Time to say the final goodbyes to the core. Had fun watching it lead the race with the perimeter

Does that mean we change the title to T/O?

No, there should still be another 2 perimeter jumps above the topping out of the core

T/O?
EDIT: Nevermind, I think there's still more perimeter until T/O.

it will be sad that this is done because it was fun watching it grow from foundation into the show stopper it is today but bigger towers are on the horizon and ill watch 432 park finally not be so alone.

432 Park Avenue is so near completion of the superstructure. According to my observations, there is just the parapet wall, comprised of two perimeter rises left. Two American flags hang on the north and east faces, and I am sure the remaining faces will be similarly graced.

Currently, a double-height floor is under construction, as evidenced by the daylight just visible through the topmost exterior form and just below the spandrel beam below the exterior form. Meanwhile, a flurry of interior activities continue out of sight, and window deliveries and installation have kept pace with the rise of the superstructure.

The core has been completed to its full height.

This has been a fun building to observe being constructed, from foundation work to its current height. It is not known if the webcams will remain in place to observe the dismantling of the crane, the completion of the forecourt and the accessory (retail) building on Park Avenue, etc.

As this tower nears topping-out, all eyes will shift attention to 225 W. 57 St (Nordstrom Tower). It would also be great if the developer (Gary Barnett) would have a webcam (or cams!) so we can observe that tower rise. But until then, let's continue watching 432 Park Avenue until the cams finally sign off.

As 432 Park Avenue nears the topping-out phase, there seems to interesting activity down below, on 56 Street. The area in front of the delivery point had been cleared during the day of construction materials and trash cans, and a flurry of activity took place. It appears that perhaps some kind of "ceremony", if you will, might take place.

As an aside, I wanted to include this with my previous post, but for whatever reason I couldn't, hence this additional post. Sorry!!

I wasn't planning to post an update to my stop-motion video until it topped out, but with those giant flags, I just couldn't resist...:
