Background

The Heritage at Trump Place continues in the fashion of Donald Trump's luxury developments. Offering residents views of the Hudson River and Riverside Park, this unique post-modern construction provides residents an aesthetic treat, both inside and out.

The luxury amenities, convenient location and high-end finishes make the Heritage at Trump Place a sought-after location on Manhattan's popular Upper West Side.

Location

Located along the Hudson, the community that has been built around Riverside Boulevard can be directly tied to Donald Trump's vision. It was his influence that helped to convince city council to allow the creation of the Boulevard and later, development of the land in the face of some opposition.[1]

Residents of The Heritage at Trump Place have easy access to Riverside Park, Central Park and Broadway. There are numerous markets for grocery shopping in the area, as well as gourmet restaurants and local cafes. Within a half-mile of The Heritage are a number of well-known stores and boutiques. Schools are easily accessible to residents of 240 Riverside Boulevard and are considered very good.

Columbia University is also nearby. Cultural amenities litter the area, including the American Folk Art Museum and the American Museum of Natural history, both less than a mile away. Transit is nearby, in the case of the bus only feet from the lobby of 240 Riverside Boulevard, while the subway is only a third of a mile away, making it a great location from which to get around town.[2]

Construction

As has often been the case for his New York developments, Donald Trump turned to architect Costas Kondylis to design The Heritage at Trump Place. The lower portions of this post-modern building are rounded which, in part, explains the use of concrete is its primary building material.

Completed in 2005, the unique, white facade of the Heritage at Trump Palace is made of limestone. The northern-most building on the Trump Place development, The Heritage offers the skyline, along the Hudson River, a visually intriguing and appealing visage.[3]

Layout and Features

Originally, units in this building ranged in number of bedrooms from a studio to 5. There have been a number of units that have, since, been combined, and feature significantly more bedrooms in their current layout. Apartments oriented towards the New Jersey border have the benefit of both a Hudson River and Riverside Park view. Each unit is finely appointed with high-end finishes and top-of-the-line appliances. Bathrooms feature marble. Some units have upgraded to marble floors throughout much of the rest of the unit, as well. Units are generally a good size and terraces are available in a number of them.[4]

Trivia

  • Robin Roberts, Good Morning America Host, owned a unit in this building until recently.
  • The ground floor was originally intended to be a synagogue, though the deal fell through after foreclosure on the space last year.[6]
  • The Riverside Boulevard area was originally going to be one large Trump development on which he planned to build the tallest building, the working name of which was Television City. That land has since been parceled out to other developers who have moved away from Trump's grand scale thinking. However, despite the towers not being as immense, density in the area is higher than would have been the case had Trump moved forward with his Television City vision.[7]
  • Recently put on the market, one unit, a conglomerate of, formerly 6 apartments features a jellyfish tank, for those that may consider fish tanks passe.[8]
