Construction Update: 432 Park Avenue

There was major progress this weekend at 432 Park Avenue, where another crane was installed. With two cranes now working on the project, overall construction should begin to quicken. The new crane is for the retail portion of the project along 57th Street, which will offer enough space for a flagship store.

All below photos are from the 432 Park cameras, which provide several angles for watching the rise of New York’s future tallest tower. Since the last update via webcam view the tower has made major progress, rising well above ground level.

  1. This will technically be the third tallest building in NYC, not the tallest.

    225 W. 57th Street will be at least 1550 ft. (per DOB filings, could be taller overall), and 1 WTC is 1787 ft. to peak.

    Though I’m sure even taller buildings will be announced in the next few years, considering the luxury housing shortage, and strong local economy.

    • I’m confident you’re right. I wouldn’t be surprised if an ultra-luxury, super tall skyscraper renaissance will come to New York City within the next 10 – 20 years or more. Besides the World Trade Center Complex; we have ONE57, Torre Verre (Tower Verre), 99 Church Street (30 Park Place), 56 Leonard Street, 250 East 57th Street (Nordstrom Tower), 34th and 10th, The Rail Yards, One and Two Manhattan West, Grand Central Tower, 432 Park Avenue, One Vanderbilt, The GiraSole (3 Hudson Boulevard) and the list just keeps on going until we’re blue in the face. However, this is New York City, which along with London, will be the two financial centers of the world.

  2. It will be the tallest upon completion by official architectural height. The WTC’s antenna does not count, as they value engineered the radome into non-existence. 225 West 57th will most definitely be taller, though.

  3. There have also been rumors floating around that 3 Hudson Boulevard (The Girasole) could be as tall as 1600. I hope the rumors are true.
