Heart of Midtown

develop an exciting new culinary concept for One Vanderbilt Avenue, the

Business District.

“One Vanderbilt Avenue is one of those rare buildings that will be a New

York City icon. I was drawn to its stunning design and one of a kind

location. The space being created for the restaurant is simply

extraordinary and well-suited for the fine dining destination I

envision,” said Daniel Boulud. “The level of commitment, care, and

detail that SL Green has brought to this project will become highly

apparent to the tenants in the building and future customers at One


“From the outset of this project, we envisioned that One Vanderbilt

would feature one of the best new dining experiences in New York City,”

said SL Green Chief Executive Officer Marc Holliday. “As a

globally-recognized gastronomic master, Daniel Boulud is the perfect

partner to help develop, at this exceptional address, a top culinary

destination regularly drawing business people from across the Midtown

business district, residents throughout the City, and visitors from

around the world, while also providing a new, unparalleled amenity to

our One Vanderbilt tenants.”

Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) Associates, One Vanderbilt will

encompass an entire city block at the doorstep of Grand Central

Terminal, bounded by Madison and Vanderbilt Avenues to the west and

east, and East 43rd and East 42nd Streets to the north and south. With

1.7 million square feet of 21st century office space, One Vanderbilt

will feature column-free floorplates, unmatched ceiling heights, 360

degree views, expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, and a package of

modern office amenities unrivaled in New York City. This Press Release
