After being stalled for basically forever, the Riverside Center megaproject is picking up steam. Two of the five towers are under construction, sales launched in the condo building, renderings were revealed for the latest addition, and now plans have been filed with the Department of Buildings (h/t the Real Deal and New York YIMBY) for another, which means construction will likely start soon. This tower will be located at 633 West 59th Street, and it will hold 244 apartments over 34 stories. Extell is developing it along with the Carlyle Group, and Goldstein, Hill & West is the architecture firm of record.
The address is mid-block, so the building is likely Building 4 on the site plan above. It will have a pool among the residential amenities, and there will be 2,110 square feet for a community facility.
Building 1 is the two-tower structure by KPF that was recently revealed, and 21 West End Avenue, a 43-story rental tower, is Building 2. Building 5 is 1 West End Avenue, the condo building with a controversial "poor door," and Building 3 is 10 Riverside Boulevard, which will rise 36 stories and have 288 apartments. The only building that does not have plans on file with the DOB is Building 1. The complex will hold a total of 2,500 apartments, 140,000 square feet of retail, a 750-seat elementary school, a 250-room hotel, 1,500 underground parking spaces, and 3.2 acres of public open space.
