The SUMMIT Story
SUMMIT One Vanderbilt was conceived as an installation that compels you to question your perception of the built environment, the natural world around you, and your sensorial reality.
Construction of One Vanderbilt included New York City’s largest continuous concrete pour, totaling 4,200 cubic yards over a period of 18 hours.
The tuned mass damper, installed in the crown of the building to reduce vibrations and swaying, weighs 10 tons.
SUMMIT’s Ascent is the highest rack-and-pinion elevator system in the world, and at 90 square feet each, the largest glass floor elevators in the world.
100% of building construction was completed with union labor.
