Of course the pool floors and the mech floors for the residences are also part of the residential usage. And the lobby for the residents.

That blueprint above for 432PA is outdated. Residential apartments start on floor 14. Below 14 are some offices which will be for the residents of the building to use for all their business needs. This tower is all resi not counting the 1st 4 floors of retail.

This building can be pretty tall, but not beautiful for sure.

Did this become a thread about 432 Park?

It seems to me that a lot of exceptionally tall buildings are popping up close to Central Park (such as 432 Park Ave and One57) and amongst far smaller buildings. To me they seem inappropriately placed, I mean, having a 412m building looming over lots of 100-150m ones?

and that makes it any different to when these 100-200m tall buildings were looming over 4-5 storey low rises?
No it doesn't, it's an evolutionary step on the ever changing cityscape

Having residential supertalls next to small buildings (and a park) makes sense, of course, the people paying a pretty penny for living in these new buildings don't want to look out their window and see nothing but the guy from the (hypothetical) neighbouring supertall watching TV...

There's nothing exceptionally beautiful about the NYC area really. Yes, some nice hills and rivers and it happens to be on the ocean, but nothing amazing like a Barcelona, Vancouver, Sydeny, HK, Rio, SF, Stockholm or even Dublin, Edinburgh, etc. Urban Jersey is so ugly that it cancels out whatever nice stuff is in the background there. When you are in NYC you don't notice natural beauty that much. I get the sense that you are promoting NYC now, almost like a tourism marketing officer. Heaven forbid we forget that NYC has some hills and rivers nearby. Why focus on ordinary hills on a skyscraper forum anyway. It's not as if it's rio or something. The sprawl of NYC ruins any beauty anyway/

It seems that you never take the Palissade Highway. the clash between the forest and the city of New York is incredible. Because of the height of the surrounding mountains is so small, you can't predict how near the big city is. This is true awesomeness.

The Lowermost Hudson Valley is part of the view, so discussing it is relevant.

I wouldn't exactly call New York a "sprawling" city. This ain't Atlanta. It just happens to be the most MASSIVE urban area in the country.

I understand that. But, to be honest, the metro area is gigantic in size compared to equally populated metros globally. It just tends to sprawl a lot more due to the way Americans like to live. Also, it is an endless sea of banal single family homes, highways and commercial strips without areas of open country, which aren't that great looking and many would say this detracts from the natural beauty of the area

It looks like a quill pen sitting in an inkwell.

I really love the front of shorter art deco buildings with the tall modern towers behind them. That's gotta look amazing IRL.
