YIMBY got a sneak peek of the views from One Vanderbilt‘s future three-story, indoor and outdoor observatory, which is situated 1,020 feet above Midtown East. The upcoming 77-story supertall office skyscraper is designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by SL Green. The tapering steel structure will soon terminate in a staggered, illuminated crown topped with an architectural spire that will push the project’s total height to 1,401 feet.
Work is getting nearer to completion at The Warehouse, aka 520 West 20th Street, a mixed-use office development in West Chelsea. Located between West 19th and West 20th Street in close proximity to the High Line, the project is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Elijah Equities. The 50-foot-tall brick section that makes up the bottom portion of the superstructure is finally being revealed with the disassembly of the white netting and scaffolding, while construction of the cantilevering steel structure that sits above it has topped out, bringing the total height to 105 feet tall.
Gensler will appear before New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission on Thursday, August 6 with proposals to construct a three-floor penthouse addition atop a historic commercial building in Chelsea, Manhattan.
