New Construction | Lincoln Square | Upper West Side

First came the Lincoln Towers complex built in the 1960's along with the development of Lincoln Center. The eight Lincoln Towers buildings are situated on a 20 acre campus in the middle of Manhattan's Upper West Side between West 66th and West 70th Streets conveniently located near Lincoln Center, Central Park and Riverside Park. The apartments facing west had spectacular Hudson river views.

Then came Riverside Boulevard the new west side neighborhood that extends along the Hudson River from West 59th Street to West 72nd Street on 92 waterfront acres, formerly occupied by the Pennsylvania Rail Road yards. Donald Trump bought the property back in the 1970's. The buildings range from 30 to 40 stories, and the waterfront park covers 23 acres. The first building was completed in 1998. Now the buildings along Riverside Boulevard feature spectacular Hudson River views.

The latest building 50 Riverside Boulevard is currently selling and 40 Riverside Boulevard, under construction  is to have 33 stories. There has been some controversy over the separate entrance slated for the 59 units designated "affordable" for low income households from the projects 219 apartments. The last building will be the five-tower complex designed by Christian de Portzamparc for the super block between 59th and 61st Streets. 

Now coming to the East of Lincoln Towers rising on Amsterdam Avenue at 170 Amsterdam Avenue between West 67th and West 68th Streets is an unusual looking building. It will have 20 floors with 239 units. Currently it has not been announced if the apartments will be rental or condo units.

The unusual architecture, a cross-hatched tower from Handel Architects is because the building's massing and design are driven by the site’s long, narrow shape. The solution moved the building’s structure to the exterior in the form of an exoskeleton, freeing up space on the interior previously occupied by columns.

Riverside Boulevard - Manhattan's New West Coast

Riverside Boulevard is perhaps the most exciting new community in Manhattan. The new west coast extends along the Hudson River from West 59th Street to West 72nd Street on 92 waterfront acres, formerly occupied by the Pennsylvania Rail Road yards.

Donald Trump bought the property back in the 1970's. The buildings range from 30 to 40 stories, and the waterfront park covers 23 acres. Design standards imposed variations among the towers, and the street plan respects the existing West Side grid. The first building was completed in 1998.

The four Trump Place condominium buildings (120, 200, 220 & 240 Riverside Boulevard) front the Hudson River along the northern most boundary adjoining Riverside Park. Trump also built rental buildings located at 140, 160, and 180 Riverside Boulevard.

Trump Place was one of New York City’s first projects to offer a unique mix of richly diverse luxury amenities such as English billiard rooms, European spas, tranquil libraries & reading rooms, screening rooms, and sky terraces offering spectacular views.

With the 25-acre Riverside Park South offering waterfront bike paths, picnic and sporting areas, and an enormous public recreation pier, Trump Place completes the all inclusive lifestyle like no other neighborhood in New York. In 2000, seven acres of land stretching from 68th to 72nd Streets was added to Riverside Park, called Riverside Park South.

In 2005 The Carlyle Group and Extell Development Company purchased a large tract of land and three apartment buildings from investors and Donald Trump for $1.76 billion. The transaction included a tract of land, which is bounded by 59th and 65th Streets and West End Avenue and Riverside Boulevard, and three existing apartment buildings.

Extell developed The Avery, The Rushmore and The Aldyn. The Avery was completed in 2008 and The Rushmore in 2009. The Avery is sold out and only a few sponsor units are available at The Rushmore. However, there are currently resales available at both buildings. The Aldyn, now selling.
The buildings will be joined by several additional residential developments (Riverside Center) taking shape in the next few years.

The Avery, a 32-story building with 274 one-to-three bedroom residences, has views of the Hudson River and Riverside Park between 64th and 65th streets. Avery features a state-of-the-art fitness center that overlooks a large children's playroom, a gaming room, Abigail Michaels concierge service, an onsite parking garage and an unprecedented partnership with Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

The Rushmore's 16-story base gives rise to two soaring towers standing 43 stories tall. The Rushmore will offer its 289 residences world-class amenities, including La Palestra Fitness and Wellness Center, indoor lap pool, screening theater, private sundeck and an exclusive partnership with Kidville, NY.

The Aldyn, a new luxury residential 40 story building has rental apartments on the second through tenth floors and condominium apartments from the 11th floor through the 40th floor. The Aldyn Residences, Athletic Club and Spa includes 40,000 square feet of amenities overlooking the Hudson River.

Riverside Park South, designed by landscape architect Thomas Balsley, spans from 62nd to 72nd street connecting Riverside Park with Hudson River Park. 

The park offers a balance of recreational opportunities and amenities that reflect the culture of the Upper West Side, including an amphitheater, athletic facilities, community gardens, sunning lawns, café terraces and public art. Other aspects include a boardwalk that spans four city blocks, a bicycle path stretching from The Cloisters to the tip of Manhattan and Pier I stretching 750-feet into the Hudson.
