Trump World Tower is the Tower which shares the most numerous design similarities with 432 Park Avenue. It is a rectangular box, it's slender and quite tall. Therefore, 432 would have looked much better if it had been built closer to it. I prefer cohesion to disorder.
Hence, I repeat that from the render, 432 looks out of place. But I guess a lot of people had the same feeling with numerous NY's skyscraper before they were built. The one that comes to my mind instantaneously is the Metlife (former Pan Am) building on Park Avenue.
Every new NY supertall is a present, too bad developers don't care about the general picture. In this case, you really feel that they combined the available footprint and air rights and maximised this combination as a vulgar computer would have done.
Sometimes it works, sometime it doesn't.
