With its rooftop garden and courtyard, luxury residences, and prime Hell’s Kitchen location, Gotham West ticks off all the boxes. What makes the four-building complex truly stand out against other amenity-rich developments, other than its proximity to both Hudson River Park and the culinary darlings of the neighborhood, is its affordable housing. When it opened in 2013, Gotham West was the largest affordable project by a private developer at the time, with about 55 percent of the units restricted by income. Today, applications are being accepted for its no-fee rentals, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms, which are designated for middle-income New Yorkers earning up to 135 percent and 165 percent of the area median income (AMI).

Developed by the Gotham Organization, Gotham West consists of four buildings with a total of over 1,200 apartments. Three of the separate structures are 14 stories while one, which directly overlooks the landscaped courtyard, is 31 stories. SLCE Architects designed the residential complex, which broke ground in 2012 and was completed a year later, with interiors by SPAN and landscape designs by SWA/Balsley.

Units, which range from studios to three-bedrooms, feature custom finishes and fixtures, wide plank oak flooring, full-size stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances, granite countertops, oversized windows with both city and Hudson River views, and individual heating and cooling units.

According to the developer, households earning under 135 percent of the AMI could qualify for a two-bedroom unit priced at roughly $2,670/month and $3,170/month for households making less than 165 percent of the AMI.

The amenity package is noteworthy, with a combination of indoor and outdoor spaces. Inside, residents can enjoy a fitness center with a cycling and yoga studio, game room, a business center, a demonstration kitchen, a children’s playroom, and bike storage. (Note that amenities vary by building within the Gotham West portfolio. Please inquire with the leasing office for more information.)

The 32nd-floor roof deck features lounge chairs, a misting wall, and a movie theater. The building has a private fully-landscaped courtyard and an additional courtyard on the 2nd floor that has a cozy fireplace.

Other perks include a complimentary weekday shuttle that runs from Gotham West to Grand Central Terminal, the “GothamCard” benefits program that offers residents exclusive discounts at a number of restaurants and entertainment venues, and a convenient Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) pickup location in partnership with Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-Op.

Living above the Gotham West Market has its obvious benefits, like access to some of the best food vendors in New York City, including dell’anima, Corner Slice, La Palapa, and Sushi on Jones x Don Wagyu. Plus, all residents receive 10 percent off orders at the food hall with their GothamCard.
