The color rendering here is very reminiscent of the American Radiator Building. The charcoal grey and gold highlights.

Wow that lighting is so damn classy, this tower is such a great addition to the skyline . Keep up with the updates, I'm looking for a new wallpaper.
Can't wait for the other 57th street scrapers to rise.

This turned out great. Exceeded my initial expectations drastically. The night lighting scheme makes it look very futuristic.
Penthouse interiors. A bit too beige for me, but still nice.

Are there any pictures of the arrival court? The renderings showed a large glass canopy but I've not seen it posted here yet.

C'est fini!
Nice grouping. Under construction is 520 Park Ave. When complete 520 should top out between GM and 432.

I guess there isn't a need for a technical floor there but the windows are inset to preserve the uniform look of the facade.


Edit:
I found this picture of a floor plan that indicates that they are mechanical floors (if it is true) but somehow they must be different from the others cause they require glass windows..
I don't know why or how they are different..(?)

Based on that diagram, the two inset floors (7 and 8) actually appear to be the Dining/Conference Center, and the mechanicals are floors 9 and 10 right above them, with the "normal" glass treatment, the same as all the residential floors.

For the Dining/Conference Center, I guess it doesn't matter that the windows are pushed inwards, because there's no expectation for it to match the residential interiors with the bay seating. But since floors 7 and 8 have an actual non-mechanical, they can't be lit up the same way as the higher, open floors ... but I do wonder if they'll just leave the lights on all night after an event is over, to create an illusion that it matches?

And that's all without mentioning that even though the floor 7 and 8 recessed windows do fit with the 12+2 pattern, the lowermost volume with the retail and amenities, is only half of one of the upper residential volumes. So really, the pattern goes 12+2+12+2+12+2+12+2+12+2+6...

It's all a little odd. But then, the whole thing just works when you look at it in its totality, so I'm not going to wrack my brain to hard about it.
