I don't think it's hit most people yet how tall this thing will be, but still won't stick out too much in a place like Manhattan, partly because of the skinny width... and it won't even be the highest roof in NYC for very long.

Please build an antenna or something on top of it What a shame that this thing is being built while a marvelous building like Tower Verre is not even approved.

432Park doesn't need an antenna.

The glass looks super blue

It'll be weird that window washers can see into people's apartments, unless it has robots like the Sears Tower.

The Sears tower has robots to clean the windows? That's weird because Taipei 101 has humans cleaning the windows, and that was completed in 2004. In comparison, the Sears Tower was completed in 1974? (maybe 1973) But anyway, that could be completely unrelated, as the Empire State Building has better lighting than the Jin Mao Tower.

And I'm a little surprised about 432 Park Avenue's glass. I really was looking forward for it being a whitish color. But it's blue. I'm sure this question has been asked before, but is the bluish color due to it reflecting the sky, or is it tinted blue? Or both? I think it's tinted blue, because 432 Park Avenue's glass is transparent, not reflective. I think it should be reflective, but it'd be even more blue.

432 Park Avenue is getting so tall that I can notice it a little from 20 miles away. From 10 miles away, it probably is really noticeable because I can see its color, not just the silhouette. In December, it looked like part of One57, so I couldn't see it. I just wish that it was a little more skinny. I remember when we were all like, "OMG this is so skinny!" like 10-year old girls but now it doesn't look thin compared to the Steinway Tower. Actually looks a little fat to me.

I just think it's blue protective film which will eventually be removed.

It's either black or colourless glass, and the new row has a blue protective covering.

I like colorless glass better for this building only. It'll fit more with its style. But blue or black glass would look interesting.

Imagine if it had orange glass, like the netting it has now. I would like it that way.

Are they going to make model apartments on the floor with the glass? I know it was a strategy that they used for 1 57 that strategy seemed successful.

I don't think the occupants will like the orange glass.
Probably not any other colour either.

That's why curtains were invented. And robots? I recently saw a video were there was a guy washing the windows on the Willis Tower.
