In the summer of 2015, detail emerged of the planned 34-story, 80-unit condominium building planned at 611 West 56th Street (a.k.a. 823 Eleventh Avenue), in Hell’s Kitchen. Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza is designing the tower, and Wallpaper has the first glimpse of what it will look like. The building will measure over 172,000 square feet and stand 420 feet above street level. Its residential units will come in a variety of configurations, from one-bedrooms to penthouses, and amenities include a landscaped roof garden, a sun deck, swimming pool, spa and fitness center, and entertainment space, among other facilities. Sumaida + Khurana and LENY are the developers, Gabellini Sheppard is designing the interiors, and SLCE Architects is serving as the architect of record. Construction starts this summer, with completion anticipated in 2019. A six-story commercial building must first be demolished.
This past spring, The New York Times revealed full renderings of Sumaida + Khurana’s planned seven-story, seven-unit condominium project at 152-154 Elizabeth Street, in Nolita, the same time crews began demolition work on the existing four-story building. Now the developer has landed a $40 million construction loan. The building will have 26,012 square feet of residential space, and units will average a luxury 3,716 square feet apiece. Tadao Ando is the project’s design architect, while Gabellini Sheppard Associates is the applicant of record, and completion is expected in November 2016.
