SL Green Realty recently got around to filing plans for its much-hyped One Vanderbilt office building near Grand Central Terminal, and new renderings display the clearest vision yet for the 1,500-foot-tall Midtown tower.

While the 63-story, 1.7 million-square-foot building’s rooftop parapet will fall short of Extell Development’s Central Park Tower at 217 West 57th Street, the tower’s roof height will exceed that of One World Trade Center, according to New York YIMBY.

Kohn Pedersen Fox is the architect on the project, which will become the first building in Midtown East to surpass the Chrysler Building – which has long dominated the area’s skyline – in height. The tower is aiming for LEED-Gold certification, while TD Bank will occupy its 200,000-square-foot retail podium.

One Vanderbilt’s tapered rooftop will feature four major setbacks along its uppermost floors – giving the tower a distinct, ornamental look visible from across the five boroughs – while its base will have various features encouraging pedestrian interconnectivity, including direct underground access to Grand Central.

SL Green officially filed plans for One Vanderbilt last month after receiving City Council approval for the project earlier this year.

The real estate investment trust was recently sued by developer Andrew Penson, who claimed in a $1.1 billion suit that his air rights to Grand Central Terminal were rendered useless after the city allowed SL Green to exceed ordinary zoning heights on One Vanderbilt.
