611 West 56th Street is the first building in the United States designed by Pritzker Prize-winning master architect Álvaro Siza, with exquisitely crafted interiors by Gabellini Sheppard. Created by the development firms Sumaida + Khurana and LENY, the building is a groundbreaking structure not just for its neighborhood, at the intersection of Midtown and the Upper West Side, but for all of New York City.
The residences at 611 West 56th Street include a range of elegant one- to four-bedroom spaces at an appropriate scale for living, including larger duplex “maisonettes,” full-floor homes, and a grand penthouse. Though a 37-story tower, reaching more than 450 feet into the air, its 80 luxury condominium residences will feel private, with only two homes per floor throughout the majority of this Siza-designed building. A particularly special feature of the majority of these homes overlooking the hudson river is that the elevator will open directly into the residence, with the entry vestibule encased in exquisite millwork. Quality and craftsmanship are essential in all of the residences.
611 West 56th Street’s exclusive amenities suite will include an outdoor garden mezzanine; a state-of-the-art fitness center; men’s and women’s changing rooms with steam rooms; a yoga studio and a boxing gym; a media room with billiards table; a children’s playroom; and a large entertaining lounge with separate dining room, kitchen, and discreet catering kitchen. Parking, as well as additional storage units, will also be available on a limited basis.
Nestled at the junction of the Upper West Side and Midtown West, between Riverside Park South and Central Park, now known as Hudson West, Álvaro Siza’s 611 West 56th Street will make for the most refined addition to what has become a certifiable “architect’s row” along the West Side of Manhattan.
