Nice forest. Good to have something like that near the city.

Oh it looks cool with the transparent parapet! Hopefully once glass is added that effect won't go away

What makes it unique is its height and the fact that its a super-skinny. It doesnt need anymore embellishments to make it stand out.

I can tell it was meant to look slightly plain on purpose like it was built a long time ago, almost like it blends in yet you take a double look at it. These architects are great and are thinking ahead.

Sometimes standing out isn't a good thing. Just saying.

Curious as to how you came about that inference, since you're the first I've heard mention that?

This is one of the best designed towers ever. It's perfectly sized for its use (ultra-luxury apartments) and its place, I think this tower will serve as base for the design of a lot of towers, anything you want to change may make it more beautiful or cool, but it is hardly likely it will make it more functional. Appart from aesthetics, this tower is almost perfect, and I'm glad there's nothing extra added to make it look cooler so it's easier to see how perfect it is, and why (you can see the structure dimensions, the technical floors, the floor height, etc.)

Its so amazing, but does anyone else feel for the loss of nostalgia now that the likes of the Empire State look a bit irrelevant and puny?? It makes me sad

Well put.

This is what I've been trying to say all along. I concur fully.

Not in the slightest bit. It doesn't take anything away from the older icons, they are legends, it just makes New York more greater. More exciting & more exotic.

I am predicting that the look of the tower will change dramatically when netting on the open air floors are removed. This will be especially true when backlit or silhouetted against the sky. This will break up the monotony of the facade and make it seem less flat. Instead of a single rectangle from bottom to top, it will be a stack of segments with space in between.

Indeed I think it will be the defining feature of the tower. Besides just being tall, these open floors will up what makes 432 unique. There are other buildings with somehat similar designs but certainly not many.

Agreed. I think it's still much too early to pass final judgement. I mean, just think of how big a visual difference taking down the orange netting from the communications ring made for 1WTC. That was a fractional change compared to what we will still see here.
