Despite the fact that the massive Riverside Center complex is already on the rise, many of the West Side megaproject's planned buildings are still without formal designs. However, with YIMBY got a hold of some of the submitted designs for "Building 1" at West 61st Street and Riverside Boulevard, including two by Arquitectonica and one by Goldstein, Hill & West Architects.

There are two designs submitted by Arquitectonica—the same firm behind nearby 606 West 57th Street—one is extremely angular, while the other incorporates more curves and slopes. Both, however, heavily feature cantilevers and incorporate many of the design elements present in Christian de Portzamparc's original masterplan (now more or less scrapped), such as two towers rising from a smaller platform.

Meanwhile, YIMBY also links to designs submitted by Goldstein, Hill, & West, which has some more details about the building. The building will reportedly be 492 feet tall, with 641 units spread across 1 million square feet. The complex will also have retail space, an elementary school, and a public area with a water fountain.
