Rendering of Gansevoort Peninsula via Field Operations Rendering of Gansevoort Peninsula via Field Operations
In the world of New York real estate, must-have amenities go in and out of fashion. However, easy access to serene outdoor space has always been priceless in this concrete jungle. It has especially been appreciated at a time when many social activities are on hold until a coronavirus vaccine becomes widely available.

Real estate on New York's most famous parks is at a premium. However, a number of new outdoor spaces are opening to the public or currently under construction. The following listings are priced under $2 million, but could very well rise in value in years to come - as apartments near Central Park demonstrate, living near a park has proven a solid investment.

Design by Hargreaves Jones
Completion estimated for 2022

Bushwick-Inlet-Park-01 Rendering via Abel Bainnson Butz
Green space was a key component of the Greenpoint-Williamsburg rezoning of 2005, but for years it seemed residential development would take precedence. However, after the city bought a parcel of land from Modiva Enterprises in 2014, work on the park kicked into gear. Most recently, the Parks and Waterfront Committee of Brooklyn’s Community Board 1 approved plans for a passive park with a small beach, a kayak inlet, wet marshes, and native plantings. Upon completion, this site and 50 Kent Avenue (which is currently home to a pop-up park) will create continuous public green space from the Bushwick Inlet to Marsha P. Johnson State Park.

In May 2020, the Landmarks Preservation Commission ("Landmarks") approved plans to used a fenced-in lot under the Brooklyn Bridge to connect the Brooklyn Heights and DUMBO sections of Brooklyn Bridge Park. This would have the effect of expanding the park, improving waterfront views, and allowing for greater flow and reduced sidewalk congestion. The expansion was originally proposed with "a grand civic space" in mind; the seasonal markets and festivals may be on hold for now, but it will make social distancing easier.

When the Waterline Square development was in planning stages, it was well known that the three towers would be surrounded by public green space that would unify the buildings. Months after the residential buildings opened for occupancy, the park opened to the public. Residents of the buildings and local community alike have eagerly welcomed the lush landscaping, walking paths, water features, children's playground, socially distant programs, and river views.

In the late 1990's, Solow Realty & Development purchased the former home of a Con Edison steam and electricity plant for $630 million. In the years that followed, the developer demolished the plant, embarked on an environmental cleanup, started construction on One United Nations Park (see below), and planned a new public park. The open space will include a sunlit riverfront playground, a public pavilion, and cafe. Additionally, as part of the approval process, Mr. Solow also agreed to provide $10 million for a public pedestrian bridge over the Franklin D. Roosevelt Drive, enabling residents and visitors to get from his property to a proposed waterfront park.

The northern end of Central Park has not historically had the glamour of the rest of "New York's backyard," but that is set to change starting next spring: In fall 2019, Central Park Conservancy announced a $150 million renovation that would improve the parkland, add a new boardwalk along the man-made lake known as Harlem Meer, restore the path beside the watercourse, and build a new recreation facility to replace the Lasker pool and skating rink, both of which date back to the 1960’s. The project is targeting LEED Gold certification.
