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.
Excavation is getting deeper at 451 Tenth Avenue in Hudson Yards, site of a 580-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper from Handel Architects. Bryan Cho of Related Companies filed permits in early June 2019 for the 44-story building, which will rise directly to the north of 66 Hudson Boulevard, Bjarke Ingels‘ supertall known as The Spiral. A great deal of earth has been excavated from the lot, a former parking lot located between West 35th and 36th Streets and Tenth Avenue and Hudson Boulevard. Spitzer Enterprises is co-developing alongside Related.
