With the opening of the 7 train extension earlier this month, things are finally starting to look up for Manhattan’s far West Side–literally. Hudson Yard’s Coach Tower is nearing its 900-foot apex, and Gary Barnett’s Extell Development has topped off construction on its 610-foot high skyscraper at 555 Tenth Avenue.

Extell’s rental/dormitory project anchors a full block-front between West 40th and 41st streets, and cozies up next to (and above) the neo-gothic Church of Saints Cyril & Methodius and Saint Raphael, from which the savvy developer purchased 140,000 square feet of air rights from in 2012 for $16.5 million. According to previous reports, Barnett obtained the rights to build on the 18,000 square-foot parcel after signing a 99-year ground lease from the estate of Sol Goldman in 2011. The $480 million project is partly financed by means of $100 million from EB5 equity investors.
