You know, I just saw that spire lit up in blue a little while ago, and thought in no way could that be Vanderbilt. But log on here, and there it is! An early Christmas present. Now to get the crown lit.

My attempts at a distant shot. I'm so happy they decided to light it up right away, a new marker on the skyline.

It can be lit many more colors too, on someone's Instagram story it was seen lit green and red

Although its 1,250′, the communications antenna and lightning rod give it a refined look that has stood the test of time since it was added. It would be nice for that to count... and its quite bulky too.



Similar gripes for the Sears tower, which sadly, those two antennas do not count, although give it an exquisite look IMO. Imagine Sears without the antenna, it would ruin the look.
Yep, every drawing, souvenir and depiction of Sears shows it with the two masts. Same with JHC.

Agreed, architectural height is subjective in any case, plus there's not much real physical difference between a spire and an antenna, they're both just massive metal needles. An antenna has a purpose to boot.

Wow this tower. I remember seeing the renderings of the tower and disliking the horizontal lines. Wasn't sure how the crown would turn out (value-engineering PTSD). Good golly the final product is beyond what I had imagined. It is a master-class supertall, with an elegant and landmark crown. God Bless NYC and the architect Kohn Pedersen Fox.

Similar thoughts from me. Like Foster's Hearst Tower, this one won me over big time.

SL Green’s One Vanderbilt Avenue Tops Out at 1,401 Feet
The Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed skyscraper redefines the Manhattan skyline


September 19, 2019


Quote:
SL Green Realty Corp., New York City’s largest office landlord, today announced that its game-changing One Vanderbilt office tower in Manhattan’s East Midtown has topped out at 1,401 feet. With construction managed by AECOM Tishman and stunning design by Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) Associates, One Vanderbilt’s construction is more than three months ahead of schedule and $100 million under budget with an expected opening in August 2020. One Vanderbilt is already 59 percent leased by top-tier global finance, law and real estate firms which will have direct access to Grand Central Terminal along with an impressive slate of unmatched office amenities.
Quote:
"Taking its rightful place on New York’s iconic skyline, One Vanderbilt will establish a state-of-the-art work environment in New York with unprecedented amenities, including exceptional ceiling heights, incredible views, and direct access to transit networks in the heart of East Midtown,” said Marc Holliday, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of SL Green. “Thanks to our construction partners and their talented, hardworking crews, we’re extremely proud that One Vanderbilt has topped out ahead of schedule and under budget, especially given the project’s scale and infrastructural complexity. With the building scheduled to open in less than a year, the next generation of office space in New York is well in sight.”

“We are excited to have reached this key milestone ahead of schedule and under budget, as we have every other milestone throughout the life of this important project,” said Jay Badame, President of AECOM Tishman. “No one is building more supertall buildings in New York City than our hardworking AECOM Tishman team and we are incredibly proud of the work we are doing at One Vanderbilt with SL Green and Hines as they transform Midtown East.”
Quote:
SL Green’s unprecedented $220 million private investment to improve Grand Central’s public transit infrastructure has already materialized with new staircases between the mezzanine and platform levels of the 4, 5, and 6 subway lines. Other planned transit investments include a transit hall linking Grand Central Terminal to the Long Island Rail Road station as part of the East Side Access project, enhanced connections to Metro-North and the shuttle to Times Square, and two new street-level subway entrances. The tower will also contain a 4,000-square-foot public transit hall for commuters in the building’s northeast corner and an adjacent 14,000-square-foot pedestrian plaza on Vanderbilt Avenue between East 42nd and 43rd Streets.

Anchoring the modernization of East Midtown, One Vanderbilt will provide tenants with a combination of amenities unrivaled in New York City, including a 30,000-square-foot tenant-only amenity floor with large format meeting spaces, club-style lounge, curated food offerings and extraordinary outdoor terrace.

The building will also include an 11,000-square-foot high-design restaurant from world-renowned chef Daniel Boulud. The office floors will feature floor-to-ceiling slab heights ranging from 14.5 feet to 24 feet, column-free floor plates, stunning 360-degree views through floor-to-ceiling windows and best-in-class infrastructure.

Sorry if this was answered before; but is the spire lighting going to be dynamic?
