Renderings of three separate plans for “Building 1” at Extell Development’s Riverside Center residential project have been released.

While construction is well underway at the project’s other buildings – With 21 West End Avenue already topping out and work beginning at 1 West End Avenue – Miami firm Arquitectonica has submitted two different plans for Riverside Center’s Building 1, on the corner of West 61st Street and Riverside Boulevard.

In addition, New York firm Goldstein, Hill & West Architects has created a third concept for the building, according to New York YIMBY. Those plans would include a 38-story tower holding 641 units and totaling over 1 million square feet.

The winning design for Building 1 is not yet known, according to New York YIMBY, with no formal completion date for the Riverside Center’s build-out announced.

Extell Development and the Carlyle Group sold a portion of the five-building, 8-acre project, at 40 Riverside Boulevard, to James Linsley’s GID Development Group for $410.8 million, The Real Deal reported yesterday. [NY YIMBY]Rey Mashayekhi
