Ofcourse it is. As small and tiny as it looks it will always be better than this 54 floors building going above, and of course this is just my statement.

Hm, I never saw a detailed picture of the view from Central Park. I also just realized, that the Central Park view seems not be the main focus of the building, since the elevator core is located towards it.

Will it also have fake windows that are lit up at night? It seem like such a mediocre design to me. New York deserves better. More importantly New York needs to respect its real heritage, building tacky stuff doesn't necessarily mean showing respect to the real heritage, quite the opposite.

Great fotos, great cladding
Especially how the joints are not visible.
I think it's a good idea that they went for blind windows, not 'fake windows'. The materials look gorgeous.

seems like the building reached 40% of its height.

Quote:
An invited group of New York brokers were among the first to step into 520 Park Avenue at an event hosted by Zeckendorf Development. Held on the 29th floor concrete slab of the tower’s construction site, the event marked the first time 520 Park Avenue has been open to guests from the brokerage community. Brokers had the opportunity to walk around the full-floor simplex and experience the views of the Upper East Side Historic District and Central Park from its 85 foot frontage. Once completed the simplexes will offer over 225 feet of exterior perimeter windows.
...
Located at East 60th Street between Park and Madison Avenue, 520 Park Avenue has now reached 40 percent of its final height. The 800-foot tall tower designed by Robert A.M. Stern will become the tallest building on Manhattan’s historic Upper East Side, offering 33 full-floor residences.

No no. The Chinese love cheesy. Take a look at this (absolutely ridiculous) over-the-top marketing video for one of Robert AM Stern's buildings going up in China. It's so bad its good. Apparently Stern is no longer from Brooklyn as he has been overdubbed with a British voice.

View from my window around 8 blocks north. This morning.

Construction is moving very fast, Maybe more than one floor per week. Should be topped out around end of the year.
I think when finished the top will appear somewhere between roof of GM and top of 432.

It is now quite prominent from CPS. Between 520 and 5th Ave there are no tall buildings so it really stands out. I think it will sort of frame the end of the park with Time Warner Center at opposite side.

I'm the only that thinks that the facade looks worst than in the render? It looks cheap :S
