NYC Mayor Cuts Ribbon for One Vanderbilt – Fourth Tallest Building in the City

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of the One Vanderbilt skyscraper.

The event takes place nearly four years after its groundbreaking in October 2016. The 67 floor and 1.6 million square foot building stands directly to the west of Grand Central Terminal.

The 42nd Street property, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox is managed by SL Green Realty Corp.

“ … everyone, look, we are celebrating one extraordinary site, one extraordinary building. We’re celebrating this beautiful plaza, but we’re celebrating something much greater,” said Mayor de Blasio.  “This is one of the first and most tangible signs of the rebirth of New York City, right here today. And everyone who has been a part of this is contributing to that rebirth. I want to thank all the elected officials who are here.”

Following is a Twitter post from NYPD Chief Terence Monahan:
