Sky, 605 West 42nd Street, boasts an impressive 1,175 units in a 60-story luxury rental tower. The approach to this building by foot or by car is through a cobbled entry court featuring a fountain holding a sculpture by artist Yayoi Kusama. The entry canopy is illuminated with an array of Hollywood bulbs that enhance the feeling of arriving at the foot of a red carpet. The soaring form of the tower is an exclamation point at the west end of 42nd street.

The glass skin was designed to seamlessly marry exterior and interior, allowing for floor to ceiling glass in residential units and spectacular city and river views throughout. While the building is a single volume, the form is articulated as two slender rectangles slipped past each other, giving a verticality and slenderness that belies the nearly 1,000,000 square feet contained within. Each face of the tower is differentiated by subtle shifts of glass color and metal trim.

At night, the building’s edges glow with thin bands of white light that culminate in the illuminated crown and the night sky. Many units on the western side have balconies with all glass railing panels that allow unobstructed view of the river and surrounding city.

The building’s extraordinary amenity package includes NY City’s first Lifetime Athletic; a health and wellness club that is open to public membership and has a separate entry. It houses a full sized basketball court, Turkish bath, two outdoor pools, an indoor pool, and over 16,000 square feet of outdoor wellness space.

LANA Hotel and Residences at 515 9th Avenue is 12-story mixed use, hospitality, and residential building that contains 108 residential units and a 90-key hotel. Hill West created this unique building with a shared fitness facility and separate residential amenities that include rooftop terraces.

The concept behind LANA was to create an intimate hotel with edgy amenities and to pair it with a boutique residence. The white paneled exterior with playful fenestration patterns has numerous terrace spaces that evoke a sense of Miami in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen.

At the Silver Towers, the 58-story pair of towers include 1,252 rental units located at the bustling intersection of West 42nd Street and 11th Avenue in the heart of Midtown Manhattan with close proximity to Hudson Yards.

The buildings contain over one million square feet. The site plan was carefully considered to maximize views, sunlight and elegance.

The two slender towers that result are connected by a low-rise ring surround courtyard that serves as a private entry to the buildings.
