Construction has wrapped up at 606 West 57th Street, aka The Max, and the massive mixed-use rental complex is already making quite a dent in the Midtown Manhattan rental market. While leasing started just seven months about, over 80% of the 1,028 units are already occupied. TF Cornerstone is responsible for the development.
The Max is one of the largest residential project to change the undeveloped edges around 57th Street along the Hudson River, though it’s certainly not alone. Across the street, VIA 57 West has become an iconic structure, and is so far BIG’s most successful design in New York. Another couple blocks up, Waterline Square is creating three towers centered on a public courtyard with restaurants and retail that aims to become a social gathering point for the surrounding area.
The building is packed with amenities fit for an actual village. These include a game room, a club, and even a basketball court. A full-scale screening room will be available, as will outdoor terraces with barbeque grills and a sundeck. The rooftop views will have largely unobstructed views of the city.
Other amenities include a yoga studio, volleyball court, laundry rom, sizable fitness center, dog grooming room, and a co-working space.
Arquitectonica is responsible for the design, with SLCE Architects serving as the architect of record.
