At the beginning of 2018, One Vanderbilt Avenue was only just rising above its retail podium. While it was as wide as it would ever be, it was hard to imagine the inevitable future height that the Midtown has already reached. When complete, the supertall will be the fourth tallest skyscraper in New York City, competing with the Billionaires Row and FiDi Supertalls, and now it’s finally piercing the Midtown plateau. Work is about three or four floors below the 808-foot-tall Metlife building, meaning One Vanderbilt is well past half its full height of 1,401 feet. Hines and SL Green are responsible for the development.
