432 Park Avenue is a luxury high-rise on Billionaire's Row in Manhattan. It's a skyscraper that was constructed for the ultra-wealthy. Units in the building sell for tens of millions of dollars, some for even more. Construction started on the building in 2011. It was completed in 2015, at a cost of $1.25 billion dollars. Today the skyscraper looms over the city skyline at 1,396 FT tall. It's currently the third tallest residential building in the entire world.
The skyscraper's construction has not gone without fanfare. The condo board recently sued the developer for design flaws, according to the NY Post. Architecturally wise, 432 Park Avenue is arguably one of the most criticized buildings in all of NYC, maybe even the world. It has certainly made an impression on the NYC skyline, one way or another, where it can be seen from far away distances in New Jersey, Upstate, and even Connecticut. There seems to be a common theme when people are discussing the building. They either love it or hate it. The Big City Team shot an up-close video of the building that we shared on our YouTube channel. We would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section.
