Market-Rate Condos and Workforce Housing in a New Neighborhood on Roosevelt Island
Riverwalk Place was the third building completed by Hudson and the Related Companies in the Riverwalk neighborhood. The building contains market-rate condos as well as housing for Weill Cornell Medicine postdoctoral associates, faculty and their families. The building contains a fitness center, garden, lounge, and roof deck, and a 24-hour attended lobby.
In 1997, the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation (RIOC) designated Hudson and the Related Companies to create a new neighborhood that would fulfill the island’s General Development Plan designed by Philip Johnson and John Burgee. Today the development provides high-quality housing, open space, and neighborhood-serving retail that is a short subway and tram ride away from Manhattan’s Upper East Side and one-ferry ride from Astoria and Long Island City.
Upon completion, the Riverwalk neighborhood will consist of approximately 2,000 residential units across 9 buildings with 40% of the total units affordable to residents earning less than 148% of AMI.
