Thread: Silver Towers - 600 West 42nd Street @ 11th Ave - Rental - by Costas Kondylis

    Default Update on Riverplace

    Can someone give an update on the RPII construction?
    I am moving to NYC this summer and am looking into renting at RPI. I am concerned with the noise from the construction, so any insight would be appreciated.

    Awesome, where'd you find the rendering? I counted over 60 floors and look how it looms over the Atelier.

    WOW! That sure is news to me. Looks great! Much better than a clone of Riverplace I. It looks like it's right on top of RP I too, there go some views.

    I'm impressed.....is this a Costas Kondylis building?

    DOB RECORDS show this to be a "53 Story" Building ...

    This will certainly wipe out any views from the Atelier (even from that building's highest-level units) of the Times Tower / Empire State Building to the SE.

    Seems to be two towers from a single base ...

    RPI is that squatty looking tannish block in the background.

    That was the count for the previous design.

    The website says completion will be in June 2006(!). I wonder if that's a typo and they mean 2007, or it's left over from the original River Place 2 plan. Also, I could not find the architect anywhere. Emporis still has the old, one-tower rendering for the project by Costas.

    Cool

    wow it blows the old 2 river place( ) out of the water ! i'm so happy!

    That's what I thought. This project looks great.

    They appear to be Orion-nesque in size.
    Is Silverstein really serious with this one or is he just throwing this plan out there in the hopes of selling it to another developer?
    Hmmm...I wonder

    Hmm, I'd never seen the new rendering. I live in RPI now, well, and have for 2.5 years. The pit next to the building is almost like a staple -- a nasty, rotting, blue fenced staple. No one knows quite what is happening with RPII (at least from RP mgmt). The last rending I remembered looked a lot like RPI, but a tad slimmer and taller, this one is much better. Either way, they need to build it and build it now, RPI is below 5% vacancy -- not too shabby for a 900+ unit building.

    Anyone hear anything new on RPII recently? I've seen nothing work-wise when I walk by the pit.
