Viñoly tops out Western Hemisphere’s tallest residential building

  • Comment

Rafael Viñoly’s 432 Park Avenue skyscraper in New York has reached its full height of 425 metres

The luxury apartment building is now the Western Hemisphere’s tallest residential structure, towering over nearby New York landmarks including the Empire State and Chrysler buildings.

The project for developers CIM Group and Macklowe Properties features 104 flats each with three-metre-by-three-metre windows overlooking the city.

The square-plan tower also includes a private restaurant, spar and fitness centre, swimming pool, library, lounge, billiards room, screening room and performance venue.

Macklowe Properties chair Harry Macklowe said: ‘We are proud to have created a New York City landmark that can be seen throughout all five boroughs, and which will enhance our city’s iconic skyline.’

He continued: ‘In this second decade of the 21st century, we are privileged to have been part of creating something that will join the pantheon of legendary 20th century structures like the Chrysler, the Empire State and the Woolworth Buildings.’

Apartments in the tower start from around £10 million.
