The site is bound by Kent Avenue to the east, Metropolitan Avenue to the south, River Street to the west, and North 3rd Street to the north.
Last week, the top half of One Vanderbilt‘s 100-foot-tall architectural spire was finally replaced at the pinnacle of the 77-story Midtown East supertall. The spire was first put in place when the 1,401-foot-tall skyscraper topped out on September 18, 2019, but was disassembled in mid-December to make it easier for the construction crane to swing about. The reinstallation marks a major construction milestone for the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed office tower, which is getting close to completion.
