I thought gardens were going into those wind-break floors?

Apparently, the building's open areas will be lit on Monday for the first time.

Get ready, 432 Park is about to disrupt the city’s skyline even more

It’s already hard not to notice the form of 432 Park Avenue, towering over the rest of the New York skyline like a pencil pushed out of its box. And now, the massive building is set to exert an even stronger presence on the rest of the city, when, starting Monday, it will debut its new lighting feature.

Admittedly, it’s not the most dramatic light show we’ve seen from New York skyscrapers (though it’s pretty good for a residential building). The 1,396-foot tower has five open-air “drum floors” that house the building’s mechanical equipment, and those floors will now light up with 32 LED lights every night starting at sunset. Each drum floor is 30 feet tall, and they are located on the 31st, 45th, 60th, 74th and 89th floors.

It's lit now. It actually does look pretty cool on the skyline lit up.

if size is all that counts..

This building sticks out of the skyline the way a gawky kid sticks out of his school picture after an abnormal growth spurt.

At a small scale, the simple rectilinear geometry would be elegant. At 1,396 feet, its mindnumbingly dull. The open structural floors give it an unfinished look.

That said, from pictures, it looks like the building reads better up close than from farther away. (I haven't been over there since it it was done though so I don't know.) But from Central Park, or across the Hudson, its more than a bit regrettable.

Its one of the few buildings I can see from the third floor of my apartment in Montclair, NJ about 12 miles away. At that distance, I'm just happy to see part of the skyline, other than that, what a bore.

With some context (i.e. other towers with roughly comparable height), this building might not look as bad. Perhaps the coming supertalls on 57th will bring that context.
