Developer Donald Trump acquired the abandoned rail yards along the Hudson River south of 72nd Street and created 12 residential buildings with 5,700 apartments and a 23-acre waterfront park on the 56-acre site. The development represents a major southward extension of the celebrated Riverside Park. It is worth noting that development plans here marked a departure for Trump from his trademark over-the-top marble-and-bronze interiors and other megawatt glam details. Post-Modern rather than brazenly modern, the buildings are heavily influenced by the pre-war towers along Riverside Drive. Completed in 2003, the 31-story, 170-unit condominium tower at 240 Riverside Boulevard is the northernmost building in the Trump Place project and is recognizable for its curved base. The full-service condominium offers residents a full-time doorman, a concierge, a full-service garage, a health club, a roof deck, a garden, basement storage and central A/C as well as commanding views of the Hudson River and much of Manhattan. Steps away, Riverside Park and Hudson Greenway with its bike and running trails, dog run, playgrounds and 750-foot pier is one of the city's best new waterfront recreation areas.
