Just noticed that the construction elevator on the east side of the building is starting to come down... (click for larger, and to peak in the windows ):

This building actually looks pretty big in the skyline. I'm like what the hell, when I see it lol.

I've been wondering about that too, and I've been trying to keep my my eyes open to see if I can 'catch them in the act'... I think I may have finally figured it out: They seem to be using a small hoist mounted on top of one of the elevator cars to remove sections of the tower, then carry them down in the car - you can see one on the floor of the car on the right in this picture:



Here's another pic - in this one you can see a piece of the tower hanging from the hoist (click for full size):

Nice catch
Interesting to see, it must be really windy up there, they have balls.

I wonder when the drums will be lit. When the first tenants move in?

a LLC already tossed out $18,116,000.00 for an apartment...

http://www.6sqft.com/432-park-avenue...-closing-at-m/

Quote:
[...]
The unit is #35B, a massive 4,003-square-foot, three-bedroom pad with four-and-a-half baths, a private elevator landing, and 10-foot by 10-foot windows providing southern and western exposures with park views. Documents show that the palatial home was purchased via a LLC, “432 PARKVIEW.”

It's very tall, it's skinny... Yet I love how in the last pics it seem to fit in so well with the other buildings. It's basically what I love about the New York skyline in general: it all looks rather "natural". In some other cities you've got nothing and then bam, all those supertalls. For me, that just does not feel right.

Maybe this has been answered before but I don't have a week to go over 867 pages. Will this building have any special external lighting other than street level?
