Extell Development filed plans this month to construct a 530-unit residential tower at 40 Riverside Boulevard, the greatest number of units in the long-running West Side development known as Riverside South, records with the city Department of Buildings show.

The 33-story tower at 62nd Street is part of the expansive mixed-use Riverside South project, which stretches from 59th to 72nd streets east of the West Side Highway.

The 345-foot tall structure is being designed by architect Costas Kondylis & Partners, according to the DOB application made June 10.

Donald Trump first developed seven buildings on the northern part of the 75-acre Riverside South site, known as Trump Place, and Extell Development completed the Avery and the Rushmore further south. Extell Is Also Building 60 Riverside Boulevard.

The highest number of units today in the series of apartment buildings is the Trump-built 180 Riverside Boulevard, with 516 units, completed in 1998.
