The concrete will be glazed once the building is T/O.

Disappointment at losing one's view means they shouldn't live in NY? I suspect if the tenants of the upper floors of 432 were to lose their view to Central Park they might feel pretty aggrieved.

But it was an office tower, and even still it's not like they should ever expect their vew to remain forever.

I agree they can't expect it stay forever, doesn't mean they can't feel bad about it.



Now, if the person buying the unit directly across from her office is a disgusting fat guy who walks around naked eating Cheetos plucked from his back hair, then she might have cause for worker's comp!

Nope, they will simply move to a better place with better view, 5th avenue would be a good start to find a nice apartment with 180 degree central park view....

Everybody knows that everybody will die eventually, still, people mourns the death of other people.

It may not be the worst thing in the world, and she may not do anything about it, but she, or any person, has all the right to lament and express disappointment about the losing of her view. There is nothing wrong with that. I know that I myself, although would enjoy seeing the construction of the tower, would lament the lose of the view too.

I just find this to be an incredibly ugly, drab building to occupy such a prominent spot in the skyline. That height was truly wasted on such a poor design. I know I'll probably be lambasted for my remarks, but I doubt I'm the only one who finds this building to be a disappointment.

I never really like the original WTC twins architecturally. I miss the hell out of them, but I never liked their design.

Funny how one either can find beauty in clean design, pattern and form, or they can't. There's very little middle ground. The twins were some of the most beautiful structures that ever existed in my opinion, and 432 is also an interesting building. Just the facade could use a cleaning is all.

We are all stunned on how fast they building 432 Park ave. But when you think a bit, you'll realize that nothing essentially changed over past hundred years. They toppled ESB in two years, they toplled Chrysler bld, 40 Wall st. and American int. bld practically in one or two years as well.

Well, I guess the primary difference is that none of those buildings are toothpicks! (I mean that in the best way possible.)

RE: recent events. Kinda can't believe aquablue got banned... A few voices of dissent are good IMO. Say what you will, aquablue was no RW - not by a long shot. Pretty sure Robert is back in his 6th recent incarnation, though, so nothing is permanent.

They recently completed a mech level and there's one last one to go correct? The last mech level doesn't have the netting out like the others further down on the tower I wonder why?
