I agree. I don't think this building is that skinny. Great addition to the skyline!

432 Park Avenue stands 961 feet as of yesterday's update.

This tower is HUGE. And it still has more than 400 feet to go.

I agree, I see no reason why 432Park deserves it.

The colors remind me of when 1 WTC was red white and blue, only this time it is NYC's colors.

The blue-covered glass really reveals the verticality of the design when you look at it from the base, since the columns are easier to see. This thing will look unbelievable from that angle when it is finished. And it still has pretty much 1/3 of its height left to go!!

It is the former Dutch republican Oranje Blanje Blue, or: Orange, White and Blue, in its VOC time when New York was Nieuw Amsterdam.
