432 Park Avenue is an new iconic structure rising at the corner of 56th Street in midtown Manhattan (thanks to Darrell for bringing it to my attention). When completed in 2015 it will be the tallest residential tower in the Western hemisphere and the second tallest building in New York City after the One World Trade Center (formerly known as the Freedom Tower).

The address is what initially interested me. 432 is a very significant number. 432 is part of a doubling sequence: 108, 216, 432, 864, 1728, 3456 wherein each term encodes secrets in plain sight.
432 Park has a very simple design based on “the purest geometric form: the square,” according to its architect Rafael Viñoly.
I noticed that each floor plate has an area of 8640 square feet. The tower has a total of 2016 windows with a total glazed area of 201,600 square feet.
In my book Taking Measure: Explorations in Number, Architecture, and Consciousness I explain how the material matrix in which we are embedded is based on the decimal system and why my qualitative numerological analyses discount the placeholder zero. Therefore, 432 Park’s floors and windows encode 864 and 216, the terms neighboring 432 in the doubling sequence.
The building height had me stumped for a while until I realized that 1398 feet = 864 x Phi. Phi is thegolden ratio. See SIPS Volume 1 for how Phi is encoded in the Great Pyramid, the Washington Monument, and UN Headquarters which is visible from the windows of 432 Park incidentally.
The windows of 432 Park seem to underline the fundamental importance of the decimal system. Each of the 2016 windows is a 10 foot square having 100 square feet glazed area. Each side of the tower has 6 windows so looking around the penthouse you see 6, 6, 6, and 6 windows. The ceiling height is 12’6″, or 6′+6′+6″.
216 = 6x6x6.
Moon’s diameter = 2160 miles (99.9%).
Earth’s orbital velocity 66,660 miles/hour.
Earth’s precessional cycle is 6x6x6! or 25,920 years.
Arctic Circle to Equator = Pole to Tropics = 66.6 degrees (credit: William Neil).
The construction costs of 432 Park exceed $1.25 billion. The owner-developer Harry Macklowe expects to sell over $3 billion of condos in 432 Park. –Source The penthouse has already sold for $95 million. This ultraluxury tower is certainly for the one percent.
Interestingly Macklowe purchased the Drake Hotel at 440 Park for $440 million and tore it down to make room for the residential tower with the new address of 432 Park.
In Yards I discussed how the Great Pyramid is metrological model of the Earth in 1:43,200 scale.
The height of the Great Pyramid times 43,200 = Earth’s polar radius in feet (99.7%)
The base perimeter times 43,200 = Earth’s equatorial circumference in feet (99.4%)
At an average rate of 72 beats per minute, in 1 hour the human heart will have beat 4320 times. In 12 hours, or 43,200 seconds, the heart will have beat 51,840 times. The Great Pyramid slope is 51.84 degrees.
432 x 432 is the speed of light in miles/sec (99.8%).
In the Hindu vedas, which are among the world’s oldest sacred texts, the Kali yuga (“the age of vice”) is said to last 432,000 years. Most interpreters of Hindu scriptures believe that Earth is currently in the Kali Yuga.

Ray Tomes discovered that powers of 34560 structure the universe:
If we take the average distance between moons and multiply it by a factor of 34560, we get the average distance between planets.
Take the average distance between planets, multiply it by a factor of 34560 and we get the average distance between stars.
Multiply the average distance between stars by a factor of 34560 and we get the average distance between galaxies.
Take the average distance between galaxies, multiply it by a factor of 34560 and we get the size of the known Universe.
