They should rename this Building the Manhattan Obelisk, because it now is starting to look like an obelisk, as you would have seen in the times of the ancient Egyptians whose cities were dominated by a myriad of fantastic obelisks.

Bill Gates meeting a history professor from Australia at the Four Seasons Hotel. Looks like they are on the 5th floor or so, to judge by 432 Park out the window.

432 Park Avenue is now on the home stretch, with not too much left before topping out. On this day, 9-11-14, as I observe and remember those lost thirteen years ago, I also look at where 432 Park Avenue is, and where it was on this date one year ago.

On this day a year ago, concrete was being poured for the floor slab representing the actual floor 24 (apparent floor 29), today, after working on the double-height space and forming and pouring the next floor slab, the building is at the actual floor79 (apparent floor 84). Yesterday's work included a perimeter pour, core pour, and partial floor slab pour. Today had a core form rise, which is perhaps only two more jumps more to complete the core walls. Column rebar was set for the next level, the exterior forms were raised once again, and a large concrete pour took place.

A year ago:



A diagram I have done for the current state of progress. Sorry for the vertical orientation: stupid computers and technology!!


And as it looks today:




In the past year, this building has grown at a rapid pace, and it now stands proud on the skyline. It has 93 feet (28.34 meters) left before topping out.

Your Mom has a better eye than most contributors. Lol
Come to think of it, that might be the best street level shot I've seen.

It's actually from my uncle's office. Not sure what floor he's on, but definitely not street level.

I can tell this is going to be one of my favorite towers when it's finished. I love how the white concrete looks when you see it from far away, like in the first picture.

This thing is ridiculously tall and drawing attention from everywhere to look up at it. I can see it clearly from my dorm room in Newark!
