Developers Sumaida + Khurana and LENY have unveiled the first rendering of their newest project, a luxe Hell’s Kitchen condo designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza.

The building, at 611 West 56th Street on the corner of 11th Avenue, will be the first foray into the U.S. market for Siza, who is best known for designing structures such as the Boa Nova Tea House and Piscinas de Marés in Portugal.

SLCE Architects will serve as the Architect of Record.

The 172,000-square-foot, 34-story project will comprise 80 units, including one- to four-bedroom units and a handful of penthouses. Amenities will include a landscaped roof garden, a private swimming pool, a spa, a fitness center, a children’s play area, a screening room and entertainment spaces.

“The tower is expressed through a vertical grid of elegant proportions and depth that rises gracefully amongst neighboring glass towers,” said Amit Khurana, founding partner of Sumaida + Khurana.

Michael Gabellini and Kimberly Sheppard of Gabellini Sheppard Associates will collaborate with Siza on the interiors.

Construction is slated to start this summer and be completed by 2019.

Sumaida + Khurana and LENY nabbed part of the site last year from grocery mogul and one-time mayoral hopeful John Catsimatidis for $55 million.
