AECOM’s unit Tishman Construction has been appointed to manage construction of an $1bn commercial office development in Manhattan, New York.
The 1,401ft-tall skyscraper, called One Vanderbilt, will be located in the heart of New York’s East Midtown business district.
The 58-storey building will feature 149,000sq m of Class A commercial space, a public transit hall at the base of the building connected to a 1,300sq m public plaza, and $220M of public transit improvements to the Grand Central transit hub.
Upon completion, the project is expected to be the second-tallest office tower in New York City.
Tishman will construct the office building, expected to achieve LEED v4 Gold certification, for New York City-based commercial property owner, SL Green Realty Corp.
AECOM’s chairman and CEO Michael Burke said: “As the quintessential New York builder, we are proud that SL Green is entrusting us to build this iconic structure that will help reshape the skyline.
“We are excited to extend our expertise in delivering the highest-performance buildings as part of the dramatic transformation underway in Midtown East, one of the premier business districts in the world.”
Construction work is set to commence in 2016 and is expected to be complete in 2020.
