432 Park Avenue

Notable Building in Midtown

It's a case of 'thin is in' with the arrival of this 1396ft-tall, $1.3 billion residential tower by Uruguayan architect Rafael Viñoly. Its clean, white, cubic facade inspired by a 1905 trash can by Austrian designer Josef Hoffman, the tower rises above the Midtown skyline like an impossibly slim square tube. It's currently the city's second-tallest building, upstaged only by One World Trade Center. Measured to actual roof height, however, it's actually 28ft taller than its spire-crowned downtown rival.
