I was driving on rt. 3 east today and you can see 432 park avenue directly in front of you essentially. Couldn't get any pictures but, compared to One57, you can tell it still has about 450 feet to go. But once it is topped it its easily going to dominate over everything in Midtown just as 1WTC does in downtown. This link below takes you to the exact spot. Picture a roof almost equal in height to the tip of the ESB directly to the right of One57. That gives a sense of how tall it will appear from that area.

core jump and perimeter jump in progress!!...The core is now on Level 62 (961ft/292.9m) and the perimeter is at Level 60 (930ft/283.5m). The next two levels is the mechanicals so it should slow down like it has previously

Wow it is really shouldering it's way above the skyline...redefining the the skyline of midtown...the scale of the windows is really becoming more and more evident compared to surrounding buildings.
They are really cranking today taking advantage if the good weather ...big pour...at least 4 concrete trucks lined up this am plus a couple flat beds with more rebar assemblies.

Wow, in the next few weeks I have a feeling the media is going to start getting involved because everyone is going to start noticing it's impact on the skyline. I have a weird feeling though, that people are going to use the skyscraper as a symbol of New York's massive inequality. Don't ask me why, but I just have a feeling.

That doesn't seem like a weird expectation to me, regardless of one's opinion on the subject.

432 park will become one of the more famous buildings in NYC or even America. Because of this and it's all residential status, it will become a symbol of the ultra-rich and become a lightning rod for personal beliefs on the subject.
