550 Tenth Avenue

Client Gotham
Location New York City, New York
Status Under Construction

550 Tenth Avenue will create an urban oasis in a dense part of New York City.

550 Tenth Avenue is Handel Architects’ newest mixed-use residential tower on Manhattan’s West Side. The 47-story tower will feature over 450 residences, including nearly 140 dedicated to moderate / middle-income residents. Also included are 20,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor amenity spaces including a sky deck, and social, leisure, and fitness spaces. Retail will wrap the ground level, and a dedicated entrance has been included for social services provider Covenant House, who will have office space on floors two and three.

The exterior of the tower is defined by rust-red panels that fold outward, giving the facade depth. The articulation of these panels expands as the tower rises, framing single-story spaces at the podium all the way to five-story expanses at the tower top. Cutting through the massing, a ribbon of glass stitches the base and the tower together and points toward the building's exterior decks.

Inside, interiors have been designed to create a feeling of escape from the bustle of New York. Organic forms will define the public space interiors, lending to a feeling of an urban oasis.
