I was measuring on the 40th floor of the big black office tower on 46th and 6th, and from up there this thing is still a monster. I pictured it twice as tall as it is now and realized that it could end up being the flashiest tower in midtown through height and location alone.

And by the way folks, when the sun hits this building it glows white and the glass is flawless.

This photo from Vinoly's recent discussion was posted by NYGuy on SSP. It doesn't mention hotel floors, even though they were listed as taking up floors 13-19 in the building in the old blueprints. The illustration below shows 22 apparent levels, which at 15.5 feet per level would bring the portion of the building shown to 341 feet. I believe the residences were supposed to begin at this height.

It's a view from the top! Park Avenue apartments will soar 1,396 feet

Quote:
By Matt Chaban
February 27, 2014


They say bigger isn’t always better. But when it comes to the tower at 432 Park Ave., bigger is the entire point.

Architect Rafael Viñoly was well aware of the importance of going big when designing the 1,396-foot residential skyscraper currently under-construction at the southwest corner of Park and 57th St.

“The building has no competition,” he said at a recent lecture hosted by the Skyscraper Museum. “The only important thing to me is that it’s taller than the Freedom Tower.”

Yes, One World Trade Center has its 408-foot spire, making it the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. But in terms of actual floors, 432 Park will beat it by 28 feet when it’s finished next year.

Better yet, someone will be calling the tower’s top floors home — and not just paying to visit an observation deck. Last year, a mysterious buyer signed a contract for the $95 million penthouse.

To claim one of the other full-floor residences on the top 10 floors, going for $74.5 million and up, you’d better act fast. The 104-unit tower is already more than half sold. The cheapest apartments start at $7 million.

The building also just passed the halfway mark, at 48 of 96 floors, as these exclusive photos show.

As it surpasses 750 feet, 432 Park is already the 25th-tallest building in the city. It’s only just begun to emerge from the weeds of Midtown to take its place as the tallest skyscraper in town. It’s also the most expensive.

So what does the best building money can buy offer besides views? The interiors, by star designer

Deborah Berke, feature antiqued parquet floors and bathroom vanities made of a single slab of marble — with the sinks carved directly into them.

The 12.5-foot ceilings are framed by 10-foot-square windows with just one pane.

Because really, nice as these apartments are, it’s all about those soon-to-be stratospheric views.
More like 15.5 foot ceilings, but whatever.

Love this pic!

Other than how it looks photoshopped because it is such a different shade than everything else

Kind of, I guess? It's completely covered in white and orange, so it should stand out like that. Maybe somebody amped up the brightness on it, but not egregiously.

432 Park Avenue grows steadily, although activity has slowed due to cold weather and precipitation. Due to high winds yesterday, cranes were shut down, with little activity up top, although interior trades continued working. Today, one of the outrigger beams were being placed. As of my count, the current completed apparent floor is floor 48, just below the next mechanical floor.

[QUOTE]Nah, One57 isn't directly to the west of 432Park. It's almost northwest. One Worldwide Plaza, which it will overtake by the next jump, is directly to the west./QUOTE]

One Worldwide Plaza is located between 49th and 50th Street at 8th Avenue, and not due directly west of 432 Park Avenue. It is due southwest.

Despite the fact that these floors are not even built yet, the top 10 will house full-floor penthouses asking $74.5 million and up. One of the tower's penthouses went into contract for $95 million last year, which makes it a contender for most expensive residential real estate transaction in the city. At least a year from completion, the beyond-luxe 104-unit tower is already half sold. The Real Deal reports that the unfinished structure is already the most expensive property in the city, commanding an average of $6,894 a square foot.
