Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"One of the great keys to the success of Battery Park City as the city's most spectacular residential community is its mix of building types. The master plan developed by Cooper Eckstut & Associates established very elaborate design guidelines to achieve a high level of urban design and community cohesiveness but they still left and encouraged considerable leeway for individuality.

The guidelines were informally predicated on many of the city's best older architectural achievements, such as the Brooklyn Heights Esplanade, Gramercy Park and Riverside Drive. While some viewed the guidelines as embracing Post-Modern design and not conducive to more radical and modern designs, the high quality that has resulted has quashed most arguments." Read Carter's Full Review
Pros
  • Convenient to the many restaurants- stores and office buildings of the World Financial Center
  • Central Battery Park City location close to the Esplanade
  • Doorman
  • Close to Subway
Cons
  • Construction will continue at Battery Park City for some time
  • Access to Lower Manhattan is limited to skywalks over West Street
  • No balconies
