One West EndElad Group and Silverstein Properties combine substantial place-making talents at One West End, the preeminent residential tower rising at the corner of 59th Street and West End Avenue. With sales now officially launched, the 42-story building is the first and tallest condominium project to come to market within Christian de Portzamparc’s masterfully-designed Riverside Center.

“One West End will bring an entirely new resort lifestyle experience to this exciting West Side neighborhood,” said Larry Silverstein, Chairman of Silverstein Properties.

Attached to the luxury tower is another seven-story building with a separate entrance featuring 116 “affordable” rentals. In response to recent media uproar over separate entrances for the affordable component of luxury residential developments — so called “poor doors” –, city officials negotiated with Silverstein to allow residents in the affordable units to have access to the some of the amenities including the courtyard and a roof-top deck.

One West EndOne West End is being designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects with interiors by Jeffrey Beers, and landscaping by Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects.

The high-rise will offer 246 one- to four-bedroom residences, with two penthouses. Amenities include a fitness center with studio space for yoga, Pilates and personal training, a 75-foot swimming pool, spa treatment rooms, a media room, billiard room, children’s playroom, game room, living room with fireplace, chef’s kitchen and dining room. A 12,000-square-foot rooftop terrace will feature cabanas and areas for grilling and outdoor entertaining.

“Offering the best of both worlds, One West End will provide the tranquility of a residential neighborhood with immediate access to Manhattan’s most important business districts, all within the cultural heart of the Upper West Side,” said Samantha Sax, Executive Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Elad Group.

Other conveniences available include a 24-hour concierge with hotel-style services, bicycle storage, cold storage, on-site parking, and storage units available for purchase. The development team also intends to imbue the building with an activated retail base, focused on the provision of everyday and artisanal culinary offerings.

Construction is expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2017, with prices ranging from $1.3 million to over $20 million. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is the exclusive sales and marketing agent for the property.
