Extell’s most prominent project to date is the waterfront reclamation of the former Central Rail Yards on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, which represents one of the largest residential development transactions in New York City’s history. Stretching from 72nd to 59th Streets along the Hudson River and Riverside Park South, the 77-acre site known as Riverside South was approved in 1992 and development commenced in the mid 1990s.
In November 2005, Extell and its Joint Venture partner acquired the remaining undeveloped sites from 65th to 59th Streets.
When complete, Riverside South will include more than 7,000 new homes, retail plazas, restaurants, a K-8 school, parking and over 21 acres of parkland. Riverside Center
