Rental Building News and Offers

Little Island via Michael Grimm Photography Little Island via Michael Grimm Photography
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 was especially appreciated when indoor social activities were on hold, but even as more New Yorkers become vaccinated, they show no sign of abandoning city parks and open spaces -- quite the opposite as the weather warms up and the days get longer!

"New York City parks are critical infrastructure and their upkeep is essential for the well-being of our residents” - Deputy Mayor of Operations, Laura Anglin

Gansevoort-Peninsula-01 Rendering of Gansevoort Peninsula via Field Operations
The importance of city parks cannot be overstated, but one might not have known that to look at the numbers: An AMNY editorial from March 2021 noted that New York devotes less than 1 percent of the city budget to parks, and that citywide park conditions are at historic lows. However, that could be about to change. Less than a month after the editorial ran, Mayor de Blasio released his Recovery Budget for fiscal year 2022, which has set aside $234 million to fund a City Clean Up Corps that would hire New Yorkers to make the city “cleaner and greener.”

Additionally, at the beginning of May 2021, New York City allocated $348 million to rehabilitate the Overbuild in Riverside Park. The Overbuild is a series of bridge structures underneath Riverside Park, built over Amtrak lines from West 72nd to 123rd Streets and dating back to the 1930s. The deterioration has affected the park’s usability and created an appearance of disrepair, but NYC Parks and the Department of Transportation have developed a multi-faceted approach to addressing the structural condition. This funding comes in addition to over $300 million invested in the rehabilitation of Riverside Park’s infrastructure, which involves reconstructing the West 79th Street Rotunda complex, reconstructing the West 79th Street Boat Basin, reconstructing pathways and staircases throughout the park, and modernizing the drainage.

“This pandemic has shown us that City parks are critical infrastructure that strengthen the economic and physical health of our residents” - Assembly Member Daniel O’Donnell

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 $5 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.

In 2014, eyebrows were raised when the Hudson River Park Trust and the Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation announced plans for a floating public park in the Hudson River. But what was once a far-fetched idea is now open to the public and hailed as “a charmer with killer city views” by The New York Times. The concrete pylons and design by Heatherwick Studios allow for varying elevations and thus different perspectives.

Little Island features lush landscaping, a playground, a lawn space known as “The Glade, a central plaza with seating, and a 687-seat amphitheater. Tap dancer/choreographer Ayodele Casel, playwright/director Tina Landau, actor/musical director Michael McElroy, and PigPen Theater Co. were named Little Island's first official artists-in-residence, and Perform in the Park brings musicians, dancers, buskers, and other performances to Little Island. Timed entry reservations are required between 12 pm and 8 pm, and may be made here.

In December 2020, Bridge Park II was renamed in honor of the first African-American woman in New York State to receive a license to practice medicine; Susan Smith McKinney lived and practiced in Brooklyn. In addition to reconstructing the play equipment, swings, and spray shower, the project will construct a new adult fitness area and multi-purpose synthetic field with a performance stage, benches, fences, drainage, water supply, and new plantings. It is part of a more than $31 billion investment to improve green space and open access in Brooklyn.

Queensway-03
Following the runaway success of the High Line, planners all over the world have sought to reimagine defunct railways and other abandoned space into parks. Among them were a group of residents living along the former LIRR Rockaway Beach Branch, which has sat desolate since 1962 and redubbed QueensWay. Since forming Friends of the QueensWay in 2011, the group has allied itself with The Trust for Public Land, attracted the attention of elected officials, secured grants, and hired designers to turn the decrepit stretch into a 21st century linear park stretching from Rego Park to Ozone Park.

Supporters say the QueensWay will bring much-appreciated green space to the neighborhoods, create new play spaces, offer a pathway to Vision Zero with safe walking and biking routes, and be beneficial to the environment. The project stalled in 2017, when the MTA commissioned a study of restoring the line to its former use, but its reconstruction was not included in a subsequent five-year capital plan. Mayoral candidate Andrew Yang has put it at the center of his public parks platform.

High Line Extension

High-Line-Extension Renderings via Office of Governor Cuomo
When an elevated walkway stretching the High Line to 34th Street opened in 2014, many considered that to be the final phase for the abandoned rail line turned model of urban ingenuity. However, that may not be the case: In a State of the State address, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced a plan to extend the High Line to the recently opened Moynihan Train Hall as a way of improving access to the train station. The idea is to connect the existing High Line to a pedestrian path at Manhattan West via a 1,200-foot elevated walkway designed by James Corner Field Operations. A timeline is not yet available, but Governor Cuomo has said that one third of funding will be financed by the state, another third by Manhattan West developer Brookfield Properties, and the remainder from non-profit groups and private organizations.

At the end of January 2021, a NYPD tow pound vacated Pier 76 in Hell's Kitchen, thus clearing the way for work to begin on a new section of Hudson River Park. Even car guy Governor Cuomo says, "the tow pound doesn't need a view of the Hudson River," and has proposed an extension of the High Line to connect it to the new green space to come.

As the new Hudson Yards neighborhood took shape, a key part of the plan was a new green center at the heart of the soaring new towers. The plan calls for grassy activity areas, walking paths, and shady nooks for reading and relaxation, not to mention a total of two entrances to the 7 train extension. The first phase, known as Bella Abzug Park, was completed in 2015, and work is underway on the second phase.

In August 2020, Governor Andrew Cuomo dedicated Brooklyn's East River Park to Marsha P. Johnson, an LGBTQ activist who played a significant role in the Stonewall uprising. Following an outcry over rainbow-colored renderings of the revamped park, New York State Parks launched a series of in-person and virtual workshops before presenting a new rendering. The design by Starr Whitehouse Landscape Architects and Planners features a revised plan that incorporates more greenery (almost four basketball courts’ worth, according to Brooklyn Paper), naturalistic elements like log benches, and a series of flower gardens around a circular path in homage to the flower crowns Ms. Johnson favored. A series of commemorative plaques at the North 8th Street entrance and a mosaic of a poem she wrote will pay tribute to her. Construction of the first phase is expected to be completed by June 2021 and open by the end of August 2021.

Pier-107-01 Rendering via Jacobscheng Architecture for Friends of the East River Esplanade
East Harlem's Pier 107 has been closed since 2018 due to structural instability, but that is set to change: According to am New York Metro, the once-popular fishing and community destination will be among the repairs to the East River Esplanade for which Mayor de Blasio has just allocated funds. Officials including Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver, and City Council Member Ben Kallos have applauded the measure and look forward to the beautification and infrastructure improvements, which will incorporate rising sea levels into the planning and design. A designer and schedule have not yet been announced, but Jacobschang Architecture proposed a vision calling for a new pavilion, new landscaping, fishing-related amenities, and sustainable design principles.

To the north, the Harlem River Greenway will create new parkland between East 125th and 132nd Streets. After several community meetings and other outreach events, the project will incorporate new passive and active recreation areas, youth athletic areas, public art installation areas, and a dog run. Separate bike and pedestrian pathways will weave through the park.

As part of the Downtown Brooklyn Redevelopment Plan of 2004, Willoughby Square Park is taking shape half a block from the Fulton Street Mall. When the new green space ultimately opens, a key component will be a permanent public artwork commemorating the neighborhood's abolitionist history. Local artist Kameelah Janan Rasheed’s conceptual proposal was tabled in January 2021, but she has been encouraged to engage with the community to gather more feedback. In the meantime, a portion of the site opened for public use in July 2019.

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.

Most recently, construction kicked off on 50 Kent, which is currently being used as a pop-up park. The park will include features for passive and active recreation including new seating areas, gathering area, expansive lawns, an overlook with picturesque views of the City, and water play features to help keep cool during the summer months. The $7.7 million park was one of four Brooklyn parks chosen for reconstruction and revitalization (Susan Smith McKinney Steward Park, above, is another). Upon completion, both sites at Bushwick Inlet 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. Construction broke ground in December 2020, and completion is estimated for the end of 2021.

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 project is targeting LEED Gold certification.
