New York is known for a number of things, chief among which is the unique early-20th century Art Deco architecture that gives the city its uniquely classy character, something that is set to be celebrated now in the 21st century with the construction of the One Vanderbilt One tower.

Conceived by Kohn Pedersen Fox, this particular skyscraper is situated in midtown Manhattan and will soar to a height of 427 meters. The building is expected to make use of high-tech green technologies, and is part of a broader planning project that includes the construction of new transit facilities and shopping centers.

Ultimately, the One Vanderbilt Avenue is a great example of Art Deco architecture that makes use of historic design cues while blending these with forward-looking technologies and environmentally friendly elements.
