Developer of One Vanderbilt in NYC to Contribute $200 million of Transit Improvements

Matt Ball on September 9, 2014 - in Design/Engineering, Land Development, Transit, Transportation

One Vanderbilt, the office tower being developed by SL Green and designed by Kohn Pederson Fox, will be New York City’s second tallest building once it rises a block west of Grand Central Terminal. And with it will come $200 million of transit infrastructure improvements, provided by the developer, that were a condition of the Midtown East Rezoning that allowed the tower height being approved.

Today, the specifics of those improvements were released. One Vanderbilt will include a new subway entrance on 42nd Street, a new corridor and escalators connecting trains (the 4, 5, 6, 7, Shuttle, and Metro-North) to the under-construction LIRR East Side Access concourse, a 4,000 square-foot, ground-level indoor transit hall, and a public plaza between 42nd and 43rd Street on Vanderbilt.
