Construction Update: One Vanderbilt

Superstructue has topped out 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 has reached its full height of 1,401 feet with yesterday’s installation of the 100-foot tall spire.
