The two KPF-designed Manhattan projects have been honored across three awards, including the Commercial Lobby/Amenity Space, Outdoor Space, and NYC’s Shining Moments categories.
One Vanderbilt is Midtown’s tallest office building, reaching 1,400 feet. Blending public enterprise and the private realm, the mixed-use tower offers cutting-edge office space and, located next to Grand Central Terminal, forms a new doorstep to the city. The project is a finalist in the Commercial Lobby/Amenity Space category, honored for lobby’s bronze “art wall” installation, the building’s direct connection to the Terminal, and for the 14,000 square-foot pedestrian plaza.
Edge, the 7,500-square-foot outdoor observation deck at 30 Hudson Yards, cantilevers 80 feet from the building’s 100th floor. As the tallest of its type in the western hemisphere, Edge offers 360-degree views of the city with angled, mullion-free glass panels surrounding the deck. Featuring a 225-square-foot glass floor, allowing visitors to look below onto Manhattan’s busy streets, Edge is a finalist in the Outdoor Space category. The project designed by KPF and Rockwell Group is also a finalist in NYC’s Shining Moment category.
