Construction Update: One West End

Southeast corner of the tower.

Construction is wrapping up at One West End, the Elad Group and Silverstein Properties' 42-story tower within the Riverside Center development. Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, the project is composed of an eight-story podium for the retail and 116 affordable rental units and a tower for the 246 residential condo units. The podium features a limestone façade with punched windows and ornamental metal grilles covering the PTAC units. A faceted glass curtain wall with vertical striped frit pattern clads the condo tower.

Amenities for the condo owners include a 12,000 square foot terrace with cabanas, a demonstration kitchen, a communal living room, gaming and children rooms, and a pool at the base of the tower that cantilevers out towards 11th Avenue.
