In this shot we can see new building 432 Park Avenue at Midtown in NYC.

432 Park Avenue is a supertall residential project with 104 condominium apartments developed by CIM Group in midtown Manhattan, New York City. Originally proposed to be 396 m in 2011, construction began in 2012 and is scheduled to be completed during this year 2015. The building required the demolition of the 495-room Drake Hotel, which had been built in 1926. In 2006, the hotel was sold for $440 million to developer Harry Macklowe, and the hotel was demolished the year afterward. The site became one of New York’s most valuable development sites due to its location, between East 56th and 57th Streets on the west side of Park Avenue.

At a height of 425.5 m , 432 Park Avenue is the third tallest building in the United States, and the tallest residential building in the western hemisphere. It is the second tallest building in New York City, behind One World Trade Center, and ahead of the Empire State Building. When measured by roof height however, 432 Park Avenue is the tallest building in New York City, surpassing One World Trade Center by 8.5 m.
