Riverdale has it all - a distinctive charm, long-established character and a safe neighborhood feel, mixed with an accessibility to everything New York City has to offer
Riverdale, NY (PRWEB) November 29, 2007
Sales have opened at Latitude, the new 53-home luxury residential condominium rising in the heart of New York City's desirable Riverdale District.
Prices for the primarily one- and two-bedroom residences in the pair of seven-story buildings at the corner of Riverdale Avenue and 236th Street begin at $388,500 for one-bedroom units and generally in the mid-to-high-$500,000's for two-bedroom homes, according to Aroza Sanjana, president of Atlantic Realty Partners, Latitude's exclusive sales and marketing agent. There are also a limited number of coveted duplex and penthouse homes available, starting at $724,500.
"Riverdale is a terrific neighborhood with a number of rental and coop buildings and million-dollar estate homes, but there has been very little new residential development until recently," notes Robert Quaco, a principal of the development firm, Q-Real Estate Partners.
"Latitude will stand at the forefront of that new activity, thanks in large part to renowned architect Karl Fischer's ability to design a variety of well-conceived floorplans that provide buyers with the flexibility to select the home that best meets their needs and tastes. What's more, we believe Latitude offers extraordinary value when compared with much higher prices found in lower Manhattan, Harlem and emerging Brooklyn neighborhoods."
Andres Escobar, an outstanding leader in interior design for more than 20 years who is responsible for award-winning work throughout the world, has made his Riverdale debut with striking home interiors and common spaces at Latitude. His approach combines rich woods and luxurious stone, which give interiors an overall feeling of classic elegance that flows from the well-appointed lobbies to the individual kitchens and baths in the homes.
Found among the floor plans, which range in size from 724 to1,564 square feet of living space, are nine-foot tall ceiling heights, maple wood flooring, private balconies and terraces, ample closet space and individual laundry facilities in each home. Kitchens feature CaesarStone quartz countertops, undermount stainless steel sinks with custom made faucets, rich mahogany wood cabinets, recessed lighting and a GE Profile appliance package, while master bathrooms are notable for limestone tile floors, custom designed vanities, Robern medicine cabinets and frameless shower glass doors.
Residents of Latitude will also enjoy a wide range of lifestyle enriching amenities including a gym, rooftop terraces on both buildings, a children's playroom, attended doorman and Cyberdoorman service, and optional deeded parking.
"Riverdale has it all - a distinctive charm, long-established character and a safe neighborhood feel, mixed with an accessibility to everything New York City has to offer," notes Sanjana of Atlantic Realty Partners.
"The Botanical Gardens, Bronx Zoo, Wave Hill Gardens, good restaurants, horseback riding and golf in Van Cortlandt Park and all kinds of shopping are available nearby. There are highly rated public schools and several prominent private schools. Commuters can take advantage of ample public transportation options for a quick ride into Manhattan; the #1 subway line is within walking distance, the MetroNorth shuttles riders from across the street to the Riverdale MetroNorth station which is little more than a 20 minute ride to Grand Central."
