YIMBY recently went on a hard-hat tour of Kohn Pedersen Fox’s One Vanderbilt. The topped-out 1,401-foot supertall is currently the tallest skyscraper in Midtown East and the third tallest in the city by architectural height, when measured to the tip of the 100-foot-tall spire. SL Green is the developer of the 77-story commercial office property, which is set to have a three-story indoor and outdoor observatory perched 1,020 feet above the busy Midtown streets. The crown will eventually be covered in a glass curtain wall that should most likely be lighter in appearance than the mixed terracotta and glass assembly that covers the rest of the structure.
