Great find! Source?
The Pearl of Park Avenue!
Lots of pics from the topping out:
This tower does not emulate J Lo. Its rear end is heinous,
I think it’s okay. In this day and age I think I’m thankful to have a blank wall as a lot wall and not a street-facing wall.
It also beats the exposed concrete walls I’ve seen on some older buildings. Whenever I see one of those (I’m guessing that’s where the core is), I wonder two things- one, why didn’t they cover it up with glass the way 277 Park Avenue did, and why not do something with all that exposed concrete or masonry? When I see those huge blank walls running the whole height of a skyscraper, I just want to give the poor towers some body art! Seriously, those walls would look so cool with painted murals of some kind.
