The penthouse of 432 Park Avenue – a residential skyscraper soon to be the tallest building in New York City (at 396m, 9.1m taller than One World Trade Centre).

Built on the $440 million site of the 1926 Drake Hotel, the development is due for completion next year.

104 apartments ranging in price from $16.96 million to $82.5 million.

      Well if you’ve paid over 80 million dollah for your apartment, you’d want to bring as many people around to show off as you can, so the more chairs the merrier.

    Watched a doc on the building of this.
    One bath going into one of the bathrooms of higher priced apartments was over 100,000 dollars.
    A beautiful bath sculpted from a single block of flawless marble in Italy.

    Not 100,000 beautiful in my eye but then I don’t wipe my @ss with money*

    *I don’t wipe at all.

    Was in NYC last week and what struck me about the building was the narrow space it occupies compared to other skyscrapers. It’s tall but it’s small.

      That also struck me while looking at the photo of it. It’s very narrow. It’s bound to fall over: they probably haven’t thought this through.

      I’m across in Jersey looking over at it. It’s a size zero skyscraper – keep thinking – where’s the rest of it?

    Gawd, is there anything more vacuous than an interior designer talking about their, ahem, craft.

    Right, no blinds on the bathroom so those yuppie feckers in WTC can be oogling your bits and some fecker will create a website http://www.432bathroomscenes.com. You can’t clean the exterior of the windows, maybe they employ one of those lads with a climbing rope to do it, but refer back to the no blinds on the bathroom window. The chandelier in the, ahem, seating area will forever be bashing your noggin because it’s too low, the ceilings are, well, just plain boring. And do people in 2014 still stew in their own filth in tubs/baths? Maybe they stick on relaxing music and light candles (only to be interrupted by Haysus on a rope and his squeegee abseiling outside your window.)

    No, no, give me a pre-1963 bedsit anyday.

      It looks as if the chandelier is hung over a table. It’ll blind you rather than headbutt you.

      I think you’ve given them a run for their money.

    I’d imagine that every time an airplane comes into view through the window, you’d get a slightly unsettling feeling.

    Was watching a doc last night bout U.S. textile multinationals paying wages in the region of a dollar a day in third world countries, barely enough to survive. We do seem to live in a world of contrasts now

    I just got a touch of vertigo even looking at the picture of it. I worked on the 40th floor of a building in Sydney and I was never 100% comfortable being that high up in a building. Going up there in the lift had me sh!tless.
