432 Park Avenue is making its impact on the skyline now from many vantage points. As it climbs quickly towards its lofty goal, with three core form rises this week alone, including today, it appears that a celebration is in order.

In the loading area just to the right, adjacent to the future retail area on Park Avenue, tables are set up, along with a mock-up of the building's facade as a backdrop. I am guessing that officials and the developer Harry Macklowe will be in attendance.

A celebration? What for? Isn't the tower still 250 feet from topping out?

And just to show how fast the tower is rising, I have an old picture. Can you tell from which month, week, or even day it was taken?



By me

Awesome, that'll make it 354 meters or 1 163 feet tall and have 75 apparent floors

My mother is visiting and staying in the Marriott at 1717 Broadway. The 35th floor terrace has some pretty epic views!

I am guessing the "party" has started without us. The 56th Street cam has been shut off, so we cannot enjoy the proceedings. Oh well, hope the party at 432 Park Avenue was a blast.

On another related topic, the 59th Street has been inoperable now for about a week. Hopefully it will return soon. It seemed that it would be a simple operation to remotely aim it upwards, as both it and the Park Avenue cams had been repositioned automatically at lunchtime between 12:00 and 1:00PM away from the tower, and repositioned to the tower afterward.

Apparently, the 56th Street cam currently has a closeup of the coming party. So maybe we have all been invited. Let's see if the cam stays on for the upcoming proceedings.

Wait, the 59th street cam is inoperable? Whew, I thought it was just me.

And also, why the celebration? The tower isn't topping out just yet.

It must have been a thank-you lunch for the crew.

I have a feeling we'll see clear Berenholz pics posted to the main site.

Macklowe Adds Midtown Retail Property

By Rayna Katz
July 11, 2014

Quote:
Macklowe Properties—along with an unidentified foreign equity partner—is buying the retail space at 432 Park Ave. for approximately $450 million from CIM Group, according to The Real Deal.

Led by chairman Harry Macklowe, Macklowe is widely described as the co-developer with CIM Group of the condominium tower. The former company was the driving force behind
assembling the land above the site on which the high-priced residential condo with retail at the base is now rising. But in 2010 his lenders forced a sale of the property for more than
$200 million less than the value of the loans on the property and insiders believe Macklowe’s equity stake was wiped out, the Deal reports.

My guess, is that People who have 0 interest, in buildings, skyscrapers, probably, walking down the street, the last couple of years, say to one another,, "What the Fu*# is that, and why?" People at my job, have no clue there's a new World Trade Center..
BeanHead's photos show the magnitude....
Not trying to ruffle any feathers here, but in the next 6 month's,, 432 will be King of NY and 2nd in Country, (Rooftop's people)..
If Kanto's chart is correct, this is now the 5th tallest in the Country, passing (AON in Chicago, a Beautiful 1136 foot FLAT roof type in Chicago) just roughly 3 meter's short of Trump in Chicago,,

Each for their own I guess. I think this is one of the more intriguing buildings rising in New York right now. But I still got to see those technical levels drums uncovered. Better yet lit at night

I was looking at a tower under construction in London and realized that just it's core is about the same width and depth as 432. It made me appreciate even more how thin this building is.

It is a combination of a basic, rugged facade with a high quality interior. No doubt that this won't look cheap at all, but top class instead.
