A New Jewel for the Upper Echelon in Midtown Manhattan

New York’s newest skyscraper, the 96-story 432 Park Avenue, is now the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere at 1,396 feet (426 m). The building is also the tallest in New York City, sans antennas, beating out both the Empire State Building and One World Trade Center (see image below).

The project is expected to be complete sometime in late 2015 or early 2016. Already more than $1 billion in condominium sales has occurred with prices ranging from $7 million to $95 million.

The Project was designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners who designed 425 Park Avenue, completed interior work at Li & Fung, helped refurbish the peer hotel, designed the Hearst Tower and many more.
