Very few things are as iconic as the skyline of New York City, and the opportunity to redefine it doesn’t come along very often. Designed by KPF, One Vanderbilt will rise 1,401 feet and make its mark on Manhattan when completed in 2020. Neoscape was charged with giving the world a preview of how this instant icon will shape the city for years to come.
One Vanderbilt represents the next evolution in the Manhattan skyline. To demonstrate its significance and tie it back to the city’s history, we choreographed every image to include some element of a New York City icon to help place the new building in its proper historical context. At the same time, we had to show the majestic presence of the building within the existing skyline, relating it to the layered language of its peers, the Chrysler and Empire State Buildings.
