The Solaire: An Urban Waterfront Oasis

Property of the Week: Enjoy glistening waterfront views from these new Manhattan residences.

By Serina Tatham

Sitting prettily on the Hudson River waterfront and flanked by two manicured parks, The Solaire is located within one of Manhattan’s most coveted neighborhoods – Battery Park City. As America’s first LEED gold residential high-rise, The Solaire has redefined the perception of green living, right in the heart of the urban playground that is New York.

Part of a vibrant community, the residences are enviably close to some of the best restaurants and shopping outlets, cultural touchstones, numerous green spaces and playgrounds, and activities like ice skating, sailing and swimming.

Having been recently transformed by sustainable architects COOKFOX, Residence 9G enjoys breathtaking views of the Hudson River through floor-to-ceiling windows. At 871 sq ft, this west-facing one-bedroom apartment is bright, airy and flooded with sunlight.

Upon entering the home, the expansive views of the river and city beyond from both the bedroom and living room windows draw you in and make the open-planned area feel spacious. The kitchen features Quartzite countertops, a breakfast bar perfect for entertaining and fully integrated Sub-Zero, Cove, and Wolf appliances.

The bathroom is finished with limestone floors as well as marble walls and counters, giving it a serene and spa-like feel. Just off the foyer is a spacious alcove, ideal as a home office or bedroom space for guests.

Alongside the purchase of one of The Solaire’s Manhattan residences, future homeowners also gain access to a whole host of luxury amenities. A light-filled fitness center is kitted out with state-of-the-art interactive training equipment, and a residents’ lounge and dining area provide ample space to entertain your own guests and meet fellow residents. There is also a children’s playroom as well as a media and games room, providing plenty of opportunities to enjoy a fun-filled afternoon.

But the most impressive feature of The Solaire can be found on the 19th floor where a landscaped roof terrace boasts outdoor kitchens, dining areas, a sundeck and a garden. With sweeping river views, it is the perfect place to enjoy a warm summer evening watching the sunset with friends or barbecuing on a hot summers’ day.

While you enjoy the spectacular vistas from your new home, you can rest assured that everything has been done to ensure the residences are as environmentally friendly as responsible. The building’s façade is comprised of photovoltaic cells, meaning it generates its own electricity, and an on-site water treatment center allows The Solaire to consume only half the water a similar building would. Finally, an air conditioning system removes pollutants from inside, and rainwater irrigation sustains the green roofs.
