Construction is currently ahead of schedule on One Madison Avenue, a 1.4-million-square-foot, 27-story office tower expansion in Manhattan’s historic Flatiron District. As of today, 100 percent of demolition work is complete and structural reinforcement is underway.
This week chef Daniel Boulud and SL Green celebrated the opening of Le Pavillion, an 11,000-square-foot culinary oasis at One Vanderbilt. The restaurant occupies the tower’s second floor at the corner of Vanderbilt Avenue and 42nd Street.
Yesterday SL Green Realty Corp. unveiled their plans for Summit One Vanderbilt, the new observatory space located in the crown of One Vanderbilt, a 1,401-foot-tall commercial supertall in Midtown East. Opening on October 21st, the 65,000-square-foot experience center will top the 77-story skyscraper designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and deliver views of all five boroughs. One Vanderbilt encompasses an entire block immediately to the west of Grand Central Terminal with Summit One Vanderbilt directly connected directly to the massive transit hub. Interiors of Summit One Vanderbilt are designed by Snøhetta with art installations by Kenzo Digital.
Construction activity is underway at One Madison Avenue in the Flatiron District, where the 13-story full-block structure is being renovated and expanded with a new 18-story addition. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by SL Green, the project will stand 27 stories and yield 1.4 million square feet of Class A office space. Helping to develop and finance One Madison Avenue’s future are the National Pension Service of Korea and Hines, contributing a grand total of $1.25 billion in construction financing. The property is bound by East 23rd Street to the south, Madison Avenue and Madison Square Park to the west, East 24th Street to the north, and Park Avenue South to the east.
Work is moving along on the observatory in One Vanderbilt, a 1,401-foot-tall commercial supertall in Midtown East and number four on our countdown of the tallest buildings under construction in the city. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by SL Green, the 77-story skyscraper occupies a full-block parcel immediately to the west of Grand Central Terminal. Though the $1.4 billion property has been officially open since its ribbon-cutting ceremony in mid September, the indoor-outdoor observatory dubbed The Summit isn’t due to welcome the public until October 2021.
