A First Look At Silverstein's Glassy Twin Towers For Midtown

New, 25 comments

Creative agency VisualHouse has let slip some new renderings for the pair of towers that are set to rise at 514 Eleventh Avenue, courtesy of developer Silverstein Properties. The lot, currently a Mercedes dealership, is situated between just north of the rising Hudson Yards megaproject. NY YIMBY's Nikolai Fedak, who first spotted the posted renderings, says Silverstein's twin 60-plus-story towers will bring many much-needed residences to the area. In addition to the approximately 1,000 apartments—the development is slated to bring more than 180,000 leasable square feet of commercial space (warning: PDF!) to this largely pedestrian-unfriendly pocket of the far West Side that has long been commandeered by access roads for the Lincoln Tunnel.

The towers of 514 Eleventh Avenue will join Silverstein Properties' existing West Side developments: Silver Towers at 600 West 42nd Street, and its 41-story tower at One River Place. Nearby, Moinian's 605 West 42nd Street and Extell's 52-story 547 Tenth Avenue—both rentals—are also in the works. Yup, more residential byproducts of Hudson Yards.

The site does not yet have a verified architect, although YIMBY believes that because Silverstein used Costas Kondylis for both the Silver Towers and One River Place, he would be a logical guess. No word yet on condos versus rentals, and the completion date for the project has not yet been announced. Any intel? Send it along to the tipline.
