SL Green Realty Corp. has launched ticket sales for SUMMIT One Vanderbilt, its new midtown observatory experience.
The 65,000 s/f four-level entertainment space was created by a team of experts in design and architecture. Snøhetta designed the interior as a sensory urban experience that lifts visitors into the sky.
It includes Air, a walk-through immersive art experience designed by Kenzo Digital, world-class food and beverage options and an outdoor terrace with the highest urban alpine meadow in the Western hemisphere.
Thrill seekers can visit One Vanderbilt’s Levitation sky boxes (above) that allow guests to step out from the envelope of the building and stand on transparent glass 1,063 feet above Madison Avenue.
For the extreme thrill seeker, SUMMIT One Vanderbilt’s Ascent is an all-glass elevator with a transparent glass floor, that will take guests from the terrace level up the side of the building, to over 1,200 feet, nesting at the highest viewing point in midtown Manhattan.
The final stops on the SUMMIT One Vanderbilt journey are Apres and the SUMMIT Terrace. Apres is SUMMIT One Vanderbilt’s sky-high lounge and café curated by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Events. Apres offerings can be enjoyed inside the Nordic themed lounge and café designed by Snøhetta or outside on the Summit Terrace.
The SUMMIT Terrace (above) wraps around the south and west sides of One Vanderbilt and is the perfect open air viewing spot to take in the incredible views for up to 80 miles while toasting your experience at SUMMIT One Vanderbilt.
“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.”
Initially, SUMMIT One Vanderbilt will be open Thursday – Sunday and ticket prices will start at $39 for adults. Special pricing for New York City residents is also available online only.
