Construction Update: 432 Park Avenue

432 Park is now growing consistently, rising one floor every six daythe tower’s impact on the streetscape has increased noticeably since the last update. Accounting for the double floors, the core is up to the tenth story while the exterior is up to the ninth. Despite the low floor count, 432 Park is already noticeable, with the core now standing 217 feet tall.

The concrete facade loses its splotches in the sunlight, and the columns actually seem to glow with whiteness. Perhaps the facade won’t be so bad after all, especially as the building’s enormous size could—and probably will—draw attention away from the minor flaws.

The 57th Street side had the most visible progress, as the forms have been raised to reveal the transition between the retail and residential floors. The difference between the concrete—’finished’ above, and raw below—denotes the rear-end of 432 Park’s 57th Street-facing retail. A smaller space supposed to resemble the Apple Cube will open on the corner of 56th and Park.
