very powerful. The windows are just in between the columns and the beams.

"From the core backbone to the outside perimeter is about 30ft that is free of any columns, beams or any structural elements so you can have partitions as you wish or if someone wants to take the entire floor and doesn’t want partitions - he wants a loft - people can use the entire floor as they desire.”

Completion of the tower is expected in 2015.



I like the grid facade in the last photo. Looks serene and modern.
