Well when the Nordstrom Tower (225 West 57th Street) is complete, and if the Hudson Spire is actually built to its proposed height, then I guess 432 Park Avenue would be the 3rd highest roof in the city. But not the 4th in any case in the near future.

Correction: I misread. It said 7th supertall. But even so, wouldn't 432 Park Avenue be the 8th existing supertall? The 4th supertall in NYC by roof is correct though, after ESB, 1WTC, and One 57.

Guys, 4th to the roof means the 4th building in NYC to have a roof height of 300m+ excluding the former WTC.

Gentlemen,

Yesterday, I posted the following on SSP:

Here is where we are as of today. Although the exterior forms have been raised to the next level when the last floor slab was poured (July 22), with columns and spandrel beam pours taken place today, the actual floor we are at is floor 70 (apparent floor 75). I do not count the as-of-yet poured floor, even if the exterior forms have been raised, as often the forms are raised even as the floor slab is being poured. Five floor slabs have been poured so far this month, with the possibility that another floor may be poured tomorrow (Saturday), and perhaps maybe breaking the record for floors poured for any month if seven floors are poured by the thirty-first of this month. The months of April, May, and June saw 6 floor slabs poured each month.

Here are two drawings I have done, representing our current status:



The building section drawing above compares the current status on the right to the top portion of the completed building, with the slab pour dates for this month shown on the left drawing. Note however on the drawing that the the exterior form has been raised, with the notation to the right of the building under construction indicating Next floor to be formed.The figures to the right of the building under construction drawing are the elevations that the city views are shown on the 432 Park Avenue website. The 1250' seen to the right of the complete building represents the roof height of the ESB. On the building section drawing, the numbers within the building on the left are the actual floors, while the numbers on the right within the building are the apparent floors.



The drawing above shows just the top portion of the complete building, with the slab to slab height dimensions shown to the left, and the remaining dimension left to top out on the right. Please note, that there are 12 floors in between the mechanical floors. On the actual building, note the projecting netting on the building faces. The window opening just below the netting, and the one just above, are the two open (drum) mechanical floors (on this drawing, actual floors 58 and 59 and 72 and 73). Going by the dates of pours (I have the floor pour dates going back to 11/29/12), we are at the 70th actual floor (75 apparent floors).

As the information I posted above on SSP was done yesterday, I am updating the current progress now. As predicted, the next floor slab is currently being poured, as the East exterior form rises, so now the actual floor being poured is 71 (apparent floor 76) and the remaining dimension to top out is now 232'-6". Typically, slab pours start near the crane tower, and proceed in a counterclockwise direction around the core (half of the south, then east, north, west, then remaining half of the south slab), with the east facing exterior form rising first. This makes six floor slabs poured this month, equaling the number of floors cast for the previous three months. As mentioned earlier, there is the possibility that a production record might be broken this month. As pouring of the floor slab commenced early this morning, it is possible that a core pour might also take place today.

I didn't realize there was still an entire section of floors to go after the current one! It already looks so tall

As architecturally bland as I find this building, its sheer height is something rather remarkable. And how increasingly consistent its ascent has been is something of a phenomenon itself. It seems like yesterday when this was still a small stub just barely peaking over the "short" high rises. Absolutely breathtaking.

Lots of records there ...
How about fastest build? Has any other supertall risen this fast to over 400m? I just can't believe that it is almost done.

Yeah, ESB raped this. 1 year and 45 days for it. This started around August or September in 2012. Chrysler was finished in 2 years, which was very slow for its time, but this won't be done as quickly as it was.

In fact, I think there was a 10 day period where ESB rose 14 floors.

Back then when America had the determination to build her skyscrapers so that they would be way, way ahead of everybody else. That being said, 432 Park Avenue is still awesome.
