New York Apartment Building Is Tallest in the Americas
Not only can you see the world from the top of 432 Park Avenue's, Rafael Viñoly-designed tower, but the world can see you.
"It's almost like the Mona Lisa," said developer Harry B. Macklowe in a New York Times story. "Except instead of it looking at you, you're looking at it wherever you are. You can't escape it."
The skyline-changing tower, which looks like a giant domino stretching to the clouds, includes apartments reportedly priced from $7 million to $95 million. But when it comes to living among the stars -- like, the actual stars -- money apparently is no object.
Check out the developer's website to see what you could see at 558 feet to 1,271 feet.
Besides views from the Bronx to Brooklyn, all of Central Park and part of the Atlantic Ocean, the new building between 56th and 57th streets, features:
- units with 12½-foot ceilings and 10-by-10-foot windows.
- private restaurant for residents and guests only.
- billiards room.
- massage therapy room.
By mid-2015, 225 West 57th is set to reach 1,479 ft. above street level, according to YIMBY. It could steal the title before the first residents of 432 Park Avenue move in next fall.
