Pelli Clarke Pelli and Goldstein, Hill & West's sparkling two-part skyscraper One West End is one step closer to completion. The second, shorter wing of the complex has topped out at 26-stories and nearly 300-feet tall. Jutting fifty feet beyond a stone podium base and seventy feet above West End Avenue, the tower is some 200-feet shorter than its adjacent wing. Both are being covered with a reflective glass and stainless steel skin, affording residents panoramic views and for passersby, a shimmering icon. The first wing of the project topped out in February at 41 stories and 491 feet high. Goldstein, Hill & West (GHWA) are the architects of record. The tower and its developers Elad Group and Silverstein Properties, are part of a master plan known as Riverside Center, spearheaded by Extell Development.
The second of two towers comprising One West End Avenue has recently topped out.
Below the glass towers sits a 70-foot high Indiana Limestone-covered base. At street level, the base will contain much needed culinary venues, and the 2nd through 5th floors will host commercial space. The first level of the tower, which cantilevers above the street, is the amenity floor and will include a stunning 75-foot floating lap pool. When finished in 2017, the towers will be home to 116 affordable units, and 246 market-rate condo units listed between $1.5 million and $20 million. There are currently 20 apartments for sale in the building, ranging from a $1.632 million one-bedroom on the 17th floor to an $8 million 4-bedroom on the 40th floor.
The residences are designed by Jeffrey Beers International, and will feature a palette of rich material. Kitchens will offer marble slap countertops and backsplashes with waterfall edges; fully-integrated refrigerators, freezers, and wine coolers by Sub-Zero; wall ovens, gas cooktops with stainless steel hoods, and drawer microwaves by Wolf; and dishwashers by Miele. Buyers will have a choice between a dark- or light-stained walnut finish package for the kitchen. Master baths will include custom walnut vanities by Scavolini with marble countertops, marble flooring, brushed limestone walls, recessed medicine cabinets with discreetly integrated lighting, Dornbracht fixtures in polished chrome finishes, water closets by Toto, and radiant heated floors. All residences will include laundry closets with a Asko or LG washer/dryer, a year-round zoned temperature control, custom walnut entrance doors, and either white oak or walnut 7½-foot wide-plank flooring.
