Slight topic deviation @Rouadcruiser: The only reason I made the opinion is that particularly with respect to One57, it just looks like is so much taller than CitySpire, given how close they are to each other. Just saying.....but whatever. It's just a silly nitpick in retrospect.
On Topic: I'm still a tad uneasy about the width of 432 given its height. I do hope it receives either a *smidgeon* of widening as has been suggested, or the facade treatment makes it look like a lot more than a threadbare, sky-blue pretzel rod.
I'm certainly not worried about the structural dynamics involved; but I do hope that they're reflected in architectural elements that don't lend the impression of mere functionalism.
I mean, as an example, there's IMO a right way to do X-bracing and a wrong one. The right way integrates aesthetic considerations with the application of proper high-rise engineering techniques.
I trust Sr. Viñoly's appreciation of these matters and the skillful implementation thereof.
