    Sales to start soon at 555 West 59th Street


    20-JAN-06

    Brack Capital and Continental Equities have received permits from the city’s Department of Buildings to start foundation work for the Element, a 35-story condominium tower at 555 West 59th Street between West End and Amsterdam Avenues.

    The development will have about 200 apartments.

    The handsome, blue-glass tower will have numerous balconies and an illuminated top and has been designed by SCLE Architects.

    The building will have a concierge and doorman, a garage, a yoga room, a basketball court, three pools and a gym.

    Sales are expected to begin next month.

    Its location is convenient to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Fordham University and the Hudson River.

    It's amazing how dramatically this area is transforming!

    I´m wondering: in a no-mans land like this, is there zoning and building guidlines in place to help turn the area into a real neighborhood with a sense of place? Will there be real street life, will it be a destination?

    The rending is pretty, but what´s happening down at street level?

    Actually where you see that blank wall... there is a structure there that wont be demolished. So that side would not matter... The one that is fronting 59th street seems to have a glass wall for some sort of store or something. But it does not have alot of fronting to the street I believe.

    Here is another rendering...

    The demolition has started for the Element Condominium - view East from West End Avenue. The site adjacent to West End Avenue is Ten West End. 21 January 2005.

    When are they going to start tearing down that hideous, decrepit, eyesore warehouse across the street?

    Also, does this area have good retail services (stores, restaurants, etc.)?

    From the NYPOST Real Estate Section 'COLUMBUS NEW WORLD' (February 25, 2006):

    The 35-story glass-tower building has 198 units, including five townhouse residences, and is more than 50 percent sold.

    Prices at Element go from about $815,000 for a 791-square-foot one-bedroom to $2.7 million for a 1,476-square-foot penthouse.

    Amenities include cold storage for fresh-food deliveries, a wine valet service with Morrell & Co. and a three-lane, 60-foot indoor lap pool with a whirlpool and a children's pool.

    There will also be an indoor half-court basketball area, a racquetball court, a children's playroom created by FAO Schwarz, children's gym classes provided by Jodi's Gym - which holds classes and parties for posh tots around the city - and landscaped outdoor space, including a "great lawn," a meditation garden with yoga classes and an outdoor lounge.
    Wow more than 50% sold units already? That is really good.

    Short walk to Hudson River Park and Clinton Cove: boating, public art exibits, grass lawns, and more.. not bad.
