Central Park Neighborhood

The Neighborhood

Just east of the Hudson River Park, offering miles of continuous biking and jogging paths alongside the river’s edge, 611 West 56th Street will be situated in a distinctive, fast-changing and engaging neighborhood, offering just 80 perfectly-placed luxury residences. Nestled at the junction of the Upper West Side and Midtown West, between Riverside Park South and Central Park, now known as Hudson West, Álvaro Siza’s 611 West 56th Street will make for the most refined addition to what has become a certifiable “architect’s row” along the West Side of Manhattan. Going north, from Tribeca to West 61st Street, there are now standout buildings by world-class architects such as Herzog & de Meuron, Renzo Piano, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel, Richard Meier, Cesar Pelli, Diller Scofidio, Norman Foster, Bjarke Ingels, and Rafael Viñoly. Many of these structures were built along—and, in part, are a product of — the popular High Line park. This dramatic evolution of the area has, not surprisingly, brought about a gravitational pull to the corridor surrounding 611 West 56th Street. A host of cultural and retail amenities, including The Shed arts center, Thomas Heatherwick’s “Vessel” staircase sculpture, and a Neiman Marcus flagship, are all arriving at the Hudson Yards complex, about 20 blocks south. Art institutions such as Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Opera, the Museum of Arts and Design, Carnegie Hall, and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater are all within short walking distance. An eight-screen movie theater is a block away. The Chelsea Piers sports complex and Chelsea Market are just minutes by car or bike, as are the Beacon Theatre, the Classic Car Club of Manhattan, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, and the Whitney Museum. And even while the tower will be close to all of the action, it will indeed establish a rare place of respite, an oasis separate from the city’s bustle, with an easy in-and-out, via the Lincoln Tunnel or the Henry Hudson Parkway, for a weekend getaway.
