One Vanderbilt, soon to rise 1,400 feet, is now a big hole in the ground

New, 4 comments

Construction on the forthcoming supertall skyscraper is moving forward

Now that a lawsuit that sought to block the rise of One Vanderbilt has been dismissed, construction on the supertall skyscraper—soon to loom 1,401 feet over Midtown East—is moving right along. YIMBY reports that excavation work has begun at the site of the tower, which will rise on the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Avenue.

In fact, construction has been underway for some time; there’s even Instagram and Twitter accounts for the building that provide regular updates on its progress. So far, it’s just a big hole in the ground, but expect that to change pretty quickly now that developer SL Green can move forward unencumbered.
