Review by Carter Horsley
Carter Horsley Carter B. Horsley, a former journalist for The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune and The New York Post. Mr. Horsley is also the editorial director of CityRealty.com.
 

The Rushmore is an impressive, 42-story, twin-towered residential condominium development at 80 Riverside Boulevard that occupies the blockfront between 64th and 63rd Streets. 

It is across 64th Street from The Avery, a 30-story condominium development. Both are projects of the Extell Development Corporation on land acquired from Donald Trump, who developed several residential towers just to the north.

The Rushmore was designed by Costas Kondylis and Partners, the architectural firm that also designed the Avery and many of Mr. Trump's projects.

The 425-foot-high Rushmore has 271 one- to five-bedroom apartments.

The building was completed win 2008.

Bottom Line

One of the tallest developments along Riverside Boulevard, this twin-towered building has slender towers with illuminated tops and many amenities.

Description

The Rushmore has a 16-story base with corner windows at the north and south and a setback at the 4th floor in the center of the blockfront. The twin towers are setback and are joined at the lower three floors. 

The tops of the relatively slender towers are illuminated at night.

Mr. Kondylis has borrowed a stylistic treatment of the towers from Cesar Pelli's World Financial Center at Battery Park City where the upper part of the towers have slightly protruding sections with different fenestration patterns.

Mr. Kondylis has kept his towers symmetrical and the protruding sections stop at the 34th story and the top five floors have a banded fenestration pattern reflecting the fact that are "penthouse" units.

Amenities

The building has a swimming pool, La Palestrina Fitness and Wellness Services, a 185-car garage, a children’s playroom designed by Kidville, NY, a billiards room, Abigail Michaels concierge, a bicycle room and a theater and entertainment suite.
