Notice how thin steel columns are compering to 1WTC or 30 HY - buildings of similar height.

I"m just ready to see that crane soaring over the sight, then we'll really be in business.

Firms moving to One Vanderbilt worry about observation deck

By Lois Weiss
August 9, 2017


Quote:
Some of the financial firms eyeing a move to the $3.1 billion One Vanderbilt may be having mixed emotions over the impact of the observation deck planned for floors close to the twisty top of the 1,301-foot-high skyscraper.

While tourists and New Yorkers alike love to gawk at killer views made available to the masses from such decks, the C-suite occupants of the building seem to be worried the extra visitors could interfere with their own employees.

Let’s recall that so far, 30 Hudson Yards having an observation deck hasn’t deterred Time Warner or other large office tenants from taking dibs at the far West Side building, or concerned tenants at the Big Apple’s observatory champ, the Empire State Building — or at Rockefeller Center.

And remember, the 1.7-million-square-foot One Vandy sits next to one of the world’s greatest transportation hubs on East 42nd Street, which already counts 19.2 million annual visitors.

SL Green is also installing $220 million in transit improvements at One Vandy that will include a block-long dedicated pedestrian area on Vanderbilt Avenue, an underground concourse to create East Side access for 65,000 Long Island Rail Road passengers and a huge waiting room under its base.

That makes the thought of execs turning their noses up at a projected 1.8 million yearly observatory goers almost laughable — after all, the location is literally at Grand Central Terminal and the observatory will be accessed from an underground passage through one of its main concourses.

Sources tell me that developer SL Green Realty Corp. and its partners, the National Pension Service of Korea and Hines, proposed — perhaps in jest — that the concerned firms simply make up the observatory’s projected $42 million in net revenue (from $77 million in gross proceeds) and they will boot the observatory.

“That is 1,000 percent not true. They are committed to building the observatory,” a spokeswoman for SL Green said.

“This is a laughable premise,” she added. “World-class observatories have helped establish New York’s most iconic addresses and attract top tenants — in fact, every potential tenant we talk to loves it.”

New York City Council Approves Rezoning Plan for Midtown Manhattan

By PATRICK McGEEHAN
AUG. 9, 2017


Quote:
The City Council on Wednesday unanimously approved a rezoning for a section of Midtown Manhattan that is likely to make the area even more densely packed with high-rise office buildings but that promises to yield improvements to subway stations and public spaces.

The change will also allow several buildings with landmark status, including St. Patrick’s Cathedral, to transfer their unused development rights to building sites anywhere in the affected 78-block area. The rezoned blocks, known as East Midtown, run from East 39th Street to East 57th Street, from Third to Madison Avenues.

...Large employers have been leaving that part of Midtown for state-of-the-art buildings at the Hudson Yards project on the Far West Side or at the new World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan. City officials have been seeking ways to increase East Midtown’s appeal since Michael R. Bloomberg was mayor.

...The change could result in more ultra-tall towers like One Vanderbilt, which is going up near Grand Central Terminal and will be nearly as tall as the Empire State Building. When all of the additional development rights have been used in a decade or two, the Chrysler Building could cease to stand out on the Midtown skyline.

Before all of the new towers can sprout, developers must strike deals with the owners of landmark buildings like St. Patrick’s. The cathedral has not made full use of development rights for the block it occupies on Fifth Avenue opposite Rockefeller Center, and can now sell the rest, totaling about 1.1 million square feet.

Exactly correct -- when I mention to people this is going to be as big (bigger really) than the Empire State Building, they're always kind of aghast/amazed.

I love the visuals of the crane finally rising over the site. I'll be away for a couple of weeks, so when I get back I expect to see more steel rising above the sidewalks.

Can't believe this will only be the 4th tallest, not even counting other proposals right now that are taller.

Even though this won't be the tallest, it'll for sure be the most impressive/identifiable of the most recent group of supertalls getting built imo.
