VDA provided consulting services for the design through construction of all vertical transportation systems at this 35-story residential building. From preemptive Traffic Studies to installations VDA was present through every stage of the design process. The scope of work included four (4) high-rise elevators in the main entrance, two (2) mid-rise elevators in the Northern Tower and three (3) low-rise elevators in the Southern Tower as well as one (1) amenity elevator, one (1) trash elevator, and one (1) parking elevator. The main four (4) car group is using destination dispatching technology.

VIA 57 WEST is located along the Hudson river and offers residents a compelling mix of 709 rental units, a large selection of amenities, and 45,000 square feet of retail space. The building has 178 unique floorplans and offers studios through five-bedrooms. The vast array of amenities for residents to enjoy include a pool, fitness center, half-basketball court, golf simulator, children’s playroom, library, poker room and media room. Residents may also reserve a variety of ‘living rooms’ for entertaining and take advantage of such features as a fireplace, chef’s kitchen, serving kitchen, dining room and an outdoor terrace with dramatic river views. The building will also house a Livanos Restaurant Group retail space.

The centerpiece of VIA 57 WEST’s unique design however is the VIA Garden, a lushly planted courtyard that opens toward the Hudson River, bringing in sunshine and beautiful views.
