A joint venture between Related Companies and Atria Senior Living (the “Related|Atria JV”), in conjunction with Spitzer Enterprises and Welltower Inc. (NYSE: WELL), today closed on a strategic partnership at 451 10th Avenue at Hudson Yards. The Hudson Yards development will be the second location for the joint venture’s new series of upscale urban senior living communities and the first on the East Coast. The Related|Atria JV was formed in 2018 to develop, own and operate modern urban communities catering to seniors living in major metropolitan areas.

Development of the project began in late 2019 with plans of completion in 2022. Situated in New York’s new Hudson Yards neighborhood, 451 10th Avenue will grant seniors unrivaled access to the city’s new heart of culture, fashion, commerce and cuisine with convenient connectivity to public transportation.

Welltower is the long-term strategic capital partner for the Related|Atria JV in connection with both the 451 10th Avenue project as well as the previously announced 1001 Van Ness project in San Francisco, providing unparalleled access to capital, innovative data analytics and market assessment capabilities. The Hudson Yards project represents Welltower’s third purpose built senior living community in Manhattan.

Atria, a leading provider of high-quality senior living, will manage the community and currently provides senior living services to more than 4,000 New Yorkers across its 27 communities in the state.
