This handsome, 10-story rental apartment building at 600 West 58th Street in the Clinton section of Manhattan is distinguished by its zinc façade and its indented community facility of the Hospital for Special Surgery on the glass-enclosed lower floors under its six floors of apartments.

The building has 65 apartments.

It was developed by The Durst Organization, which built the rest of the block with the Helena 57 West apartment building just to the south and the very dramatic Via 57 West apartment building designed by Bjarke Ingels just to the west. 

The Helena is named after Helena Durst, the daughter of Douglas Durst, the head of The Durst Organization.

This building, which was designed by Studio V Architecture, is known as Frank 57 West and is named after Frank Durst, Helena’s son.

This block, which is between 57th and 58th Street on the east side of 11th Avenue, is just south of the very large and handsome power plant designed by McKim Mead & White that is just south of the Waterline Square complex at the south end of the Riverside South complex. Via 57 West has an 8-screen Cineplex and Ousia, a Greek restaurant.

Bottom Line

A dark, bold and boxy, zinc-clad, residential section “floats” and cantilevers a bit over a glass community facility on this Durst Organization “super-block” famed for Bjarke Ingall’s geometrically intriguing and spectacular Via 57 West next door.

Description

There is a broad, through-block passageway between this building and Via 57 West.

The residential top of the building is cantilevered slightly after the community facility and its windows are slightly indented and it has corner windows.

Amenities

The smoke-free building has a roof deck, a fitness center, a garage, bicycle storage, a shuttle service to Columbus Circle, 

Apartments

Apartments have floor-to-ceiling windows with Solar Eco-Veil shades, rounded concrete columns, Bosch washers and dryers, Blomberg dishwashers and refrigerators and central air.
