What. I mean should be like classic design instead of boxy modern boxy building. Maybe like UOB plaza singapore would look better. Just my opinion though

432 Park will be a bit of a sore thumb for a few years...

It's your CN Tower in that regard. It doesn't have quite the 'dwarfing' effect though as it's quite a bit shorter: 553m vs. 426m.

Nah, the only way 432 Park could be a sore thumb in the future is if the planned supertalls for that area don't get built, which won't happen. For now though, it does stick out quite a bit.

I personally love 432 PA just on its own as it is now. It really has changed the NYC skyline, creating a new focal point. Definitely a recognizable icon in my opinion.

I like it too. It's amp'ed up the skyline considerably.

AURA has done that for Toronto somewhat. It's the tall one half way between the CN Tower and Yorkville (on the right). As Ramako pointed out on another thread, One Bloor can now be seen... albeit barely.

Agreed, I had EXACTLY the same feeling about Aura Tower in Toronto. It is like there was a skyline before Aura and then there is a skyline after Aura.
