Facade rising at 550 Tenth Avenue in New York City

Fa├žade installation begins as 47-story tower continues to rise.

550 Tenth is Handel Architects' 453-unit tower for Gotham on the West Side of Manhattan. The project includes retail space, office space for Covenant House, and ground floor retail. 137 of the residential units are designated as affordable.

As NY YIMBY reports, the bronze-hued facade has begun to rise up the building as a collection of interlocking puzzle pieces, creating a new marker for the area.
