If the thread calls it "the skyscraper", I'm calling it "the skyscraper". Such an uncreative name, at least it's not the "real" one, as people are saying. I think 432 Park Avenue should be named "the skyscraper", but 432 Park is a cool name because it has 3 consecutive numbers. Is that a coincidence or something done on purpose?

Isn't 432 Park the location of the skyscraper? Or it's just a marketing trick to suggest the view on Central Park.

That's a nice angle

I guess this picture has been taken a few weeks ago because now, on the Opus working site (on the far left of the picture), there a 4 cranes. It has been like that for a few weeks and on this one, there are still 2.

But considering the speed of construction on the Skyscraper project, I don't think it changes anything

Speaking of slow, the slice-of-melon building still isn't done? It topped out years ago!
