The architecture firm Snøhetta has released breathtaking renderings of a 127-condo tower to be built on the Upper West Side. The building will become the areas tallest building. We have all the details and images.
The design for a 775-foot tower on West 66th Street (between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue) has been unveiled by Oslo and New York City-based architecture firm Snøhetta.
Construction has already begun on another tower at 200 Amsterdam Avenue, which will be the tallest building on the Upper West Side (669 feet)… until Snøhetta’s 127-condo design is realized. It will then beat out the new building by around 106-feet. You snooze you lose.
The building is being developed by Extell, the firm responsible for One Manhattan Square and Central Park Tower, and plans will be filed with the city soon.
A bronze and limestone street level sleek design will see a synagogue the 65th street entrance.
A beautiful terrace on the sixteenth floor gives way to a slender tower as you can clearly see below:
Just imagine the view from that terrace! In our humble opinion, this residential building will be a beautiful addition to new york city’s iconic skyline. Enjoy that “tallest building on the Upper West Side” while you can 200 Amsterdam Avenue.
