Riverside Penthouse

Nothing offers as spectacular a view onto the Hudson River as Manhattan’s famed Riverside Drive. This project was completed over several years by one of our most committed, hands on, hard working, inventive clients ever. All the detailing is a testament to clever thinking and persevered loyalty to the design “idea”.

Expansions atop historic landmark buildings in New York City are an excellent way to enhance the use and value of those real estate assets. As you might expect, the architectural ambitions for these enlargements need to be reconciled with City regulations, budgets, and timelines. Still, with some patience and helpful guidance, the results are almost always certainly worth the effort.

Agencie recently completed such an addition atop 2 contiguous Landmark Co-Ops off Riverside Drive in the Upper West Side. In addition to the engineering and design challenges, the project also required a zoning lot merger, purchase of roof rights, community group buy-in efforts, and deep dives into material properties and performance to meet the Owner’s exciting and particular requirements.

The end result of all this work is an enlargement that compliments the original massing of the Landmark building, while distinguishing itself as a modern addition, articulated as a solarium and patinaed enclosure. The resultant living areas provide an exciting amenity for the wonderful family that will hopefully occupy this space for years to come.
