At least the mechanical segments are going to be lit up at night. I don't know if you consider light an ornamentation (I would) but it's going to be pretty spectacular if the renders are any indication.

I'm calling it NYC's chimney from now on, since outside of Manhattan where the windows just look like bricks, it looks like a factory chimney.[/QUOTE]

Dude you might be on to something here scrapesalot! London has a nickname for almost all of their towers ie: the shard, the gherkin, the walkie talkie and so on. The chimney... Haha not bad

^ Eye candy. Love its stark simplicity juxtaposed with that more ornate older building.

It evokes a lot of feelings and opinions...(that means it's a hit) It's just perfect in it's simplicity and it's complexity... and awesomness !

As for 432 I'm not dismissing the simplicity at all, and as I've said I appreciate the efficiency with which this building achieves its primary purpose - Make a bunch of money by framing spectacular views for the inhabitants. In that sense it's a high example of form follows function.

But as I've also countered I feel buildings must observe context and contribute to the public space where deemed, and to this end we're simply seeing the latest variation of Segrams or Corbu's fancies that make efficient construction but cold viewing. If this building were copied again and again I guess it would be roundly criticized because at that point the elegance of simplicity comes across more machine like and boring. (My opinion, anyway)

Put another way, recall Vitruvius' definition of beauty and I think something more could be added to this structure to enhance the beauty of this building. Something as simple as an additional two levels but without windows so as to provide a visible cap to the structure, perhaps. Or some ornamentation framing the open mechanical floors to help celebrate the segmentation.

But that's just me. I don't dismiss anyone else loving it or hating it. Cheers.
I think once they remove the protective netting from the mechanical levels, you will be able to see the cylinder-type interior enclosure [used to disrupt wind vortices]. I think the juxtaposition of the "interior" curved massing and the "exterior" orthogonal geometry will compliment each other nicely. I also think the cylinders will give the building a slight art deco touch which will ultimately make the structure blend seamlessly with it's surrounding neighbors.

It doesn't look anything like bricks, or a factory chimney. Not even close.

Your opinion, based on all the collective events and experiences in your life. I see things differently.

I guess, but a brick and a smokestack aren't really subjective things. They're objective terms, and this building looks like neither.

You might as well say it looks like an elephant.

The supertall towers of billionaires row will add to the iconography of central park.

I'm not sure about the Art Deco connection, and quite frankly it will be a long time before anything this tall "seamlessly" blends in with the neighbors! However I agree the openings at those levels should help and am anxious to see 1-2 of those uncovered.
