Promenade Global

150 West 225th Street is a 32-story, waterfront tower
perched high above the historic Marble Hill/Riverdale
neighborhood that includes 318 residential units;
41,000 SF of deck at entry level; 1,700 SF of walkway
and bridge from W 225th Street; and a lower level
7,000 SF deck. Under new ownership, the development
is undergoing a complete renovation, which when
complete, will have transformed the property into the
premier building in Marble Hill/Riverdale.
ABB was retained to provide landscape architectural
design services for the renovation project. The new
site design for the project addresses the entry and
12,000 SF of improvements to the upper deck to
provide residents with new outdoor amenities.
The entry design takes advantage of an indigenous
rock outcropping to frame the entry and combines
this with new plantings and paving, contemporary
railings, fencing, gates, pedestrian level lighting, and
identity signage to create a new entry experience.
The design for the on-deck recreational areas include
a raised wood deck along the river side to maximize
river views and includes pergola covered lounge areas
with tables and chairs and lush plantings, a central
lawn that supports recreational play or relaxation,
and a designated children’s play area that includes a
climbing play structure, freestanding play elements,
and an open synthetic turf play space.
