Is that the final glass color without the protective plastic sheathing?

Finally the upper floor of the building is getting glass place in it, the glass looks great without the plastic protection, I cant wait for a few more months when the Tower is complete in means of the facade.

PS
does anybody know when Nordstrom Tower will be complete, I know Nordstrom, 111 west 57th and Tower Verre are all in the ground stages currently. Can not wait for it to be complete, skyline will be one of the worlds best.

It seems to me that the Potain crane that was erected back on 10-26-2013 may be coming down. This picture, courtesy of 57th&1st (thanks!) seems to be a clue, with red and white boom sections seen on site.

[QUOTE=57th&1st;123330147]Some pics from today - click for full size...:



A closeup at the top of the building shows a portion of the red boom section just visible, while the boom of the Potain is horizontal, possibly indicating its imminent removal.

Intentional, most likely. I'm not sure of the name of the building behind it, can any New Yorkers help? If we knew the name of it I bet we could look up the building's history.

It doesn't really matter because like the PanAm/MetLife Building, 432 Park Avenue will be despised by everyone in due course.

Don't think that will be the case at all. It may take some warming to and maybe by and of itself maybe wouldn't work but as part of a diverse Central Park area skyline where the major towers are all contrasts of each other and nothing quite like New York City has ever seen 432 Park will blend in and be generally accepted even if not well loved by most in due time.

It's not about the look of the tower, its about the view looking out.

I think we just solved what Viñoly was really trying to accomplish: 432 Park represents what every straight male is thinking during springtime in New York.
