New York skyscraper launches

New York’s newest skyscraper, 432 Park Avenue, had an extremely successful US launch in March with hundreds of millions of dollars of sales already achieved.

Buyers are predominantly from the US, say co-developers CIM Group and Macklowe Properties, with others from South America, the Middle East, UK, China and Russia. With an expected completion in 2015, the 1,396-foot tower, designed by Rafael Viñoly, will become the tallest building in New York City and the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere.  

Located on Park Avenue between 56th and 57th Street, 432 Park Avenue is surrounded by the best of fashion, art and design. The tower is set to have 96 stories and will be constructed using architectural concrete, steel, and glass. All windows measure an expansive 10 feet by 10 feet, to ensure views of Central Park, the Hudson and East Rivers, the Atlantic Ocean, and many iconic Manhattan buildings and avenues.
