Hey, I was wondering if it's true that the tower is officially opening in January? I saw a couple sites like Wikipedia saying that it was but I don't know for sure.

Its planned to open sometime in early 2014 but I don't think it will in January.

Whereas the developers of 432 Park will have earned a profit of $1.1 upon building completion presumably in 2015, the Empire State Building for example took 18 years just to pay off the construction costs, and even today approximately 50% of its annual revenue comes from its observatory alone. If an office building doesn't have an observatory, it's much more difficult and timely to pay off the construction cost. Be patient, we'll see some near megatalls soon seeing as how well the residential market is doing. Don't forget the Old Post Office Redevelopment in Chicago is approved at 2,000 feet already.
thank you for this imformation, i juste have to wait to see probabel e in 2025 an u\c megatall in new york
i am agree with you new york city has lot of expensive supertalls
exemple 1wtc 3times the buget of borj tower

That's a vision. It'd be at least decade before that could even be attempted.
