Perspective is a powerful thing. It almost looks taller than Empire State Building.

I love tall skinny skyscrapers. I hope 432 Park Ave. goes up as fast as this!

I think it's up to the 70th floor, so it must be close to 900 feet.

I calculated it to be about 275 meters, which corresponds well to 900 feet

432 Park will look much taller than this does now! When it's rising, people will love it.

From that angle, I can make a rough sketch of the current progress:



It looks like it's jumped another floor and is now at 280 meters. That would mean it has finally passed the CitiGroup Center and is rapidly gaining on Chrysler... it's currently the 6th tallest in NYC by roof height!
