High ceilings.

This type of construction is now the norm for superluxury product. Ceilings are extremely high, both in the residential spaces and the amenity spaces.

Yeah, he did. How did he get on the top? Yes, he could get killed. That's a problem.

I noticed that 450 looks to be getting some work done, they're doing something about that exposed brick on its flank, that was making it look rather scarred. Good for them!

432 Park really raised the standard for future supertalls!

I was just in Central Park and this tower has completely ruined it. The shadows it was casting nearly gave me frost bite as the temperature differential was like being on the dark side of the moon. The former lush landscape was nearly completely abandoned, save for a lone cockroach scurrying through darkness trying to find a way out. I saw a sunbather that had expired in desperation waiting for sunlight; it was like a scene from Terminator. In the veritable apocalyptic windswept wasteland little life can survive. Only a few lichens and hardy grasses have been able to cling to life with the tiny amount of sunlight that squeezes through the immense darkness of this towers near eclipse of the sun for all eternity. If only we had listened, this tragedy could have been averted.

What ever happened to the lighting on the air flow/utility floors? A couple of them were turned on some time ago, presumably as a test. But they haven't been used since. Has the idea been scotched?
