Battery Park


Downtown on the West Side between the Hudson River on the West and South, the West Side
Highway on the East, and Chambers Street on the North.

River views and river life are the biggest draws for seekers of Battery Park City apartments and condos. Because the
land is technically owned by the Battery Park City Authority, a public entity, residents of these downtown condos do
not pay taxes, but rather PILOT — Payments in Lieu of Taxes — which help to maintain the glorious esplanade which is
Battery Park City’s crown jewel. The beautiful ribbon runs for 1.2 miles, linking together a string of kid- and pet-friendly
parks. Many of Battery Park City’s condos look out onto these wonderful bits of green to the Hudson and beyond.
Strolling, rollerblading, biking, or just catching a spectacular sunset or a close-up of the Statue of Liberty are all perks
enjoyed in this wonderful downtown neighborhood.

Built on the southwest tip of Manhattan, Battery Park City is both quiet and convenient. The luxury apartment
living feels similar to suburban life, but is conveniently located near Wall Street for work and lively Tribeca for play.
Riverhouse, Visionaire and Millennium Tower Residences are newer condominiums, providing twice-filtered air and
filtered water — meeting an environmental standard for green living first set by the Solaire, a Battery Park City rental
building that is the nation’s first environmentally-conscious high rise. Hudson Eats offers a high-end food court in
the World Financial Center with establishments such as Blue Ribbon Sushi, Umami Burger and Sprinkles Cupcakes.
Additionally, the eagerly anticipated Le District, described as “a French Eataly,” will open in late 2014, while Brookfield
Place will open high-end retail options in the spring of 2015. Furthermore, an 11-screen movie theater screens both
popular favorites and hosts part of the world-famous Tribeca Film Festival.
