Construction Tour: One Vanderbilt

Southwest corner from East 42nd Street.

Construction continues at One Vanderbilt, SL Green's 58-story future supertall tower on a site adjacent to New York's Grand Central Terminal. Designed by KPF, the mixed-use tower will rise 1,401 feet into the Midtown skyline. The steel superstructure has reached the one third mark, surpassing the framing for the sloped glass atrium and well into the typical office floor plates.
