Riverside Boulevard: Manhattan's Exciting New Neighborhood
Riverside Boulevard is perhaps the most exciting new community in Manhattan. The new west coast extends along the Hudson River from West 59th Street to West 72nd Street on 92 waterfront acres, formerly occupied by the Pennsylvania Rail Road yards.
Donald Trump bought the property back in the 1970's. After a few failed proposals for the Riverside South property including the world’s tallest building at 152 stories named Television City, hoping to entice NBC as prime tenant, in 1991 Trump and a coalition of community and civic groups agreed to reduce the project’s size by 40% to 8.3 million square feet.
The buildings would range from 30 to 40 stories, and the waterfront park would cover 23 acres. Design standards would impose variations among the towers, and the street plan would respect the existing West Side grid. In exchange, the civic groups promised to usher the Trump proposal through the land use review process. The first building was completed in 1998.
The four Trump Place condominium buildings (120, 200, 220 & 240 Riverside Boulevard) front the Hudson River along the northern most boundary adjoining Riverside Park. Trump also built rental buildings located at 140, 160, and 180 Riverside Boulevard.
