The second *tallest* residential building in the world by structural height, not the second *highest* occupied floor.

Considering the height difference, it just makes Steinway appear a little taller than it really is.

Not that anybody should be out, but if you are, stay away from Steinway. Very windy out, and I don't think they've repaired it.

Like watching Days of our Lives...
 
In December 2020, JDS sued HVAC contractor Copper II, and also sued the contractor's insurer Talisman Casualty for over $11.7 million. In its lawsuit, the developers claimed that Copper II had delayed its installation of the HVAC system, leading them to warn the contractor in November 2018. JDS also claimed that that, due to improper installation of the HVAC system, ten stories sustained water damage during July 2019.[141]

See section labeled 'other lawsuits'...


Would this be what is possibly contributing to what seems to be taking so long? Has Stefano come back from the grave to help drag this story plot line out a bit more? Will Marlena come to our rescue?

Ive always wondered how this building would handle an airplane running into it by accident. Even a Cessna hitting the top would do some serious damage. Like the 2006 Bellaire Apartments. A small airplane strike would halfway up it seems would slice the building right in two.

Or the Empire State Building in 1945.

The PSI of the structure is quite strong. And I believe even stronger for 432 Park. Short of an Airbus or 737/747... would take quite a lot to bring this down. Damage...sure. A rich fella having his last momements as he sees the plane, and promptly enjoys his last moments with his dominatrix... that's about it.

Would take a lot to slice it like a chef slices celery.

This structure on a side note looks like it would be a nightmare if the fire suppression failed on the top 10 floors and the top 10 floors are on fire. Helicopter maybe?

Tell me more.

I would learn to rappel and keep a full kit near the bathrooms with the small lot line windows. Cut through the glass with a tool and rappel down safe from fire. There's almost no windows in the shear walls.

Do they have this airplane crash in mind??? It seems like they don’t think about it when they built the twin towers tho... :uhh:

Planes crash into 1 story buildings far more often than skyscrapers. :shrug:

Oh wow. That is so bad... :(

They did think about with the WTC. it was designed to withstand the crash and resulting fires of a Boeing 707. The planes that where flown in to the bindings where 767's about 2x the size. An rather unsettling there was a thread on airlines .net in 2000 (back when airlines .net was full of industry professionals) talking about what if a 767 crashed in to one of the towers the consensus what that it wold be quote catastrophic.
