Latest Riverside South tower to be glassiest

Date: 29 July 2011
One of the last of over a dozen residential towers to be built at Riverside South on the far West Side of Manhattan will be considerably glassier than its neighbors, according to the project's designers at Goldstein Hill & West Architects.

The tower is part of a new residential cluster originally proposed almost a decade ago to rise at the former Pennsylvania rail yards between West 59th and West 72nd streets along the West Side Highway.

The 650,000-square-foot residential tower at 40 Riverside Blvd. will be 33-stories high and boast more glass than any of the other new buildings north of it, Stephen Hill, a partner at Goldstein Hill & West Architects, recently told Crain's. Mr. Hill has been involved in developing Riverside South since 1995, first under his former employer Costas Kondyllis & Partners and now under his own firm Goldstein Hill & West. To date, he has worked on 10 of the projects, most recently, helping developer Extell Development design residential towers The Rushmore, Aldyn and Ashley.
