Back in 2015 architects and design buffs were excited to hear that Portuguese Pritzker Prize-winner Álvaro Siza would be designing his highly-anticipated first U.S. building on Manhattan’s west side in a neighborhood being called Hudson West. Now, CityRealty reports that developers Sumaida + Khurana and LENY have released renderings of the building at 611 West 56th Street on the former site of the Gristedes corporate headquarters. The development team has secured an acquisition loan, and demolition and foundation work have begun on the 35-story, 80-unit condo.

Sales of the one-bedrooms through penthouses, many with private terraces, are expected to begin in fall of 2018. Building amenities will include a landscaped roof deck, state-of-the-art fitness center, children’s playroom, and entertainment space.
