Is This 59-Story Tower Replacing The Roseland Ballroom?

New, 26 comments

In November, it was revealed that the site of the now-closed Roseland Ballroom will be replaced by 50-something tower designed by the architecture firm Cetra/Ruddy. Well, BuzzBuzzHome did some poking around on the firm's website and found renderings that might be for said tower. Cetra/Ruddy doesn't give an address, but their site says the 59-story tower is located in the Theater District, and it will be 468,300-square-feet large, just a bit bigger than the previously reported 450,000-square-feet. It would have 426 units, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms, with a four-bedroom penthouse. Amenities include a rooftop terrace and an outdoor pool, while a three-story base will host retail. As for the design...well, we know that former Times critic Nicolai Ouroussoff definitely won't like it.
