Exterior work is wrapping up on 100 Franklin Street in Tribeca, a residential building designed, developed, and built by DDG. The intricate 200-foot-long stretch of hand-laid Petersen Tegl bricks that enclose the main six- and eight-story eastern profile is complete, revealing a number of subtle and distinctive details. The development is located in the Tribeca East Historic District on a narrow triangular property and yields a total of ten full-floor residences. Douglas Elliman is in charge of sales for the units, which range from 1,427 to 3,673 square feet.
Work on the installation of the glass and brick fenestration for 460 Main Street, aka Riverwalk 8, has reached the roof parapet. Now most of the activity has shifted to finishing the ground-floor exterior of the 21-story, 341-unit building, located on Roosevelt Island and designed by Handel Architects. This will be the eighth component in the nine-building Riverwalk Park rental complex, which is developed as a joint venture between Related Companies and Hudson Companies.
Demolition has been gradually progressing at 10-20 West 57th Street in Midtown, the site of a proposed 52-story skyscraper from Skidmore Owings & Merrill and Solow Realty & Development Group.

The majority of the structure would be devoted to residential space, with 202,738 feet spread across 80 units.
YIMBY took a quick look at the current state of 21 Greenwich Avenue. Proposals from BKSK Architects call for a renovation of the 179-year-old corner property and the construction of an attached five-story edifice that would replace an abutting one-story structure. The new building will have a mixed façade of floor-to-ceiling glass, steel details, and brick masonry. The design firm previously submitted its plans to the Landmarks Preservation Commission and is awaiting approval. Higgins Quasebarth & Partners is credited as the preservation consultant for 21 Greenwich Avenue.
