Exterior work is nearing completion on The Set, a 44-story residential skyscraper at 451 Tenth Avenue in Hudson Yards. Designed by Handel Architects and developed and built by Related Companies, the 587-foot-tall structure yields 270 rental units in studio to two-bedroom layouts, with optional full furnishing available. MAWD was the interior designer for the project, which is located at the corner of Tenth Avenue and West 35th Street.
Almost all of the remaining earth-toned terracotta panels have been installed between the floor-to-ceiling windows since our last update in March 2022, with just a few sections remaining on the southeast corner where the construction elevator had been attached. Sidewalk scaffolding still surrounds the property, but should be removed in the coming weeks once the final exterior panels are in place.
Below are photographs of the finished back side facing the Hudson River.
All units feature nine-foot ceiling heights and European wide-plank oak flooring. Fully furnished homes come with living room TVs, custom Italian millwork, custom closets, cookware and kitchen tools, home linens by Matouk, and art curated by Sugarlift gallery. Services include weekly housekeeping, in-home package and grocery delivery, smart home and internet setup prior to move in, laundry and dry cleaning pick-up and delivery, a 24/7 lobby concierge, and access to the Directors of Experience, a service that assists with special requests and private event planning. Unfurnished residences come with Wolf appliances, custom Italian cabinetry, smart-home technology, and weekly housekeeping services.
Select homes come with access to The Set Club, a resident-only social club on the 43rd story. The space features a rooftop swimming pool with cabanas and lounge chairs, an office space with private conference rooms and virtual meeting technology, a fitness center with virtual fitness equipment and immersive in-person fitness and wellness classes, an outdoor terrace with BBQ pods and seating near the pool area, and a loft with a lounge, a private event space, and a demonstration kitchen. The club also includes a fully stocked bar with food and beverages, a game room with bar-inspired games, a VR room with a golf simulator, and a dining room.
The Set also features Greywind, a public restaurant from chef Dan Kluger featuring a chef’s counter and dining room, an all-day bakery, and a cocktail bar. Greywind has a private residential entrance and offers building residents preferential reservations and room service.
Occupancy has already begun, with move-ins starting last September 30. Exterior work should reach full completion by early spring.
