One project finishes, another one begins. In @A Chicagoan 's photos you can see the death shroud (black netting + scaffolding) indicating imminent demolition of 417 Park for a new tower.

425 Park Avenue’s Exterior Nears Completion In Midtown East, Manhattan
The final pieces of the glass curtain wall and gray paneling are being installed on 425 Park Avenue, a 897-foot-tall commercial skyscraper in Midtown East. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners for L&L Holding Company, Tokyu Land Corporation, and co-managing partner BentallGreenOak, the 47-story building will yield around 667,000 square feet largely dedicated to offices, as well as a ground-floor restaurant run by Chef Daniel Humm, proprietor of the Three Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park. The property is bound by Park Avenue to the west, East 55th Street to the south, and East 56th Street to the north, and is expected to achieve LEED-Gold certification and debut as the city’s first WELL-certified building.

Recent photos show the state of progress on the exterior since our last update in January, when 425 Park Avenue was awarded a temporary certificate of occupancy, or TCO, from the Department of Buildings. Since that time, most of the remaining glass panels have been installed on the lower floors of the building.

The firm will occupy the 35th floor, bringing the tower to 60 percent leased, the New York Business Journal first reported.
Wafra has offices about four blocks away at 350 Park Avenue, NYBJ reported. It’s unclear if Wafra plans to move out of its old digs for 425 Park.
