There are quite a few super skinny towers like this in Hong Kong. They leave quite an impression. For me, I think I would suffer from vertigo living or working on the top of this.

Tallest block towers have. World one which is over 400m is also designed to have balconies, and even still look great with them (unlike tallest block towers).

with the WTC spire thrown out, and the antenna put in. Then they'll seriusly have to re-consider the design!

WOW! That's SO beautiful! Very different from what's out there, with the same "look at me" (ugly) buildings. New York strikes back!

Indeed, NYC strikes back today's aesthetics and creates a humongous 1960's monstrosity...


Someone, help this city!

But what about those who love 1960's architecture?

the 60/70's international styled buildings are mostly great! Though this not
This is way to thin, both in width and in length. The height is extream for the building and the cladding looks nothing like the 60/70's buildings cladding.
and Even worse is the Larger window frames (big white once).
They make the building look like, its the architects first time drawing.
I do believe, that this could be an architectural masterpiece. But with the way it looks now... It is so far utter crap imo!

I dont think it looks that skinny. Especially with the model/renders next to other buildings. I think it's an illusion of having only 6 window panels per level per side, which are HUGE and make the mind think they are just small window panes, when infact they are humongo. It actually looks thick pictured next to the other buildings.

I like the design. Very minimal, modern and the facade is unique. It's go class and style, reminds me of a modern mid-century designed piece of furniture like an Eames or Bertoia. I dig it. Everyone's doing mirror buildings anyways. 10000x better than the many gaudy buildings in the middle-east.

Exactly, it's not that thin. Especially considering that Many residential and art deco NYC towers have similar width and length

Since it's clear that they're actually building this , one can only hope for some sort of rooftop observatory.

i can't say the building has the nicest design, nor can i say the design is bad, but what we all can agree with is that it is unique. And in my opinion it is a fresh and new looking modern tower. New York always was a playground for architects, New York has not one defined skyline, it is more of a play between very different towers of different eras and different kinds of style. This makes the city special, so why bashing one tower that is just following the New York style.

yes, the only difference is that this one is more than twice the height, so it's logical that this one looks almost too thin.

Are you guys forgetting how skinny and ugly the Burj Khalifa is??? This 432Park building is no where close to the skinny-to-height-proportions of that gaudy monstrosity in Dubai. 432Park has class, style and originality and is not trying to look like a space-ship from the year 3030.
