It technically is on 57th, but they're building some kind of "front" on Park - I'm guessing that's what the mysterious box is. There's actually a black highrise in front of 432 on park, which the "box" is next to.

I just never imagined how much this building would glisten/gleam in the sun. Can't wait to be in New York at sunset.

Park Hyatt to debut Aug. 28
http://nypost.com/2014/02/24/park-hy...-debut-aug-28/

Quote:
Since we were first to tell you — on Dec. 2, 2008! — that Extell’s One57 would include a 5-star Park Hyatt Hotel, let us be first to tell you its opening date: Aug. 28.

That’s when the hotel is taking reservations for its first guests. That’s right: the eye-popping, Christian de Portzamparc-designed 1,005 foot-tall super-lux condo tower at 153 W. 57th St. will finally gain a public heartbeat after years of sniping over its height, its architecture, tax credits for condo purchasers, and the Sandy-caused crane accident that required evacuating the block.

The opening date comes to The Post from a deep source, which for once we’ll divulge: Park Hyatt’s website.

Strangely, a rep for Gary Barnett’s Extell told us Hyatt would not share the date with us beyond a vague “summer.” The site also divulged that “average daily” room rates will run from $855 per night for a Park Deluxe King room to $1,255 for a 1,016 square-foot Park Terrace Suite.

The property boasts a “phenomenal spa” on the 25th floor, a 1,845-square-foot fitness center, a high-end restaurant overseen by New York chef Sam Hazen, and an “exquisite bar” overlooking Carnegie Hall.

But our favorite part is this: According to the website, general manager Walter Brindell, a “devout advocate for animals,” is “shaping the Park Hyatt to become a leading pet-friendly hotel with unparalleled amenities for canine companions.”

Woof!

Tonight at 10pm on PBS the fourth episode of Super Skyscrapers "The Billionaire Building" is focused on the construction of One57!! It is the most complete of the four supertalls featured so I am excited to see this episode in particular.

It was pretty crazy watching them install the window washing system with the storm approaching.

I found it interesting. But when they were showing the two pre-fab kitchen styles, I was thinking "If I was paying THAT much for a condo, I'd want to choose my own damn color schemes!"

Yup that's what I was thinking. People like that can afford interior designers to personalize their condos

I grabbed a few dozen screencaps from the SuperScrapers show. Let me know if you want to see more.









Looking at that first photo, I think it's fair to say that there is something to be said for being so close to the center of Central Park South. The Park looks like the residents' own personal lawn, rolling out into the distance. The 432 Park Avenue and the Nordstrom towers will be taller, 111 W 57th will be more slender and probably more esthetically pleasing, and 220 CPS is one block closer to the Park and will evoke classy old New York, but One57 has that centered view.

Here's an attempt to see where the center of CPS is, with the 4 main towers marked. The center is between One57 and 111 W 57.

I'm still surprised that Hampshire House is not landmarked (right on CPS, green roof, just to the left of the center line).
