Construction Update: 611 W 56

Superstructure is close to topping out at 611 W 56, a 450 foot tall residential condo tower in Hell’s Kitchen from developers Sumaida + Khurana and LENY. Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza, the 37-story tower is the architect’s first building in the United States. The facade will be clad with large windows, already going up on the lower half of the tower, and white Perla Bianca limestone.
