NY YIMBY has gotten its hands on some new Riverside Center renderings. The first shows 1 West End Avenue, which will controversially include a "poor door"—ahem—"first class entrance experience" in its affordable housing segment. That segment, known as 10 Freedom Place, will have 118 units, limited to the eight-story stone base, while a 41-story glass tower with 247 market rate units will rise above it and feature such exclusive amenities as a 12,000-square-foot roof deck with a pool. Architect Christian de Portzamparc was responsible for the initial design, which, somehow, does not seem to have been value engineered into oblivion.
21 West End Avenue (aka 5 Riverside Center) does appear to have been so lucky. Construction on that building, developed by the Dermot Company, is underway after a disagreement with a neighboring construction site was cleared up, and will eventually rise to 43 stories, with a whopping 616 rental units.
↑ Here's the newest version of the 21 West End Avenue rendering, via 6sqft. All renderings are by Goldstein Hill & West.
↑ Here's the lobby and a piece of the facade of Building 3, which will be 36 stories with 290 residential units.
↑ Building 1 will be comprised of two towers over a shared podium, totaling 641 rental and condominium unit with an elementary school and retail. It's one of the more interesting designs in the complex.
↑ Building 4 will be 34 stories tall and contain 247 residential units. It's the most Portzamparc-y of all the towers.
