SL Green Taps AECOM’s Tishman Construction to Manage Construction of $1B Office Project in Manhattan

NEW YORK CITY — SL Green Realty Corp. has chosen AECOM’s Tishman Construction unit to manage the construction of One Vanderbilt, a 58-story office development located adjacent to Grand Central Terminal in New York City’s East Midtown business district. The total value of construction for the project is approximately $1 billion.

The skyscraper will contain 1.6 million square feet of Class A commercial space, a public transit hall and a 14,000-square-foot public plaza. The development will also include $220 million worth of public transit improvements to the Grand Central transit hub.

When One Vanderbilt is complete, the building is expected to be the second tallest office tower in New York City, reaching heights of 1,401 square feet, according to Tishman. The tower will be second only to One World Trade Center, which Tishman also built.

Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) designed the building to pay homage to the Grand Central Terminal and fit into the skyline alongside the Chrysler Building, located one block away from the development site.

The developers plan to achieve LEED v4 Gold certification for the project.

Primary construction is scheduled to begin in 2016, with completion expected in 2020.
