Summit One Vanderbilt reveals 1,000-foot-high mirrored art experience


SEPTEMBER 14, 2021
BY DANA SCHULZ


Quote:
Tickets officially go on sale today for Summit One Vanderbilt, the Midtown East tower’s 1,000+ foot observation deck. Previously, we got a look at the two skyboxes that allow guests to stand on completely transparent glass 1,063 feet above Madison Avenue, and now developer SL Green has revealed even more of the sky-high attractions, including an all-glass outdoor elevator (yes, even the floor!) that travels up the side of the building to over 1,200 feet. But perhaps most mesmerizing is an art installation called Air created by Kenzo Digital. Covered on three sides, along with the floor and ceiling, in mirrors, the multisensory experience challenges one’s perception of space and immerses the guest within the fabric of the skyline.

FIRST LOOK AT SUMMIT OBSERVATION DECK ATOP ONE VANDERBILT






Quote:
New York City’s newest observation deck, SUMMIT, atop One Vanderbilt is almost ready for its grand opening on October 21st with ticketing opening today. Differentiating itself from the other existing observation decks across New York City, SUMMIT One Vanderbilt is designed as an immersive experience with multiple attractions within three floors (the 91st to 93rd floors), all designed to thrill.

One of the first attractions shown to the public was “Levitation” consists of foot-tingling, perfectly transparent sky boxes that make it seem like you are floating over a thousand feet above Madison Avenue. With two side-by-side sky boxes, you can capture photographs looking straight on to the sky boxes, or from the other sky box looking in.
Quote:
The newest part of SUMMIT, entitled “Air” is an Instagrammer’s dream — a fully mirrored room that feels like you’ve stepped into an M.C. Escher creation (bring your sunglasses on a very sunny day). Air is designed by Kenzo Digital, of Kenzo Digital Immersive, who told us on a press visit a few days ago that he envisions it as a “Love letter to New York.” The experience of “Air” unfolds in multiple chapters, beginning right after you pass through a frictionless, contactless security gate, with a full sound and light journey through a hallway that leads to an elevator. The elevator takes you up 1,000 feet in just 42 seconds, with the immersive experience continuing.
Quote:
At the 91st floor, you enter the two-floor mirrored experience. It’s a full, disorienting immersion into Midtown Manhattan, where the streets are simultaneously below and above you, the sky is all around you, and the people you see can be strangers walking on the streets a thousand feet below, someone you came with, or people standing above you. “It’s meant to be different every time you go…it’s like a living organism.,” says Kenzo. The space changes color and dimension depending on the weather, what’s happening in the city below, and what’s happening in the space itself. It may be one of the few observation decks where “you would want to be here” for a thunderstorm, predicts Kenzo. There will be additional chapters of “Air” which will be ready by the opening date.
Quote:
The final thrill seeking highlight begins off the open-air, wrap-around terrace on the 93rd floor (outside of the Snøhetta-designed Nordic-themed cafe curated by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Events). “Ascent” is a large glass elevator with a transparent floor that takes guests up the side of One Vanderbilt to a spot over 1,200 feet in the air.

If immersive experiences are not your thing, the views from Summit are worth it, provided the close proximity the skyscraper now provides to iconic, landmark skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building (which has yet to get its own observation deck back) and the Empire State Building. There are new perspectives of the Met Life Building, 432 Park Avenue, and other buildings, as well as views north to Central Park and beyond..
Quote:
Summit is the latest opening inside One Vanderbilt, a skyscraper by SL Green located just next to Grand Central Terminal. In May of this year, Le Pavillon, a restaurant from Daniel Boulud opened.

Tickets to Summit will be $39 with special pricing for New York City residents and you can pop by after or before one of our tours of the Secrets of Grand Central!

Tickets on sale for SUMMIT One Vanderbilt ahead of October opening


By Emily Davenport
September 14, 2021


Quote:
SUMMIT One Vanderbilt is a 65,000 square foot, three-level entertainment space that was designed by Snøhetta. The immersive experience took years to conceive and develop by leading experts in the field. SL Green Realty Corp. launches ticket sales on Sept. 14 for the space, which is slated to open on Oct. 21.

“The excitement surrounding SUMMIT One Vanderbilt has been overwhelming. Now that we are finally able to offer a glimpse into the awe-inspiring, multi-level and multi-room immersive art experience that is Air, people will begin to understand how different this destination is from any other in the world,” said Marc Holliday, Chairman and CEO of SL Green. “We can’t wait to welcome New Yorkers and visitors to New York to experience this truly unique destination right in the heart of Manhattan connected to Grand Central Terminal. People are going to want to come back to SUMMIT One Vanderbilt again and again.”
Quote:
SUMMIT One Vanderbilt boasts a unique design that has incredible views of the entire city. The space also has levitation sky boxes that allow guests to step out from the envelope of the building and stand on transparent glass 1,063 feet above Madison Avenue, and Ascent, an all-glass elevator a transparent glass floor, will take guests from the terrace level up the side of the building to over 1,200 feet (364 meters), nesting at the highest viewing point in midtown Manhattan. Guests can also experience the Après sky lounge, the Summit Terrace, an open-air viewing spot that wraps around the south and west sides of One Vanderbilt, and Air, which is SUMMIT One Vanderbilt’s walk-through art experience.

Tickets will start at $39 for adults, with special online discounts for New York City residents. SUMMIT One Vanderbilt will initially be open from Thursdays—Sundays.

^I can't wait to visit this one, it looks like it's going to be amazing. I checked the website, and they're actually warning people to choose their wardrobes carefully, because trying to walk over that mirrored floor in a skirt or dress (or a kilt for the guys) might be really awkward.

I can see that actually causing people to do so.
