Pritzker Prize-winning master architect Alvaro Siza has just launched the new renderings of 611 West 56th Street, his first building designed in the US.
611 West 56th Street presents a historic architectural moment for New York City, the first building in the United States designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Portuguese master architect Alvaro Siza. The new 37-story stone residential tower, which will offer just 80 exquisite residences, is currently under construction in one of New York’s most exciting enclaves of contemporary architecture.
611 West 56th Street is co-developed by Sumaida + Khurana and LENY, developers at the forefront of modern architecture and design-driven development. Sumaida + Khurana recently completed 152 Elizabeth Street, a boutique Nolita condominium designed by another Pritzker Prize winner, Japanese architect Tadao Ando. LENY has a global portfolio that includes, in New York, Rafael Viñoly’s 277 Fifth Avenue, an upcoming High Line building designed by Workshop/APD and a portfolio of century-old warehouse buildings in Williamsburg that includes the popular North 3rd Market.
Interiors will seamlessly connect to the building’s refined and modern exterior in inventive ways, and are being crafted by Gabellini Sheppard Associates, the award-winning interior design studio behind 152 Elizabeth (with Tadao Ando), Rockefeller Center’s iconic Rainbow Room and Milan’s Armani Center.
A tower with expansive unobstructed views of the nearby Hudson River, south to Hudson Yards and east to the glittering Midtown Manhattan skyline, 611 West 56th Street is designed in the spirit of a boutique collection of custom homes, from one-, two- and three-bedroom residences to expansive penthouses and duplex maisonettes featuring private terraces. The majority of the residences feature direct elevator entry.
Sales at 611 West 56th Street are slated to begin in Fall 2019 led by Compass Development’s Debra LaChance, Leonard Steinberg and Therese Evans.
