270 Riverside Drive is a magnificent turn of the century building with an impressive granite and limestone façade, which represents craft taken to the level of art. Located in a historic district directly facing Riverside Park, the intention of the developer was to preserve the ambiance and historical authenticity of this rare gem built in 1910. With direct views of the Hudson River from a high vantage point, the building is located deep in the heart of the true Upper West Side of the city. Filigreed wrought iron doors open into the huge elegant lobby whose period-inspired restoration is warm and welcoming. The residences were carefully designed with authentic prewar detail and custom finishes to offer spacious layouts for today’s lifestyle. All of the homes have richly stained oak herringbone floors, plaster moldings, neatly concealed central air conditioning, over-sized custom wood framed windows and a complete Thermador kitchen appliance package. Rethinking the floorplans for maximum flow and livability, each layout offers very high ceilings, large windows, and more than generous closet space. The building offers both storage bins and bicycle storage.
