The building’s remarkable shape required 178 unique floorplans to make the most optimal use of the space and, as expected for such a high-profile project, the rents aren’t for the faint-hearted. The 709 units are a mix of sizes, with studios starting at $3,000 per month, and large four-bedroom apartments running a jaw-dropping $16,500. Out of the 709 apartments, 142 will be affordable units that will start at $565 for a studio. These will be awarded based on a lottery system that opened in October 2015.
The building was constructed with sustainability in mind, and utilizes various energy-efficient features, water conservation methods, and indoor air quality and lighting systems installed throughout the complex. As far as amenities, VIA 57WEST offers a 22,000 square-foot open courtyard, filled with lush green space and planted with almost 50 plant species native to New York. Residents will also be able to enjoy a large swimming pool, sun decks, barbecue grills, a basketball court, a poker room, a children’s play area, a gym, a golf simulator, a library and a private event area.
