It's really starting to dominate...more so than I thought to be honest, considering how skinny it is...and it's still growing.

saw 432 Park from the Turnpike again today. Its height looked just about even with the tip of the ESB's spire.

ESB to the antenna is 1,454 feet. 432 Park Avenue to its complete height will be about 60 feet short of it.

Come on New York needs a 2000ft building. This building with its narrow width is going to be spectacle when it is complete.

Whatever it is, It's quite thick? Impressive to say the least.

Hey! & wow this building is massive, and it still has just alittle over 40 meters to go! This is my first time posting on this forum so i would just like to share my opinion about it overall if you guys dont mind
I really admire the minimalist design and the renderings really do it justice. Right now im not a big fan of it because of all the construction netting and dirty concrete make it unattractive, but once its T/O and all the windows are installed i believe this will certainly be a defining aspect of the city

Does anyone know how many more floors 432 PA has to go? It's just finishing its last set of mechanical floors so I'm guessing 12 more? But I could be way off.

Just 12 floors and this thing is already T/O. It has risen really fast over the last 12 months.
