According to the architects, Curtis + Ginsberg, the building’s design was informed by the image of the rocky cliffs of the Palisades across the Hudson. The apartment complex is near the 4 and 6 trains and just two blocks from Central Park.

Applicants who live in New York City will receive a general preference for apartments. A percentage of units is being set aside for applicants with disabilities (mobility, 5%; vision/hearing 2%). Residents of Manhattan Community Board 11 will receive a preference for 50 percent of units; municipal employees will receive preference for five percent of units.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until December 6, 2019. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
