Located at the crossroads of Brooklyn's most idyllic neighborhoods, including Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Bridge Park and Brooklyn Heights, River Park includes restored landmarks, contemporary townhomes and sculptural towers that float above the cityscape.
"At River Park, we are creating more than just a residential destination; we are bringing an entirely new lifestyle experience to this iconic Brooklyn neighborhood," said Jonathan Landau, CEO of Fortis Property Group. "The masterplan is envisioned by a dream team of the best creative minds in architecture and design, and collectively we have created a thoughtful series of unique properties both suitable for the waterfront yet made with a pallet of traditional materials common to Cobble Hill."
Developed by Fortis Property Group, this is one of the largest redevelopment projects in New York City since the launch of Hudson Yards. Spanning nearly one million-square-feet, River Park will be comprised of seven unique properties, which will form a thoughtful ensemble of individualized architectural approaches.
