Well this tower has now been posted on the Uni Lad Facebook page... A bit random, but it goes to show how much attention and coverage this is getting! Glad it's having time to shine!

It has gone a long way... Nice progress.
It's been a long time since I paid attention to it... Was a bit of a surprise to me. But this is going off topic...



New York really is booming ! Getting all kinds of new looks and architectural marvels.

This building has been receiving a lot of publicity over the past few days, In one of the national newspapers, and on a few websites (linked on facebook)

I even had someone at work as if i'd seen this new super tower with a $$$ apartment at the top.

Glass cladding on 56/Park building is now up on the first floor they should have most of the structure covered within a week. Someone asked about use? Only bottom floor and maybe a mezzanine will be retail but all other floors are all mechanical looks to be for the Garage spaces below.

Nice to see it finally just about top out. I love how it just keeps growing and the ratio is now appearing insane. Reminds me of the photos of Princess Tower in a lot of ways, thanks ILNY. Beautiful day there too

Wow that shot from central park is pretty epic looking. The contrast between the trees in the park and midtown has always made for a dramatic picture. It's looks as if manhattan is a city in the middle of a forrest in the middle if nowhere. Now with 432 and one 57 seemingly dwarfing the towers that were so striking less than five years ago... It's that much more futuristic looking. And with 111 and nordstrom coming it's only going to get crazier.

Such a beautiful tower. Loving the simplicity.

I had no idea it would dominate the skyline like that.

I bet if they ever remake 'American Psycho' Patrick Bateman would live here.

Looks like 432 Park Ave. is getting more attention than WTC at top-out. I personally see 432 Park Ave. as better example of engineering, innovation, and American pride.
