Construction has topped out on 451 Tenth Avenue, a 587-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Hudson Yards. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Related Companies, the 45-story project stands on an L-shaped plot at the corner of Tenth Avenue and West 35th Street.
Since our last update in early April, the reinforced concrete superstructure has been completed and work has progressed significantly on the floor-to-ceiling curtain wall.
The construction crane has been removed from the western corner of the building and the safety cocoon netting has been fully dissembled from the crown. On the lower floors of the eastern elevation are black metal brackets attached to the cinderblock walls in preparation for the installation of final exterior surface. A thin blue membrane covers this series of narrow walls. Meanwhile, the back side facing the Hudson River is also seeing its windows installed on the inside portion of the L-shaped massing. A blank party wall is found on the westernmost portion, and several mini stepped setbacks are found on the podium levels of 451 Tenth Avenue.
Below are several renderings that depict a light and dark color scheme for the curtain wall of 451 Tenth Avenue. Both equally utilize curved terracotta panels between the floor-to-ceiling windows. We don’t know which approach will be implemented, though the first sections of these panels could begin installation in the coming weeks.
451 Tenth Avenue will include a restaurant, an Equinox fitness center, a senior living facility, and market-rate rental units with amenities including a movie theater and an outdoor swimming pool and terrace.
Construction is slated for completion in October 2022, as indicated on the on-site construction board.
