    Marketing starts for the Rushmore at 80 Riverside Boulevard


    19-SEP-06

    Marketing has begun for The Rushmore, the 41-story, twin-towered residential condominium development at 80 Riverside Boulevard that occupies the blockfront between 64th and 63rdth Streets.

    [b]It is across 64th Street from The Avery, a 30-story condominium development and both are projects of the Extell Development Corporation[b/] on land it acquired from Donald Trump, who has developed several residential towers just to the north.

    The Rushmore has been designed by Costas Kondylis and Partners, the architectural firm that has also designed the Avery and many of Mr. Trump’s projects.

    The Rushmore has a 16-story base with corner windows at the north and south and a setback at the 4th floor in the center of the blockfront. The twin towers are setback and are joined at the lower three floors.

    Mr. Kondylis has borrowed a stylistic treatment of the towers from Cesar Pelli’s World Financial Center at Battery Park City where the upper part of the towers have slightly protruding sections with different fenestration patterns.

    Mr. Kondylis has kept his towers symmetrical and the protruding sections stop at the 34th story and the top five floors have a banded fenestration pattern reflecting the fact that are “penthouse” units.

    A recent advertisement for the building showed the floor plan of the full-floor Penthouse A that is priced at $6,525,000 and it indicated that the apartment has an entrance gallery that leads to a very large living and dining room space with a fireplace and also has four bedrooms and a large family room and kitchen area facing the Hudson River.

    The 425-foot-high Rushmore will have 289 one- to five-bedroom apartments priced from $1,000,000 to more than $7,000,000. Completion is planned for 2008.

    The building will have 6 duplex apartments entered on the ground floor. Floors 2 and 3 will have 22 apartments. Floors 4, 5 and 6 will have 18 apartments. Floors 7 through 14 will have 10 apartments. Floors 15 through 17 will have 6 apartments. Floors 18 through 36 in each tower will have 2 apartments. Floors 37 through 41 in each tower will have one apartment.

    The building will have a swimming pool, La Palestrina Fitness and Wellness Services, a 185-car garage, a children’s playroom designed by Kidville, NY, a billiards room, Abigail Michaels concierge, a bicycle room, and a theater and entertainment suite.

    Residents will be offered a choice of three kitchen designs with fixtures by Sub-Zero, Viking, Miele and bathrooms will have fixtures by Kohler and Waterworks.

    Extell certainly doesn't fool around.

    They mean business.

    Add another one to the condo-land that is Riverside.

    A couple of double-tower buildings all in the same area was OK, but isn't this getting really tired now? Repetition ad nauseam.

    Actually, I think it is funny. Twin towers popping up all over manhattan after the destruction of the TT. Hope they keep getting bigger and bigger.

    Not if they look like that! Ugly, boring, bland, banal. I just spent some time
    on the world threads at SSC and coming back to pictures of these joyless NY projects is a downer.

    This is a decent design. Ironically though, it looks like the rental that Silverstein is building on 42nd Street. It doesn't make sense that a tower with multi-million dollar condos will look just like a tower with $3,000/ mo. one bedrooms.

    Here is an observation: You will know sales are good when the buyers hijack this thread and talk about their 421a status, move in dates, lobby carpeting etc...

    am I right?

    See 30 WEA as an example.

    Could be more the demographic, but good point.

    Blame Kondylis' limited vocabulary.

    Is he designing both? They seem to be the same design but Silverstein's is glass and Extell's has a stone facade.

    The Avery is disappointing.
