The Graduate Hotel and the Verizon Tech Center properties are the final pieces of the Skidmore, Owings & Merrill-designed Cornell Tech master plan, which was developed by Hudson Companies, Related Companies, and Brookfield and rises south of the Queensboro Bridge’s central span.

Construction has topped out on 456 Greenwich Street, a 110-foot-tall, eight-story hotel building in Tribeca. Developed by Caspi Development and designed by Stephen B.

The site is bound by Greenwich Street to the east, Desbrosses Street to the south, and Washington Street to the west.
