Architecture firm CetraRuddy released new renderings for its futuristic midtown project 242 West 53rd Street, developed by Algin Management. The building will be 59 stories, with 426 units and ground floor retail. Located on a through-block lot from 52nd to 53rd street, between Broadway and 8th Avenues, CetraRuddy designed the building “as a contextual sculpture surrounded by space, creating apartments that captured the views on all sides.”
The new renderings show a sleek building fit for a forward-looking Theater District. Indeed, the August Wilson Theater is adjacent to the building’s south side.
On the exterior, huge windows and a curved footprint separate the building from its neighbors. It appears that most units will have balcony access with generous square footage. Multiple wrap-around levels of green space suggest the building will have a walkable community feel.
Renderings also show a luxurious triple-height pool, multiple lounge areas and a modern fitness center.
