432 Park Avenue – a skyscraper designed by Rafael Vinoly

June 7, 2013 Comments Off


With about 425 meters height, the skyscraper 432 Park Avenue (New York) will be the highest residential building in the Western Hemisphere. Rafael Viñoly has designed a simple tower with a square base and, as hard as it seems, it completely breaks with the current structure of the skyscraper. This is a complicated skyscraper with its own personality. One need only take a look at the projects in Manhattan, or some of the future towers in Seoul in order to understand this phenomenon.
432 Park Avenue will feature 96 floors and a very homogeneous glass façade with large windows, offering spectacular views of the city. The homes will have a private elevator, kitchen, several suites, and a lot of luxury finishes. The building company has already signed contracts to receive more than a billion dollars in sales, mainly from international buyers who want to invest in these apartments, which prices range from 7 to 95 million dollars.
