13 May Summit One Vanderbilt, The World’s Most Immersive Cultural Experience And Observatory, Launches On October 21
SL Green Realty Corp. (NYSE: SLG) revealed plans for Summit One Vanderbilt, a story-driven, immersive experience and observatory located in the crown of One Vanderbilt, the skyline-defining new tower in the heart of Manhattan standing 1,401 feet tall. Summit One Vanderbilt is connected directly to Grand Central Terminal in the center of Manhattan and will be the latest in a series of anticipated openings at One Vanderbilt as part of the $3.3 billion development, including Michelin starred Chef Daniel Boulud’s Le Pavillon.
Summit One Vanderbilt is a new, innovative destination that combines unparalleled vistas, curated multi-sensory experiences and cutting-edge technology to offer an unprecedented guest experience spanning art, nature, and design. It is produced by SL Green with the immersive art experience designed by Kenzo Digital and interior design by Snøhetta. Culinary offerings will be led by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Events.
Launching on October 21, Summit One Vanderbilt provides way more than just spectacular views, it will redefine the way people experience the intersection between nature and the built environment. It will include an all-glass enclosed elevator called Ascent which travels up the outside of the building to breathtaking views that soar at 1,210 feet above New York City. Adventurers will also enjoy stepping out into fully transparent glass sky boxes called Levitation that jut out of the building and suspend guests 1,063 feet above Madison Avenue. The Summit features an outdoor bar, seating areas to enjoy the magnificent views and the highest urban outdoor alpine meadow in the world.
The excitement will continue this summer when Kenzo Digital unveils the design for a category breaking immersive art installation that brings novel storytelling to Summit One Vanderbilt. The installation takes the canvas of an observation deck and elevates it into a transcendent and euphoric experience.
The four-level entertainment space is 65,000 square feet and has taken years to conceive, design and develop. As recreation and tourism rebound in New York City, Summit One Vanderbilt is ideally located in the heart of Midtown, directly connected to Grand Central Terminal, making it an easy access point for all.
