RiverHouse, One Rockefeller Park

One Rockefeller Park is situated on the last, and arguably the best, waterfront site in Battery Park City. The 264 one-to-four-bedroom condominium residences are being developed by The Sheldrake Organization, with design by Ennead (formerly Polshek Partnership), Ismael Leyva and David Rockwell. One Rockefeller Park offers a diversity of living styles, including simplex, floor-through, duplex, and many penthouse layouts.

In addition to 260 residential units, the 54,000 sq. ft.  building with 31 stories, also houses retail space, a public library, a green building education center and rental space for not-for-profit organizations. At the base of the tower is a four-story glass-enclosed atrium and the building’s design is configured around a 14,000 sq. ft. courtyard flanked by two mid-rise wings, and a 32-story south-facing tower.

One Rockefeller Park utilizes environmentally responsible materials, green roofs, state-of-the-art air and water filtration, and recycling technologies in delivering the highest performance green living standards ever offered in condominium living in Manhattan.

VDA provided full services through construction administration for three (3) gearless traction elevators, four (4) geared traction elevators and one (1) two-stop holeless hydraulic elevator.  The project was completed in March 2008.
