At The Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Place

On June 26, 2018, The Skyscraper Museum presented the 2018 Making New York History Award to Marc Holliday, CEO of SL Green Realty Corp. As New York City’s largest owner of commercial office properties and the dominant landlord in Midtown Manhattan, SL Green owns a portfolio of skyscrapers that embraces both landmark structures and classic modern towers. Now on the rise is One Vanderbilt, midtown's future tallest office building. Led by Marc's vision, SL Green is creating a new icon on the skyline.

The evening's salutes started with an introduction from Skyscraper Museum Director Carol Willis, followed by toasts from colleagues and friends including James von Klemperer, President of KPF and Chair of The Skyscraper Museum, Alicia Glen, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development, Carl Weisbrod, former chairman of the NYC City Planning Commission, and Daniel Tishman, chairman and CEO of Tishman Construction Corporation.
