When you get into an elevator and push up you never imagine going above the clouds to an experience that only could only happen in a Willy Wonka movie where a Great Glass Elevator is Willy Wonka’s means of quick transportation in his factory. That is until now.
As we all know and appreciate, New York is constantly evolving and changing. We are constantly getting bigger and better. That has not changed with one of our newest skyscrapers, One Vanderbilt. If you haven’t seen the latest addition to our skyline, you are missing out. In fact, we can’t believe this wasn’t a part of our landscape until now. How did we do without it. The building looks like a classic New York skyscraper but has all the bells and whistles you might find in the newest buildings that may seem too futuristic for our city.
The building includes 67-floors. One Vanderbilt is very tall. To be specific, it measures 1,401 feet in height. The building is the city’s fourth-tallest building after One World Trade Center, Central Park Tower and 111 West 57th Street. The location is just west of Grand Central Terminal and central to everything.
One Vanderbilt anchors the modernization of Manhattan and shines like a beacon to the world with its iconic shape setting a new standard for architecture in New York. One Vanderbilt is the tallest commercial skyscraper in Midtown Manhattan and among the top 30 tallest buildings in the world.
