Renovation work is progressing at The Hive, a two-building complex along Eighth Avenue between West 42nd Street and West 43rd Street in Midtown. Hive 42, the taller structure, occupies an L-shaped plot at 303 West 42nd Street and stands 13 stories tall. Directly to the north is Hive 43, a six-story industrial building at 300 West 43rd Street. Both have been in the process of being transformed into a new mixed-use development with offices and ground-floor retail space. The project is being designed by Gertler & Wente Architects, developed by KRW Realty Advisors, and managed by Hive Management LLC.

At the beginning of this year, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a major redevelopment initiative for the area surrounding New York City’s Pennsylvania Station. Referred to as the “Empire State Complex,” the project team is now completing a final scope of work, which will take into consideration the many comments received from community activists, experts, and officials since a scoping meeting on July 20, 2020.
The finishing touches are wrapping up on the Verizon Tech Executive Education Center and the adjoining Graduate Hotel at 22 North Loop Road on Roosevelt Island. Designed by Snøhetta, the 18-story hotel is managed by Graduate Hotels and will contain 224 rooms, while the four-story education center will feature a number of spaces for academic conferences, executive programs, seminars, and workshops. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill is the master planner and Hudson Companies, Related Companies, and Brookfield are developing the entire Cornell Tech campus, which sits just south of the Queensboro Bridge’s central span.
