This promotional video for the Norman Foster-designed 425 Park Avenue was posted recently on the building's website and comes our way via NY YIMBY. It provides the most comprehensive look at the 41-story office tower to date, with sweeping, animated renderings that (especially paired with the background music) look like establishing shots in a Batman movie. Also very Batman-esque: the way that all the scalies are just standing around staring out the windows. Don't you have any work to do, office scalies? Go check your emails or something.
The video, produced by Neoscape, concludes by showing how prominent 425 Park will be in the Manhattan skyline—pretty prominent, if that light-up thing on top turns out to be half as bright as it seems here. That's especially important since the tower, which could accurately be described as "very tall," will now be completely dwarfed by the neighboring 432 Park. Constructed is expected to start in 2015.
