We’ve been keeping a close eye on One Vanderbilt, SL Green‘s new 65-story office tower planned for the entire block west of Grand Central and north of East 42nd Street. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, it will be the second-tallest building in the city when completed. Now, Yimby has hot-off-the-press skyline views of One Vanderbilt from KPF, and the newest NYC supertall certainly stands out amongst the nearby Empire State Building and Chrysler Building.
The new renderings confirm that the base of the building has changed slightly since the images were first created. The 1,450-foot-tall tower will rise 600 feet above the neighboring MetLife Building, which has been the center of Grand Central Terminal views for decades. But given the impending Midtown East Rezoning, it’s likely that One Vanderbilt will soon be surpassed by even taller new developments in the area.
