New York-based developers LENY and Sumaida + Khurana have unveiled a new website and renderings for 611 West 56th Street, a 447-foot, 37-story condo high-rise under construction on the West Side. The project is the first American development in the 65-year career of renowned Portuguese architect Álvaro Leite Siza, a veteran of the modernist movement. Siza teamed up with SLCE, which serves as the architect of record, and Gabellini Sheppard Associates, responsible for interior design, to produce a crisp, elegant condominium that joins a rapidly-growing residential enclave in Midtown West.

The architectural career of 86-year-old Álvaro Siza began in the early 1950s, when high modernism, a style noted for expressive, minimal forms, emerged onto the global mainstream. Siza’s austere, sculptural designs, esteemed as some of the finest examples of the movement, earned the architect a Pritzker Prize in 1992. The serene yet assertive West Side condo evokes his signature aesthetic by balancing solidity and transparency.

At the exterior, off-white Perla Bianca limestone, arranged in a subtle patchwork pattern, frames tall, broad windows that open onto sweeping, unobstructed of the skyline and the Hudson River. The tower’s slender dimensions, which measure just 105 by 41 feet, allow for ample sunlight and penthouse-style living in each of its 83 apartments, most of which span from half to full floor. Half of the units feature keyed access directly from the elevators.

 

The development will feature resident amenities such as a gym with boxing and yoga facilities, a children’s playroom, a kitchen-equipped dining room, a media lounge, and a library. The garden on the fourth floor features landscape design by architect M. Paul Friedberg and a centerpiece sculpture by Siza himself.

The crown makes an elegant skyline statement and fits with the crisp geometries of the stacked, cantilevered blocks at the 42-story Max next door, the sail-like sweep of Bjarke Ingels’ VIA 57 WEST a block north, and the curved and angle forms of the towers at One, Two, and Three Waterline Square three blocks north, which frame a brand new park that faces the Hudson River. These and other recently built apartment buildings along 11th Avenue, such as Helena 57 West, One West End, and 21 West End Avenue, form a growing residential enclave at the junction of Billionaires’ Row on 57th Street, Hell’s Kitchen to the south, and the Upper West Side’s Lincoln Square to the north.

 

The location is at once removed from the frenetic bustle of Midtown and proximate to shopping at Columbus Circle, the cultural venues of Lincoln Center, and the all-season pleasures of Central Park. Other nearby green space consists of the Hudson River Greenway a block west and the DeWitt Clinton Park two short blocks south.

 

At the moment, 611 West 56th Street stands around 30 stories tall, likely to top out before the end of the year and open in 2020. Sales are expected to launch later this month with one-bedroom units beginning at $1.26 million.
