There is no better New York City neighborhood that embodies the essence of water-front living than Battery Park City. Tucked in the southwestern end of Lower Manhattan, Battery Park City and the Riverhouse at 1 River Terrace are a cozy pair that play off each other's strengths. The Riverhouse is a 31-story Manhattan condominium building that takes great advantage of the 92-acre of greenery along the Hudson River in Battery Park City.
True to its status as a Gold LEED certified building, apartments for sale at 1 River Terrace make every effort and attempts to be environmentally friendly. The living room is mindfully finished with sustainably harvested bamboo flooring and white honed-finish travertine with teakwood marble accents compose the bathroom walls and floor. Kitchens are thoughtfully designed by David Rockwell with custom cabinetry and supplied European Energy Star appliances by Thermador, Sub-Zero, Miele and Bosch. Many of the windows in the building are triple layered that will double or even triple the amount of insulation in each apartment to increase energy efficiency while reducing the cost of energy supply.
From the moment that residents and guests arrive at the Riverhouse, they are greeted by the 24-hour doorman and concierge service inside the lobby designed by David Rockwell. A live-in resident manager, on-site parking garage, 50-foot lap pool, private pet grooming area and fitness center with yoga studio are just some of the other amenities granted to the building's residents. Perhaps one of the coolest perks of living at the Riverhouse is the building's exclusive tree house or the mobile app that will alert its residents of incoming visitors, packages waiting for be picked up or submit requests for repair services. The Riverhouse at 1 River Terrace is an excellent combination of everything that are essentials to live in, or temporarily escape from Manhattan.
