One West End, developed by Elad Group and Silverstein Properties, is the pre-eminent residential tower rising on Manhattan’s West Side at the corner of 59th Street and West End Avenue. The 42-story tower is the first and tallest condominium to come to market within the rising new neighborhood of Riverside Center, whose master plan provides for 3.2 acres of green space and a new k-8 public school. The building has a highly sought after 20-year tax abatement.
With exteriors by world-renowned Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, interiors by hospitality visionary Jeffrey Beers and landscaping by award-winning firm Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, One West End boasts an incredible roster of distinguished leaders.
“One West End is a game changer for the neighborhood and will contribute significantly to the transformation of Manhattan’s West Side,” said Samantha Sax, Executive Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Elad Group. Robert Vecsler, President of Residential Development with Silverstein Properties, adds, “Riverside Center, and specifically One West End, will bring an entirely new resort lifestyle experience to this exciting area of Manhattan.”
UTMOST IN PRIVACY
The Pelli Clarke Pelli-crafted exterior features a distinctive limestone base topped by a glass façade with metal detailing and a cantilevered atrium that extends over West End Avenue. Inside, One West End is comprised of 246 light-filled one- to four-bedroom residences, with two stunning penthouses and two duplex townhomes that offer private outdoor space.
Beers’ intimate knowledge of entertaining and hospitality is a cornerstone of One West End’s resort-inspired amenities offering seamlessly integrated indoor and outdoor spaces including a 12,000-square-foot rooftop terrace featuring cabanas and areas for grilling and outdoor entertaining, an expansive fitness center, a 75-foot swimming pool in a double-height atrium, spa treatment rooms, a media room, a billiards room, a children’s playroom, a game room, a living room with fireplace, and a chef’s kitchen and dining room.
“When designing One West End, it was important to create a welcoming and relaxing environment that is not only resort inspired but also celebrates the kitchen as the heart of the home,” stated Beers, who partnered with Scavolini to create custom-designed high-performance kitchens for the residences. One great kitchen design detail that makes One West End truly unique is the full counter length backsplash ledge ~ very functional and aesthetically pleasing. The kitchen countertop has a custom inset for a cutting board to rest in perfectly right next to the sink. The baking station has a stainless steel work area that rolls out when in use and can be neatly tucked away when not in use, which is a brilliant space saver.
Each residence features a Scavolini kitchen custom designed by Jeffrey Beers, offered in a choice of light or dark palettes, with a plethora of custom touches including recessed storage niches, fully-integrated appliances, and marble slab countertops and backsplashes. Beers brings his experience working with some of the world’s most sought-after chefs, including Daniel Boulud and Todd English to One West End’s superior kitchens which showcase thoughtful details like baking and coffee stations, integrated cutting boards, and oversized islands.
Of particular note are the penthouse and duplex townhome residences at One West End. Sprawling Penthouse A features floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing panoramic views of the New York skyline, Central Park and the Hudson River. A grand corner room with a fireplace leads to a custom eat-in kitchen while the master bedroom suite features two oversized dressing rooms, a morning kitchen, and two ensuite bathrooms. Outside, a large glass-wrapped terrace boasts an equipped outdoor kitchen, spacious areas for dining or seating and a dual-sided fireplace that precedes a tranquil solarium.
