Up River

Condos at One Riverside Park—the latest tower in Extell Development Co.’s Upper West Side cluster of modern residences that includes Trump Place—went on the market last month (occupancy is slated for 2015). The 33-story building was designed by Goldstein Hill & West Architects and features interiors by SoHo-based architect and interior designer Shamir Shah, who used his home country of Kenya as inspiration. A palette of earth tones brings a sense of warmth to the contemporary glass and limestone architecture and evokes the tranquillity of the nearby Hudson River Park. A travertine lobby with metal accents and an eye-catching handblown glass chandelier leads to 219 units that feature one to seven bedrooms in 850 to 6,000 square feet and range from $1 million to $25 million. Each residence offers European stained white oak hardwood floors, deep soaking bathtubs, Miele kitchen appliances, and floor-to-ceiling glass windows, most of which offer expansive views of the Hudson River. Five full-floor penthouses are also available, as are two duplexes with private pools. Common areas include a 40,000-square-foot athletic club and spa with a 75-foot swimming pool, a 38-foot rock wall, basketball and squash courts, bowling, a golf simulator, and private treatment rooms. One Riverside Park also will offer convenient access to the Riverside Center, which broke ground this summer and is expected to contain more than 100,000 square feet of retail and dining space, in addition to a public school for grades K through 8 and about 3 acres of green space.
