The community board task force reviewing SL Green’s plans for 1 Vanderbilt is expected to oppose it at a public hearing tonight.

The members of Community Board 5 and 6 on the task force said they would only approve the project if the public entrance is relocated to Grand Central Terminal and the goals altered for LEED certification.

“This process provides a road map for how to get to the right outcome, and I certainly will take their views seriously,” City Council member Daniel Garodnick told Crain’s.

Representatives for SL Green said those changes are not feasible. After the task force provides its opinion, the community boards will vote on the developer’s applications for three special permits.

“We have been working closely with the task force, understand the issues that have been raised and will continue our dialogue with the community as we advance toward approval,” SL Gren’s Robert Schiffer, managing director at SL Green, said in a statement.

In October, SL Green decided to extend the height of its tower to 1,514 feet from 1,450 feet, as reported. [Crain’s] Mark Maurer
