That would be very quick, but the progress is good.

Can somebody please explain the meaning of the diagrams showing different heights and labelled "envelope encroachment"? Thanks.

The right diagrams show what the maximum zoning that this plot allows , the left ones show what SL Green has proposed to build.

Famed chef-restaurateur Daniel Boulud has signed on to open a humongous new restaurant and private dining space in supertall Midtown skypscraper One Vanderbilt. Steve Cuozzo at the Post reports that the French culinary mogul will be taking over an 11,000-square-foot ( 1.000 m² ) space in the tower, which is expected to open in 2020.

The restaurant run by Boulud’s company Dinex will be on the second floor at Vanderbilt Avenue and East 42nd Street, with more than 100 seats and at least 50 more for private events. An outpost of grab-and-go restaurant Epicerie will be on the ground floor, along with an 110-feet-high ceiling and “a bar that will seem to be ‘floating in space’,” according to the Post.
Who want to reserve a seat for the grand opening?

Not me, i'm not poor , but not rich

I agree, if the cladding isn't spectacular this could be a big ugh on a beautiful skyline. This structure seems too heavy and clumsy for the area imho. The new slender residential towers are more to my taste.

I don't think it is ugly as hell, but i dont find this design to be groundbreaking or even awesome, seems pretty standard especially after WTC and Hudson yards.

Steinway tower i find much more appealing.

New yorkers feel free to rip me apart over this.

I like the design of this tower, but it had to be stretched and made thinner and taller to appear more elegant. That´s the only thing that i dislike about it. And i am "upset" about the height cut.

One Vanderbilt Moves toward Vertical Construction

Business Wire
April 20, 2017

Quote:
SL Green Realty Corp. today announced several construction milestones in the development of One Vanderbilt Avenue, all of which demonstrate significant progress toward vertical construction on the 1,401-foot Midtown Manhattan tower soon to rise at the doorstep of Grand Central Terminal.

One Vanderbilt’s construction manager AECOM Tishman has executed a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) contract, which includes the procurement of more than 25,000 tons of domestically-fabricated structural steel from Banker Steel Company, a Virginia-based steel fabrication firm, and secured a New Building Permit from the New York City Department of Buildings.

“This series of milestones represents the most tangible sign yet that a new era in Midtown East is close at hand,” said Marc Holliday, SL Green’s Chief Executive Officer. “Not only will Manhattan’s skyline soon be getting a spectacular new addition utilizing 100 percent union labor, but the experience of going to work in Midtown East will improve dramatically. Along with our joint venture partners—the National Pension Service of Korea and Hines—we’re very much looking forward to beginning the next phase of this progress that will shape New York’s future.”


Vertical construction for the 1.7 million-square-foot, 58-floor building is slated to begin in early May. In February, workers poured 4,200 cubic yards of concrete into the foundation at One Vanderbilt, which marked the largest single continuous pour in New York City history. Banker Steel will be erecting steel that is fabricated at plants located in South Plainfield, New Jersey and Lynchburg, Virginia. Steel erection is scheduled to begin July, 2017.

“We build New York’s most iconic projects and recognizable buildings that transform the skyline. There isn’t a better example of that than SL Green’s visionary One Vanderbilt,” said Jay Badame, President of AECOM Tishman. “As we move toward vertical construction in May, our team is looking forward to New York’s next great address rising from the ground.”

Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) Associates, One Vanderbilt will encompass an entire city block, bounded by Madison and Vanderbilt Avenues to the west and east, and East 43rd and East 42nd Streets to the north and south. Expected to achieve LEED Gold under version 4.0, the trophy tower will feature floor-to-ceiling slab heights ranging from 14'6" to 20', column-free floorplates, and stunning 360-degree views through floor-to-ceiling windows. It will also include a package of modern office amenities unrivaled in New York City, including a 30,000-square-foot tenant-only amenity floor and outdoor terrace.

In partnership with celebrated Chef Daniel Boulud, One Vanderbilt will offer a world-class 11,000 square-foot restaurant as well as private dining opportunities for tenants of the building. Immediately adjacent to one of the city’s key transit hubs, the building will create direct connections to the Grand Central transit network, which SL Green will improve through $220 million in public transit upgrades.

Construction is expected to be complete in 2020.

Good pics. Always nice to see a big hole.

Anything built to this scale and in this location has to be interesting. I'm not a fan of the design but renders often don't capture the full impact of a building so it may transcend itself.

That's great, you're more than welcome to your opinion. I just thought it was a funny coincidence that we had three people who were not so keen on the design in a row and they were all from Minnesota lol

Especially since most people like the design, I think

It is too clunky, especially next go that beautifully slender MetLife building.

I love how you guys announce that you prefer the shape of the ultra thin residential towers' for a giant office building, as if it was even an option.

It's like complaining that subway cars don't look like Lamborghinis.

Yeah. The height cut was tragic. I think the tower is too stubby and the crown is still pretty ugly. So I would rate this tower as average among New York's supertalls. It's certainly no Steinway or Verre.
