Indeed. There are still workers not only on the top. So how can this one be complete now?

432 Park Avenue Reveals Offices and Glowing Retail Space
http://ny.curbed.com/2016/5/3/115811...ace-renderings







Quote:
The office space will be take over four floors above 40 East 57th Street, with more than 17,000 square feet of space on each floor. Thanks to Rafael Viñoly's innovative (and inspired-by-a-trash-can) building design, those offices will also have floor-to-ceiling windows and column-free floorplans. The retail, meanwhile, will be divided into three spaces: 40 East 57th Street, the Park Avenue Cube, and an underground concourse, covering a total of more than 20,000 square feet in all.

I kind of wish they went with a completely transparent cube like Apple's 5th ave flagship.

Also lol @ "Tim Lord." I hear they make great suits.

Such a freaking waste. They could have kept the historical Drake Hotel without any problems at this location, and integrate it to the complex.

no protection of historic buildings. the `white cube`is nice, but the one behind just vacuous.
