Battery Park City Apartments


Battery Park City is a 92-acre planned residential site on the southwestern tip of Manhattan. The largest "green" neighborhood in the world, it boasts 5 million square feet of environmentally sustainable design and construction, with residential buildings such as The Solaire, Riverhouse, and Tribeca Green leading the way in sustainably conscious design. Thirty-six acres of parks and gardens and 20 pieces of public art. Surrounded on three sides by the Hudson River and bound to the east by West Street, the neighborhood is adjacent to the Financial District.

By the late 1950s, Lower Manhattan's port district had become desolate, prompting private firms to propose the idea of a landfill development that would revitalize the shoreline. A master plan was created in the 1960s; and by 1976, infrastructure was completed using landfill collected at the World Trade Center. Building construction commenced in the 1980s and continued through the 90s, with the goal of creating a mixed-use commercial/residential district.

After 9/11, many Battery Park City condo and rental buildings, which are all modern luxury high-rises, offered incentives to new residents in an effort to revive the area. Buildings on the north end, more newly constructed than those on the south, tend to be more expensive. Popular residences include Riverhouse, a 32-story LEED Gold certified condominium that offers amenities like a dog spa and lap pool, and The Visionaire, the first building in New York City certified as LEED Platinum.

The neighborhood is extremely popular among families, most of which work nearby in the Financial District and enjoy the feeling of a suburb within a city, as well as  access to three public schools.

A 1.2-mile Hudson River esplanade runs along Battery Park City and features a yacht marina. Off the esplanade is a pier that has beach volleyball courts, sports fields, and a miniature golf course. Additionally, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, Irish Hunger Memorial and Skyscraper Museum are all situated in the area.

The "main street" of Battery Park City is Goldman Alley, named for Goldman Sachs, which moved its headquarters to a 43-story, $2.1-billion tower on West Street in 2009. Restaurateur Danny Meyer has opened wildly popular restaurants along the Alley -- an outpost of his burger emporium Shake Shack, and the Kansas-style rib house Blue Smoke.

Brookfield Place, formerly known as the World Financial Center, is the backdrop to the marina. Highlights include a curated fashion collection, the Hudson Eats food hall, and Le District, a 25,000-square-foot French marketplace.
