The latest glassy tower to fill out Extell's Riverside South skyline is The Aldyn, which is making its society debut with a Fashion Week-themed show house in several of its apartments. Racked got a tour of the place, and though some building specifics are still draped in secrecy?listings aren't yet online?the Aldyn-branded tote bag contained the price range for the rentals (on floors 2 to 10) and condos (floors 11 to 40, which means the building has grown since permits were first filed). That's not the only big Aldyn reveal.
The full website just launched with renderings galore, and they feature some of the best fake people we've seen in ages (check 'em out in the gallery above). The marketing spiel tries to differentiate the building from the other Riverside South towers by presenting a more resort-like experience. The slogan: Residences · Athletic Club · Spa. And it's a work out, indeed! Our Racked correspondent's review: "Walk west from the subway, keep walking, and then right before you're in the water you'll see The Aldyn." Such is the price to be paid for amazing river views.
Below is the info sheet with the details on the show house apartments. We're guessing the second price for each unit reflects the fully furnished value, just in case a buyer has to have that bedroom set hand-picked by Elie Tahari. Head to Racked for some interior photos, and tell us, Riverside Southies: How does Aldyn stack up?
