in 2012, foster + partners won the high-profile international competition to design the 425 park avenue tower in the coveted address in new york city. three years on, the ground breaking ceremony occurred yesterday – attended by lord foster himself – to mark the beginning of the vast construction project. the tower will be conceived as a full office building, the first on park avenue for fifty years and achieve WELL certification and, LEED gold accreditation. structurally, the form has been divided into three clear volumes, each presenting triple-height sky gardens along with terraces offering sweeping views across central park. scheduled to open in 2018, the steel-framed 425 park avenue tower will contribute to the scale and character of its neighbors meanwhile become a distinct addition to the city’s growing skyline.

Did they redo the crown on the building? There was a big talk about it and how ugly it looks

I don't care for the grey spine at the back, but the front is brilliant. The set backs have a stark subtlety, and there is a nice industrial look to the thing.
