Midtown East - One Vanderbilt

Manhattan to Get 1,020-Foot Skydeck Near Grand Central Terminal

Observatory at SL Green’s 1 Vanderbilt will be fifth in NYC








Quote:
New York visitors are going to have another choice for a high-altitude view of the city.

SL Green Realty Corp. is set to announce today that 1 Vanderbilt, the office skyscraper it’s building just west of Manhattan’s Grand Central Terminal, will have an indoor-outdoor observation deck more than 1,000 feet (305 meters) above the street. Foundation work has begun for the Midtown tower, set to be New York’s second-tallest at 1,401 feet and slated for completion in 2020.


The skydeck will join those at the Empire State Building, 1 World Trade Center downtown, the “Top of the Rock” at 30 Rockefeller Center, and one planned for 30 Hudson Yards that’s scheduled to be ready in 2019. SL Green expects its deck will be a “very high-margin business,” as the Empire State Building’s two observatories have been, said Rob Schiffer, a managing director at the company and the point person for the One Vanderbilt project.

“What could differentiate us is an experience that is unrivaled amongst the competing observation decks,” Schiffer said in an interview. “First and foremost is our location. Grand Central Terminal is one of the most highly visited attractions in New York and the world.”


The deck will be directly connected to the train hub -- whose vaulted ceiling and Beaux Arts architecture draw tourists as well as daily commuters -- with an entrance down a hallway from Grand Central’s main concourse. Plans are being developed by Montreal-based GSM Project, which designed decks at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world’s tallest building, and London’s Shard tower.

Schiffer declined to say what SL Green, New York’s largest office landlord, plans to charge for a visit the observatory, nor would he estimate how much revenue it’s expected to generate.

Observatories have been a lucrative business at Midtown’s Empire State Building. According to reports by landlord Empire State Realty Trust, annual revenue from the tower’s two decks -- one on the 86th floor, the other on the 102nd -- grew almost 40 percent since 2011 and continued to increase even after the opening last year of One World Observatory at 1 World Trade Center in lower Manhattan.

“The ESB observatory has proved quite resilient in the face of new competition at 1 WTC, with results holding up much better than we expected,” Jed Reagan, an analyst at real estate research firm Green Street Advisors LLC, said in an e-mail. “The continued success of the business underscores the power of the Empire State Building’s global brand.”

Competing Observatories

Still, there may be a limit to tourist demand, according to Reagan. “One has to wonder how much bigger the NYC observatory market pie can really grow,” he said.

The outdoor platform at 1 Vanderbilt will offer views from 1,020 feet. That compares with the 1,100-foot outdoor deck planned at 30 Hudson Yards on the far west side, which developer Related Cos. has called the city’s highest. One World Observatory is higher at 1,268 feet, but it is entirely indoors.

Helping to set 1 Vanderbilt apart will be its proximity to the Chrysler Building, one of New York’s architectural jewels, as well as the Empire State Building, Schiffer of SL Green said.

“Think of how beautiful that will be at night when the Chrysler is fully lit, to be up in the sky looking at its majestic facade,” he said.

I understand what you mean, mostly because they're all in a row, and everything around them is so low-rise it creates sort of a "gap tooth" effect. Hopefully some mid-rise filler rises near by so it's not just a row of monoliths -- it's probably too much to hope for highrises/skyscrapers to go up any further inland in the LES given how violently opposed the neighborhood is to that kind of development. But time will tell. As is, it's a good start in terms of growing the downtown Manhattan skyline northward (and I expect it will look the most awesome when viewed with TriBeCa and FiDi in the background.)

According to this keynote by Stephen Ross (which is great overview of the development for anyone not familiar)...



...there will be 3-4 stone or stone-and-glass facade buildings in the cluster: 50 HY by Norman Foster, 35 HY by David Childs, and Robert AM Stern is designing twin residential towers in the Western Yards (I believe it's the building on the south of the site, with the school abutting the High Line), which if history tells us anything will almost definitely be limestone.

Add to that the black metal paneling of 55 HY, 10 HY's stone columns, the brick residential mid-rises to the south, Heatherwick's brassy Vessel sculpture, more as-yet-unnanounced buildings and sculptures in the Western Yards, and whatever Frank Gehry comes up with for his curvy twins, there will be no shortage of interesting materials at play.

Edit: It's actually not 100% clear which of the Western Yards buildings Frank Gehry is going to be doing. It is possible he's actually doing the office tower, and Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica will do the curvy twins, or vice versa. Looking forward to more info on that.

^ There are a handful of other sites within a block or so of that building. One on Barrow that's wrapping up, another on Barrow where permits were just filled, a new public school on Morton, a conversion of an old previously abandoned warehouse into lofts on Morton, a new rental building on Clarkson, and a about a half dozen new townhouses being built as part of a single new development also on Clarkson.

That's likely just the beginning as well, as UPS and Fed Ex have enormous foot prints in this neighborhood. UPS has a building that is the size of four full city blocks, and Fed Ex has another 2 or 3 full city block facilities. I can't imagine they'll be able to justify the immense hard costs of keeping those facilities for much longer.
