Thread: 50 East 57th Street @ 432 Park Avenue (former Drake Hotel site)

    It was reported in the media that this tower will be 1,397 feet tall. Does anyone know what the facade will be composed of (e.g., metal, stone, etc.)?

    Once again, the utter lack of enthusiasm for a 1,400 foot tower is a testament to just how shi.tty the design is.

    Or perhaps people are waiting on a rendering.

    The renderings have been released.

    I pray that this is not a total POS.

    LL, I see you calling lots of buildings POS, or hoping they won't be POS... I'm not saying they aren't, but I am curious... what are some buildings or styles in New York you DO approve of?

    In terms of new ones and/or ones about to be built, the following are great:

    One 57
    Hudson Yards North and South Towers
    Torre Verre
    B of A
    Mercedes House
    Durst's Pyramid

    They all have stylish shapes. 432 Park, by contrast, is a simple, lame box. It can be acceptable if the facade is nice. We'll see.

    Really? You like One 57? Seems like a frilly glass box. I'll wait to see what the rest of it looks like.

    I get depressed every time I think of what could have risen here. I don't care how tall it will be. It's a shi.tty box!

    This is now legitimately under construction!

    With foundation work now formally underway, 432 Park should be at street level
    within several months. The only similar tower in the city--One57--rose to grade
    fairly quickly, although financing issues paused the actual building's rise
    several times through construction. The simplicity of 432
    Park's design
    could mean that the tower will rise even faster than One57
    has, meaning that One World Trade's reign at the top of New York's skyline could
    be over as early as 2014. While speculation is unreliable, CIM still hasn't
    released detailed renders of 432 Park, which leaves Department of Building
    permits as the only source of information on the project.

    It's hard to believe this thing is going up and 99 Church is still stalled. Vinoly is about to deface two of the greatest cities in the world.
