Rafael Vinoly has designed a landmark project for New York City, a 1396 feet development, set to become the tallest residential building in the western hemisphere, and the second tallest building in New York City, after One World Trade Centre.
The 96-storey project, 432 Park Avenue, will be built in the heart of Manhattan overlooking Central Park, the Hudson and East Rivers and the dense fabric of the city.
According to Vinoly the building was designed around ‘the purest geometric form: the square” to evoke a sense of graceful compactness. The tower’s condominium units will range from a 351-square-foot studio to a six-bedroom, seven-bath penthouse with a library, already under agreement for $95 million.
With an estimated cost of US$1 billion, the building’s amenities will include 3.7metres high ceilings, golf training facilities, and private dining and screening rooms.
432 park avenue is slated for completion in 2015.
