The Riverside Center complex spans eight acres from West 59th Street to 61st Street. The overall plan calls for thousands of residential units, 140,000 square feet of retail, an elementary school, a public plaza and a 250-room hotel.
The Riverside Center Plaza is a massive park project that connects the four towers on the W. Side Highway. Sponzilli Landscape Group’s Urban Landscape division is responsible for large specimen tree plantings, thousands of native perennials, Geofoam terrain, Corten steel edging and walls and an intermingling water feature that runs through the project and cascades into a reservoir.
