Mixed-use tower adds residential and active public space to vibrant urban realm 


In an emerging residential area at the edge of Manhattan's bustling Chelsea neighbourhood, Perkins Eastman's new 620,000 sq ft tower creates a vibrant destination with its mixed-use program. Rising out of a landscaped urban plaza, the 53-story building comprises 32 floors of luxury rental apartments, a 290-key hotel with banquet facilities and meeting rooms, restaurants and entertainment space, and additional amenities, including a spa.

An elegant contribution to the New York City skyline, 835 Sixth Avenue features architectural and structural innovations that belie its slender profile. As the tallest building in the neighbourhood, 835 Sixth Avenue was designed to take advantage of views of the Hudson River to the west and the East River to the east. With separate entrances, the building's design allows residents, hotel guests, and visitors alike to utilise all of its facilities.

The plaza is open to the public and leads to a lobby entrance, used to access the second-floor restaurant and retail space visible from the street outside, while a lounge and terrace on the 53rd Floor provides sweeping 360-degree views of the entire city. In a location typified by its proximity to Penn Station, 835 Sixth Avenue boldly interprets its rhythms in the distinctive facade, uniquely expressing the building's mix of uses.
