New renderings of 170 Amsterdam Avenue have appeared on Handel’s website; the firm is the architect of record for the project, which is approaching topping-out. The 20-story and 236-unit building is being developed by Equity Residential.
....

Equity’s latest undertaking is expected to be complete by 2015.

Final touches are being added to the Upper West Side’s exoskeletal rental building at 170 Amsterdam Avenue. The 20-story mid-rise between 67th and 68th Streets will be the first residential building in the city to feature a concrete “diagrid” structural system.

Developed by Chicago-based Equity Residential, the tower will house 239 luxury rental units and is slated to begin leasing early next year. Rental pricing may be similar to the Aire next door, where available units range from $3,375 for a 25th floor studio to $15,000 for a three-bedroom penthouse. According to the New York Post, Equity signed a 99-year lease for the site from the American Properties Group for $76.5 million back in 2011.

I know this is a nothing background building, but I enjoy it. It's brutalism done right.

I don't know if you meant that it is what brutalism should be, or if you meant it is a decent example of brutalism? If it is the latter, I disagree, because this isn't brutalism at all.

Amsterdam Avenue's Exoskeletal Building Is Ready for Renters

Friday, March 20, 2015

Apartments in the exoskeleton-clad 20-story building on Amsterdam Avenue and West 68th Street are now up for grabs. West Side Rag spotted the listings, and rents range from $3,375 for a 519-square-foot studio to $7,700 for a 1,281-square-foot two-bedroom. The bulk of the 239 units are studios and one-bedrooms, and available one-bedrooms currently start at $4,800 and top out at $4,960.

The building's largest units—four three-bedrooms, measuring up to 1,500 square feet—have not yet listed. There are no interior renderings on the listings, and the brokerbabble is short on details, only say that units feature "floor-to-ceiling windows with cityscape views, wood flooring, quartz stone counters and stainless steel appliances." Equity Residential has a slew of floorplans on its website, showing that a couple apartments will have large private terraces or garden access. Building amenities (which are rendered) include a rooftop terrace, garden, fitness room, lounge, and playroom.

Seems like the interiors should reflect and work with the external bracing, rather than just having a flat wall of windows that pretends those braces don't exist. The left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing.

This building is complete. Photo below is from late January, but currently, the tower is finished and ready for renters.
