432 Park Avenue has begun rising once more, after a brief pause this past week – the future 1,398-foot tower had briefly stopped at one of its ‘gap’ floors, which will hold the building’s various mechanical equipment between the residential levels. The mechanical gaps also explain how the tower will be so tall despite its extremely thin profile, as the perforations in the facade will reduce the structure’s wind resistance.
At over 500 feet in height, 432 Park Avenue is now the tallest building on its block, and is becoming quite visible from both Madison and Fifth Avenue. Soon enough, it will tower over all neighbors, and earn the title of New York’s tallest building in the process – at least until 217 West 57th Street takes the crown.
