Curtain wall installation has begun at 611 West 56th Street, aka 823 Eleventh Avenue, a 37-story condominium building in Hell’s Kitchen. Located near the Hudson River at the northwestern corner of West 56th Street and Eleventh Avenue, the 450-foot-tall project is designed by Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza and is being developed by Sumaida + Khurana and LENY, with SLCE as the architect of record. Gabellini Sheppard Associates is in charge of interior designs for the 80 units.
New renderings have been released for the upcoming 37-story condominium tower 611 West 56th Street, aka 823 Eleventh Avenue. The first project in the United States for Portuguese architect Alvaro Size, the white limestone-clad structure will rise 440 feet tall and contain 80 units. The rectangular site is located at the corner of West 56th Street and Eleventh Avenue and is being developed by Sumaida + Khurana and LENY.
Financial support has been acquired for the construction of a new Midtown development, putting verticality one step closer to reality. 611 West 56th Street will rise 35 floors above the far end of Midtown’s Billionaire’s Row. Just a block away from West 57th Street, the project is another step in the redevelopment of the long-forlorn area. It will join new buildings like Via at 625 West 57th Street, the rising towers of Waterline Square, and The Max, a nearly complete mega-development on the same block. Sumaida + Khurana and LENY are responsible for the development.
As the 57th Street boom’s western bookend at 606 West 57th Street nears completion, another new tower around the corner is getting ready to break ground. Demolition has yet to begin on the site’s existing occupant, but Curbed featured the first full rendering for the project, which is being designed by Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza. Dubbed 823 Eleventh Avenue, it will rise 35 floors and 440 feet to its rooftop, with 80 condominiums within. Sumaida+Khurana is the site’s developer, having acquired the existing building at 611 West 56th Street for $55 million last year, and completion is expected by 2019.
