Located in the center of Manhattan on Park Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets, 432 Park Avenue is the tallest residential building in the western hemisphere. Designed by Rafael Vinoly, this 96-story, 1,396-foot tower provides incomparable residences with spectacular views of Central Park, the Hudson and East Rivers, the Atlantic Ocean, and many iconic Manhattan buildings and avenues. The unencumbered volume of the tower that is located in the center of the block shows a regular grid of exposed concrete members and ten foot by ten foot glass windows. The slender tower with its 1:15 ratio is divided into seven equal segments separated by open loggias that expose the building core.
The floor plans with a floor–to-floor height of 15.5 feet are free from structural elements and provided for flexibility in the design of the 142 residential units. The lower floors of the building are devoted to amenities for the residents including a private restaurant, a club containing health and spa facilities, a screening room, and a conference center.
The complex also contains a retail and office component with access from 57th Street; the Park Avenue Pavillion; a four-free standing commercial building; and a public plaza.
