Soho-based architecture firm Cetra/Ruddy is designing a 59-story mixed-use Midtown West tower with 426 luxury apartments believed to be replacing the outgoing Roseland Ballroom, according to a report on the blog BuzzBuzzHome.
The 468,300-square-foot building will hold units ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. The exception is one four-bedroom penthouse unit with views of Central Park. It is unknown whether the units will be rentals or condominiums. There will be a three-story base with retail, resting just below a 30,000-square-foot amenities space over two stories, which includes a pool and rooftop veranda.
Roseland, the historic music venue, is shutting down in March. The building rising at the site, at 239 West 52nd Street, is being developed by Algin Management, as previously reported. [BuzzBuzzHome] — Mark Maurer
