SL Green has decided to extend the height of its 1.6 million-square-foot office tower project One Vanderbilt  — to 1,514 feet from 1,450 feet.

One Vanderbilt and Extell Development’s Nordstrom Tower at 217 West 57th Street – at 1,775 feet — are both slated to surpass the height of CIM Group’s 1,379-foot-tall project 432 Park. One Vanderbilt, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, is expected to be complete by early 2020.

East Midtown Task Force and other groups are mulling the city’s plan to rezone the area surrounding One Vanderbilt for greater office density. SL Green recently detailed its $210 million transit improvement proposal near Grand Central Terminal, as The Real Deal reported. [NY YIMBY]Mark Maurer
