Work on 460 Main Street, aka Riverwalk 8, has topped out. One of the newest developments to rise on Roosevelt Island, the project contains the first permanent affordable housing to be built on the island. The 21-story, 340-unit building is designed by Handel Architects and is being developed as a joint venture between The Related Companies and Hudson Companies. Riverwalk 8 is the eighth component in the nine-building Riverwalk rental complex.
YIMBY user Thomas Koloski recently photographed New York City from above, capturing the prodigious swaths of construction transforming the skylines of Lower Manhattan, Midtown, and beyond. Below are a number of major sites that are taking shape, some of which are nearing topping off and set to be completed in 2020.
YIMBY has a preliminary rendering of what could become one of the tallest skyscrapers to rise in Jersey City and all of the state. Applicant Tower Cove Jersey City Urban Renewal is planning to construct a 950-unit mixed-use structure at 444 Washington Street, just steps away from the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway and directly behind the two-building, five-story Avalon Cove housing complex. The image shows the tower standing at the southeastern corner of Washington Street and Thomas Gangemi Drive.
This week YIMBY checked out 75 Nassau Street, the planned site of a striking tree-topped residential skyscraper designed by ODA and developed by Lexin Capital. Located in the Financial District, the plot from which the 498-foot-tall, 312,000-square-foot tower is due to rise currently sits empty, with no recent signs of activity since the demolition of five buildings that once stood on the land.
Work is finishing up on 151 Mercer Street, the new four-story flagship store for Tory Burch. O’Neil Langan Architects designed the 10,000-square-foot SoHo project, which replaces an old two-story garage that formerly occupied the site. Located between West Houston Street and Prince Street, the building’s dark steel cladding and indented windows give it a sleek, modern look that contrasts with the adjacent brick structures and the cobblestone-street aesthetics of the neighborhood.
