The completion of SL Green Realty Corp.’s One Vanderbilt Ave. also marks a significant milestone for the Midtown transit system. All components of One Vanderbilt’s $220 million transit improvement project, designed by Stantec and funded by SL Green, are now complete and open to the public.
Infrastructure improvements include a 14,000-square-foot pedestrian plaza on Vanderbilt Avenue between Grand Central Terminal and One Vanderbilt. Inside the tower is a 4,000-square-foot public transit hall and series of below-grade ADA-accessible concourses and corridors.
The long-shuttered passageway between Grand Central and the Socony-Mobil Building at 150 E. 42nd Street has re-opened with the addition of two street-level subway entrances and a new entrance to the 42nd Street subway station.
“The completion of One Vanderbilt and the corresponding transit improvements is a testament to the spirit of New York—one that never backs down when faced with challenge,” said Stantec project lead Stéphane Lefebvre.
