AECOM Tishman served as CM for owner SL Green on One Vanderbilt, the iconic new 1.6 million SF commercial tower designed by KPF. Midtown’s tallest office building includes retail space, the SUMMIT observation deck, a transit hall in OVA’s pedestrian-friendly base and an adjacent 14,000 SF public plaza.
We made history in 2017 by completing the largest ever continuous concrete pour in Manhattan at the site. More than 8,438 tons of concrete were poured continuously over a span of nineteen hours.
One Vanderbilt, which achieved LEED Platinum and the highest level of WELL certification, has raised the global standard for sustainable design and construction by using a variety of innovative construction methods and materials – 90% of the rebar comes from recycled material, and the formwork comes from sustainably managed forests – as well as putting in place energy efficient systems, keeping a continuous focus on sustainability.
One Vanderbilt topped out in September 2019, two months ahead of schedule, and was delivered one month ahead of schedule, in spite of the pandemic.
