New Yorkers mourned the famed Roseland Ballroom when it was demolished last year to make way for condos, but now they can glimpse the future of the site with new renderings of the 426-unit tower to rise in Midtown.

Algin Management is developing the building at 242 West 53rd Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues. While previous reports and the architecture firm CetraRuddy’s website place the building at 59 stories, unapproved permits filed with the Department of Buildings call for 62 stories, according to Curbed, with some of the upper floor units being duplexes.

The permits also lay out plans for a 45-car parking garage, ground-floor retail, two swimming pools, An Outdoor Terrace and a golf simulator.
