I just don't get the idea of taking an average filler midrise and stacking six (?) copies of it on top of each other. I think it looks godawful and sticks out like a sore thumb.

The aesthetics of it aren't for everyone as has been extensively catalogued here. I happen to like it quite a lot, and find the concrete-grid-as-both-structure-and-ornamental-pattern pretty brilliant. The huge windows kind of screw with my sense of scale, but I think that's more an issue in photos than in person.

However, aesthetics aside, it's not going to look out of place for long once 111 and 225 W. 57th crop up (not to mention 220 CPS, Shvo's CP tower, whatever happens with the Park Lane.)

Check out the comments from page 32 onwards when the first render came out. Back then I was one of the (very) few who liked it, because the renders showed it on its own. If only I had known how overbearing the real thing would be...

While I have not seen it in person, I must say it looks considerably better in street-level pictures than in aerials.

I don't know about you guys, but I think 432 Park Avenue is pure New York. It is so much more New York than one57 will ever be.

Agreed. I don't like One 57. It's too cliche. Trying to be different by being mundane. On the other hand 432 fits in perfectly.

and I think 432 is a much more solid effort.

No worries!!! I can assure you that your are not alone! Just about every Architecture/ classical music/food critic in NYC despises One57. You belong to a big club and definitely not a loner.

Also, I would not use the word "mundane" to describe One57 at BlackMarbles post. While I love 432 Park and think it fits perfectly for a super tower on Park, I would have understood more if the word "mundane/banal" would have been used to describe 432 Park quite honestly.

The sides may be a fad from the 00s (random cladding) but the North and South sides are very NY, in my opinion.

Long time follower here. 1st time to post. The core looks like it is up to the 88th apparent level or actual floor 83 at 1364' The last core jump i believe. The perimeter looks like it is at the 85th apparent level with 5 jumps to go.

Maybe I'm crazy but I think I saw the thing peeking over the horizon, from Sunnyside Blvd in Plainview...

Saying this is pretty cheesy but I think almost any highrise and up built in New York is great, including 432PA and One57.

Could the Four Seasons be moving to 432 Park Avenue?

http://pagesix.com/2014/09/25/could-...2-park-avenue/
Quote:
Could famed power dining spot the Four Seasons be moving to a new Park Avenue home?
Eagle-eyed sources on Tuesday spotted restaurant co-owners Julian Niccolini and Alex von Bidder in hard hats at the construction site of 432 Park Ave., which has been billed as “the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere.”
The building, rising 1,396 feet in the air, will reportedly include a restaurant on a lower floor. The condo tower is being developed by California-based CIM Group and New York real estate powerhouse Harry Macklowe.
Niccolini and von Bidder told us of their 432 Park tour in a statement: “Harry is a lifelong friend of the Four Seasons. When he offered us a tour, we jumped at the chance to take selfies for Facebook.”
The Four Seasons has been in the Seagram Building on Park Avenue since 1959, but its lease expires in July 2016.
Niccolini and von Bidder are in negotiations with landlord Aby Rosen, but many have speculated the restaurant would move out of the landmarked space once its lease is up.
