The huge two-building, 392-unit rental development at 525 West 52nd Street in Hell’s Kitchen looks like it could be ready for tenants soon. Tectonic brings YIMBY a look at how construction is coming along at the site between 10 and 11th avenues.
The former railyard on the Weehawken waterfront has slowly blossomed into a new neighborhood, complete with upscale residential buildings, shops, and restaurants.

Industrious photographer Tectonic brings us a look at the construction, which has risen several stories along the Hudson River.
After a decade of waiting, Jean Nouvel’s 53 West 53rd Street, formerly known as the Torre Verre and now known as 53W53, is finally climbing into the New York City skyline. And while the tower only stands about a dozen floors at the moment — up from only a handful when YIMBY last checked in on the site this past June — installation of its iconic cladding and glass has already begun, with the latest update thanks to YIMBY Forumer streetscaper.
Windows are going in on the 21-story residential project at 221 West 29th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues in Chelsea, near the northern border with the Garment District. Tectonic swung by the site recently and brought back some shots of the progress.
