The picture of the Upper West Side's Riverside South planned community is starting to look complete. Working north to south from 64th Street down to 59th Street, megadeveloper Gary Barnett's Extell has already completed the 274-unit Avery (at 100 Riverside Boulevard), and the twin-towered 289-unit Rushmore (80 RSB). Construction is underway on the Aldyn (60 RSB) and now The Real Deal reports that Extell has filed plans for the as-yet-unnamed 40 Riverside Boulevard, designed, like the Rushmore and Aldyn, by Costas Kondylis & Associates. The 33-story tower is slated for a whopping 530 units, a staggering amount considering the Aldyn, at a comparatively measly 279 apartment, is five stories taller than the planned 40 RSB building. Of course, all these Riverside South buildings so far are really all just appetizers for Riverside Center, the five-tower complex designed by Christian de Portzamparc for the superblock between 59th and 61st Streets. Baby steps.
