Work on 460 Main Street, aka Riverwalk 8, has topped out. One of the newest developments to rise on Roosevelt Island, the project contains the first permanent affordable housing to be built on the island. The 21-story, 340-unit building is designed by Handel Architects and is being developed as a joint venture between The Related Companies and Hudson Companies. Riverwalk 8 is the eighth component in the nine-building Riverwalk rental complex.
YIMBY user Thomas Koloski recently photographed New York City from above, capturing the prodigious swaths of construction transforming the skylines of Lower Manhattan, Midtown, and beyond. Below are a number of major sites that are taking shape, some of which are nearing topping off and set to be completed in 2020.
YIMBY has a preliminary rendering of what could become one of the tallest skyscrapers to rise in Jersey City and all of the state. Applicant Tower Cove Jersey City Urban Renewal is planning to construct a 950-unit mixed-use structure at 444 Washington Street, just steps away from the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway and directly behind the two-building, five-story Avalon Cove housing complex. The image shows the tower standing at the southeastern corner of Washington Street and Thomas Gangemi Drive.
Renderings have been released for a new 78,000-square-foot development in downtown Jersey City that could introduce a mix of residential, commercial, and outdoor space pending approvals from the Division of City Planning. Located at 163-165 Newark Avenue, the proposals include new construction as well as the restoration and reuse of an existing façade. The development also includes annexed components at the corner of Barrow Street and Christopher Columbus Drive.
Permits have been filed for a 13-story mixed-use building at 359 Second Avenue in Gramercy, Manhattan. Located on the corner of East 21st Street and Second Avenue, the lot is about five blocks from the 23rd Street subway station, serviced by the 6 train. Silverback Development is listed as the owner behind the applications.
