Though the ultimate fate of a proposal to rezone Midtown East remains in limbo, SL Green is forging ahead with new plans for its 67-story One Vanderbilt.

The project, which will be built under a special permit, is to be designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox. According to new illustrations released by New York YIMBY, the rooftop will measure 1,350 feet, while the skyscraper’s tower looks to stretch to roughly 1,450 Feet Above 42nd Street — a height that would make the structure New York City’s second-tallest building, trailing only One World Trade Center. And if one pending adjustment makes its way through, the tower could stand one foot taller still, topping Chicago’s Willis Tower and making One Vanderbilt the Western Hemisphere’s second tallest building.

Plans for One Vanderbilt’s lower levels call for 27,000 square feet of restaurant space and 53,000 square feet of retail space, according to YIMBY. The building will have just over 1 million square feet of office space, with 246,000 square feet reserved for trading floors. There will also be another 343,500 square feet of unusable space, giving the building a total spread of 1.8 million square feet.

No formal completion date for the planned tower has been announced, though SL Green is reportedly in talks with TD Bank as a possible anchor tenant. [New York YIMBY] Julie Strickland
