The Manhattan skyline from Central ParkNew York City is known for its skyscrapers and high-rise buildings towering over the bustling city below. Well, there will soon be a new kid on the block that will be the tallest apartment building in the city. Located at Park Avenue and East 56th Street and standing about 1,397 feet and rising 95-stories, 432 Park Avenue will beat out One57 by 400 feet, shoving its closest competitor to the side upon completion in the next few years.

An artist's rendering of Drake Tower on 432 Park AvenueIt’s an encouraging sign that, even in a weak economy, developers are still willing to take risks in new construction. None of those risks are bigger (literally) than the Drake Tower at 432 Park Ave, which will be the largest residential tower in all of Manhattan when completed. The current designs have this massive luxury condominium standing at over 1,300 feet, a good couple hundred feet higher than any luxury residential tower currently standing in Manhattan. A partnership between developer Harry Macklowe and CIM Group, a Los Angeles real-estate company, has kept the project moving forward despite a general slowdown in large luxury condo construction. When 432 Park Ave construction begins, it will set a new standard for luxury condominiums in Manhattan and stand as a powerful symbol that better things are yet to come.
