Façade installation is continuing on 451 Tenth Avenue, a 45-story residential skyscraper in Hudson Yards. Designed by Handel Architects, developed and constructed by Related Companies, and co-developed with Spitzer Enterprises, the 587-foot-tall structure will also include a restaurant, an Equinox fitness center, and a senior living facility by Atria Senior Living called Coterie Hudson Yards. The market-rate rental units will have access to amenities such as a movie theater, an outdoor swimming pool, and terrace. March and White Design (MAWD) is serving as the interior designer for the senior homes at 451 Tenth Avenue, which rises from a 17,280-square-foot L-shaped plot at the corner of Tenth Avenue and West 35th Street. The property is a short walk to the 7 train at the 34th Street-Hudson Yards subway station, while a little further east are the A, C, E, 1, 2, and 3 and the NJ Transit and Amtrak trains beneath Pennsylvania Station.
Work continues to wrap up on 425 Park Avenue, a 47-story commercial skyscraper in Midtown East. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners for L&L Holding Company, Tokyu Land Corporation, and co-managing partner BentallGreenOak, the 897-foot-tall structure will yield 667,000 square feet of office space and a ground-floor restaurant run by world-renowned Chef Daniel Humm, proprietor of the three Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park.
Several more floors have been added to the reinforced concrete superstructure of 255 West 34th Street, a rising 33-story hotel in Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by Stonehill Taylor Architects and developed by The Chetrit Group, the 397-foot-tall, 155,594-square-foot development will yield 330 guest rooms. Flintlock Construction Services, LLC is the general contractor for the building, which is located on the southern edge of the Garment District between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, right across from One Penn Plaza, Madison Square Garden, and a short walk to the nearby James A. Farley Building and Moynihan Train Hall.
Construction is complete on the steel and glass garden canopy at 550 Madison Avenue, a 684-foot-tall landmarked skyscraper in Midtown East. The triple-height framework is designed by Snøhetta with AECOM Tishman as the general contractor, and is part of a 21,000-square-foot indoor-outdoor renovation of the 38-year-old postmodern office building by The Olayan Group and RXR Realty, along with a revamped lobby designed by Gensler that was completed late last year. The developers are aiming to achieve LEED Platinum and WELL Gold certifications for the building, which is located between East 55th and 56th Streets.

Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, the structure will top out at 1,000 feet and contain a collection of condominiums and associated amenity spaces, boutique office space, a ground-floor retail component, and public recreation space.
