Bonjour, 42nd Street!
Marking a culinary and commercial-property coup, Daniel Boulud will launch a large restaurant at One Vanderbilt, SL Green’s 1,400-foot-tall skyscraper now rising next to Grand Central Terminal.
The planned, 11,000 square-foot venue adds instant additional cachet to the 1.6 million square-foot office tower that’s scheduled to open by 2020.
Thus far, just one tenant, TD Bank, has signed for 200,000 square feet on the Midtown tower.
Boulud’s name lends the KPF-designed project the glamour of a famed, New York-based superchef as SL Green talks to firms that are considering moving there — JP Morgan Chase among them.
