Buildings We Love: Riverwalk Place (NYC)

Buildings We Love: Riverwalk Place (NYC)In the Port Imperial district of West New York, you can find 55 Riverwalk Place which is a 9-story luxury apartment building with 348 units. This unique complex has a plethora of floor plans, most featuring 9-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, full-size washer and dryer, and oversized windows that lend an open, airy feel to the rooms. Residents are also treated to soaking tubs, marble bathroom vanity counters, and walk-in closets. Some units also offer a breathtaking view of the Manhattan skyline across the river.

The complex is situated between Port Imperial Blvd. and the Hudson River, tucked in among several other condo complexes and a thriving retail and food scene. The building itself, managed by Roseland Properties, features some amenities that are truly above and beyond, in addition to the usual expected luxury features of a New York apartment. Some of the extras that residents of 55 Riverwalk Place enjoy are:

  • 24-hour concierge
  • Screening room that seats 18-20 people, complete with full-wall movie screen
  • Business center
  • Parking garage
  • Billiards and lounge
  • Fitness center
  • Outdoor heated swimming pool
  • Grills in the third floor courtyard

One of the most touted features of this grand, brick structure is that it is within walking distance of the NY Waterway Ferry Terminal. Catch the ferry across to work, or take advantage of the nearby access to the light rail line which can transport you nearly anywhere you could possibly need to go in the Northeast.

Inhabitants of 55 Riverwalkplace are truly spoiled by the presence of an A&P grocery store right downstairs from the apartments. Imagine never having to leave your complex just to pick up milk and toiletries? The building also houses a place to buy spirits and a Starbucks coffee shop.

In the event that you do want to leave and grab dinner nearby, there is a P.F. Chang’s just two blocks over, as well as a close-by Cuban supper club, a Mediterranean restaurant, Italian, Brazilian, and of course pizza. Prefer some spirited nightlife instead? Hop on the ferry and just a few minutes later you can enjoy one of the multitude of bars and pubs available just across the river in Manhattan.

If exercise is your thing, enjoy the treadmills and weights in the gym, take a dip in the heated pool, or go for a walk or a run on the scenic Riverwalk. Take advantage of the close proximity to Old Glory Park to the southwest of the condo complex, or Donnelly Memorial Park just behind it.

With the many amenities like the in-building supermarket, the fitness room, the movie screening room, and the ferry terminal just a few steps outside the door, it’s hard to deny that Riverwalk Place is the ideal balance between New York and suburban living. These West Bank apartments offer all the amenities of luxury Manhattan digs without actually living in Manhattan; but with transportation access so close, you’re practically there.
