According to my observations, the last floor poured is actual floor 75 (apparent floor 80). The last floor slab poured was on 8-18, with the perimeter forms raised the next day, along with a crane jump and core pour.

Here I include my latest updated progress drawing.



Today, it appears that the perimeter spandrel beams are being poured with the CPB and bucket. Columns and core were poured yesterday (8-21), with the core form rising this morning.

It's playing hide and seek!







Needless to say, this is dominating the skyline and poking out all over the place.

How far is it up now? Can't believe it's almost topped out so quickly!

432 is easily the most prominent building on the skyline as seen from the Tappan Zee Bridge.

Lovely pics, but there's one thing that left me a bit wondering after I saw these - 432 Park definitely is a prominent spot in the skyline by now, but if you look closely in these particular pics, the top of the core is about the same height of the tip of the BOfA Tower, which is 366 m. It's also still slightly below the 102nd floor of the ESB. However 432 Park is only a few meters shy of the 400 meter-mark by now, so it should stand a bit taller in these pics.
Now what I'm asking, is this simply a matter of the perspective or is the ESB and the other skyscrapers in its vicinity (I'm talking BOfA, 4 Times Square etc.) located on higher ground than 432 Park? I'm not familiar with the elevation in particular parts of Manhattan, so maybe someone can help me out

I don't know precisely about the elevation (my understanding is that generally the 57th St corridor is on higher ground than lower midtown), but there's definitely perspective to take into consideration. 432 is significantly further east than ESB and BofA.

It's definitely perspective. It's clear the picture is taken from the south friom the Jersey side because you clearly see One57 and 432 Park in the pic being obviously located on 57th street.. ESB and Bofa are closer to NJ, while 432 Park is further East. I think the pic is taken almost parallel to the ESB.

I had a rider take a shot from there today, but it was a blur.

But ya, it sticks out from the crowd. That's about 20 miles away.

Looks like it is already the tallest in midtown.
