This thing is already looking great at the height it's already at and has much more to grow.

Here you go..."zoomed out" a couple weeks ago to give some more room to climb...I think there might be enough sky in the picture now to hold the whole building:

NIce. It will grow by roughly 400-500ft, so the last frame should be ok.

I was wondering when it surpassed the Citygroup Center. Turns out it hasn't yet!

How close is this to supertall status! Now just 69 feet and we'll have a new supertall in New York CIty! Once that 20 cm is completed (which is without a doubt in the VERY near future, obviously) 432 Park Avenue will be the seventh tallest (completed) building in the city (not counting 4 World Trade Center, which it will surpass soon anyway) and the 11th tallest topped out building in the city, according to wikipedia (which this times appears to be accurate.

Here's a list of the tallest buildings in New York with 432 Park Avenue (if it were to be completed and top out at this height):

1. Empire State Building (1250 ft)
2. Bank of America Tower (1200 ft)
3. Chrysler Building AND Times Square Building (both 1046 ft)
5. 70 Pine Street (952 ft)
6. The Trump Building (927 ft)
7. Citigroup Center (915 ft)
8. 432 Park Avenue (914 ft)

It will surpass the Citigroup Center, the Trump Building, and 70 Pine Street very soon.

And here's a list of the tallest topped out buildings in New York City (which will be important for the future list of tallest completed buildings in New York City):

1. One World Trade Center (1776 ft)
2. Empire State Building (1250 ft)
3. Bank of America Tower (1200 ft)
4=. Chrysler Building AND Times Square Building (both 1046 ft)
6. One57 (1004 ft)
7. Four World Trade Center (977 ft)
8. 70 Pine Street (952 ft)
9. The Trump Building (927 ft)
10. The Citigroup Center (915 ft)
11. 432 Park Avenue (914 ft)

432 Park Avenue is one of the only towers in which I got to see the whole construction timeline, and now I'm OBSESSED with its construction. I just love the blue glass close up and how it's light up in such a beautiful blue color at night when close up (but those are just construction lights). The building is very noticeable in the skyline now.

It kind of boggles my mind that this still has 500ft to go yet already looks immense in the NYC skyline.

This project has really grown on me.

Have my eyes tricked me? I actually saw the core rise earlier. Now, it appears that they actually lowered the core form down to its previous level. It also appears that that either concrete is being poured into the core form, or perhaps the concrete lines are being grouted in preparation for column pours. A mistake?

WTF, it actually has

HOWEVER, what I did notice earlier is that when the core form was rising, at one point, one side was rising whilst the other not and it was slightly wonky... I wonder if there's a malfunction?
