NY YIMBY has spotted a couple new (and one old) renderings of impending megatower One Vanderbilt, and, although developer SL Green clarifies that these are not the final renderings and that
the design continues to be revised [edit: see update at the bottom of the post], they do give a better idea of what the tower may eventually look like. Of note is the glassy base, which YIMBY describes as having "an Apple Cube-like entryway." When the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed tower is finished, it will be the second tallest in New York City, at 1,450 feet. The developers hope to begin demolition on the existing buildings at the site in 2015, while the $200 million in transit infrastructure improvements that they had to promise in order to be allowed to build such a tall tower are just about to enter the public review process.
UPDATE: Turns out these renderings are not new, and have, in fact, been around for months, and the design of base has been slightly modified since they were made. Curbed regrets the error. The most current versions of the renderings are after the jump.
