rafael vinoly's 432 park avenue to become the tallest building in the western hemisphere

 

rafael vinoly has designed a landmark skyscraper for the manhattan skyline with 432 park avenue, a 1,396 foot tall tower slated to become the tallest residential building in the western hemisphere. while the official launch of the condominium sales occurred in march 2013, the project has already achieved over 1 billion USD in sales, boasting an international set of buyers investing in residences priced anywhere from 7 million USD to 95 million USD. the architect approached the monumental design for the forthcoming tallest building in new york city with graceful compactness in mind.

432 park avenue’s 96 storeys will be a glazed and concrete vision overlooking central park, the hudson and east rivers as well as the thick, richly diverse urban fabric of manhattan — all visible through 10 by 10 foot apertures. designed by rafael vinoly, the svelte exterior form belies the spacious plan; residences will include private elevator landings, eat-in kitchens, master suites and a plethora of fine finishes and optional additions. in the space-hungry eastern metropolis, future residents will enjoy 30000 square feet of amenities. renderings already show a miesian composition of glazed panes catching the impossible yellow-oranges and pinks of the east coast sunset. 432 park avenue is slated for completion in 2015.

  • Just beautiful. I like the solid exterior with stylish interior. It will definitely have the best view of the NYC. Must be nice to take a bath and have that view.

  • I want one near the top. Living there it would be hard not to feel you are king of the world if not the galaxy.
