Two Waterline Square Penthouse Inside Look

Million Dollar Villas wrote about the Two Waterline Square Project a couple of months ago and want to update you about this prestigious luxury project and show you some inside looks in a luxury penthouse that is available for just $17.25 million.

That luxury apartment is located in the largest of the three buildings at Two Waterline Square, situated along Riverside Boulevard from 59th to 61st Street and sits atop on the 38th floor with majestic views on the Hudson River, the Manhattan Skyline and New Jersey. In case you didn’t know it yet, it is the last remaining waterfront development on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. We won’t say hurry up in case you are interested to buy it because you are smart enough to think that yourself.

This luxury gem can be found in the largest and tallest of the three buildings and is designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox firm. You know them from the Petersen Automotive Museum in LA, the Echelon Seaport in Boston, the Brickell Arch in Miami, Hudson Yards in New York City and many, many more impressive projects around the globe.

This 4,134 square foot (384,1 square meters) luxury residence has interiors by the famed Yabu Pushelberg duo and features 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, a powder room, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and an outdoor terrace to die for. A more than generous living and dining area large enough to accommodate guests occupy the center of the floor. Furthermore a spacious master suite with his-and-hers dressing rooms and his-and-hers marble bathrooms has found a place here.

Living here will give you access to Two Waterline Square’s amenities but you also will have access to the Waterline Club. Here you find more than 100,000 square feet of luxury amenities in sports, leisure and lifestyle spaces. We mention a music room where you can play instruments, a soccer court, an indoor tennis court, a basketball court, two swimming pools, a game room, pet spaces and children’s rooms.

A covered porte-cochere at ground level gives the residence a convenient and perfect entrance to the building. You will certainly like this amenity when it is raining or snowing. Just off the lobby the first-ever upscale Cipriani’s food hall will be available for some great Italian food.

Living in a Luxury Rental with Million Dollar Views in Newport, Jersey City

Who doesn’t want to have a million dollar view on Manhattan and the Hudson River from the balcony?
If that is what you want you probably end up buying a multi-million dollar condo. But there is another way of having that view and that’s renting a luxury apartment in the Ellipse building, a the 42-story luxury rental tower in the Newport neighborhood of Jersey City just across from Lower Manhattan, New York. The views are breathtaking, the apartments are stunning and the amenities are abundant and luxurious. So let’s have a look and see what can be found.


Location, location, location

First you will notice the location of the building on the Hudson River waterfront and the oval shape with its glass façade, designed by Arquitectonica, the internationally acclaimed architecture firm. No other high rises around so there is an unobstructed view of the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline, which is at least breathtaking from every luxury residence.

Luxurious Residences

There are 381 luxurious residences in Ellipse and they range from large studios to three-bedroom home but also five luxury penthouses of which two have four bedrooms. The residences have floor-to-ceiling windows of course so you can enjoy the amazing water and city skyline views and oak plank hardwood floors, high-end stainless appliances and quartz counter tops in the kitchens, multi-room climate control and in-unit washer/dryers and abundant closet space are standard. Select apartments feature walk-ins.

Luxury Amenities

Living in a luxury building means there must be luxury amenities and yes it’s there; 24,000 square feet of it. It starts when you enter the striking two-level lobby where the 24-hour doorman keeps an eye on the premises. If you are a work-from-home-resident you will enjoy the co-working space but if you only want to socialize a bit you can enjoy the multipurpose lounge and game room. If you love to exercise or workout while enjoying a view, enjoy the state-of-the-art gym with sweeping views of Manhattan. Kids will enjoy a fully equipped children’s playroom.
Outside is the premier amenity at Ellipse; an expansive outdoor pool with a lounge chair filled terrace with fire pit and barbeque area.

The Neighborhood

And what can be found in the neighborhood? As a resident you can enjoy access to Newport Green, a 4.25 acre park with the only urban beach on the Hudson River.
