Harry Macklowe, the developer behind 432 Park Avenue in NYC—soon to be the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere—is feeling pretty good about the project: "This is the building of the 21st century, the way the Empire State Building was the building of the 20th century," he recently told the Times. He also appears in a short film that includes CGI of tightrope master Philippe Petit walking between the Empire State Building and 432 Park "while Mr. Macklowe emerges from a King Kong outfit."
