‘our collaborator alvaro siza has designed a building that we hope will be viewed as an elegant and timeless stone monolith, reflective of the quality and purity of design that defines his work,’ says amit khurana, founding partner of sumaida + khurana. construction on ‘611 west 56th street’ is now underway, with sales slated to begin in fall 2018.
