Work is now underway on Pritzker Prize-winning architect Álvaro Siza’s first American project, in Hell’s Kitchen, and with that developers Sumaida+Khurana and LENY have released a new rendering for the 35-story building.
Located at the intersection of West 56th Street and Eleventh Avenue, this residential building will bring 80 new apartments to the neighborhood. Condos here will range in size from one-bedrooms to four-bedrooms, and many of them will feature private outdoor space.
Amenities announced so far include a landscaped roof garden, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, and an entertainment space to host private events.
This project was first announced in January 2016. Siza had been hinting for some time about working in New York, and Sumaida+Khurana and LENY brought the architect on board.
Plans for the project were filed in April last year, and a Gristedes had to be demolished to make way for the condo building. The developers paid the grocery chain’s owner, John Catsimatidis, $55 million to acquire the site at 611 West 56th Street.
The developers have also just acquired a $36 million acquisition loan for the project and are raring to go. Leonard Steinberg and Debra LaChance from Compass have been brought on board for sales, which are expected to launch in the fall of 2018. Construction is scheduled to wrap sometime in 2019.
