An impressive roof deck with killer views has opened atop the Eugene, a 62-story luxury rental tower that's part of the Manhattan West megadevelopment. For an extra fee, residents of the building get access to the Hudson Club, a members-only rooftop club with a sunroom, cocktail bar, private dining room with chef’s kitchen, a poker/game room, piano lounge with a fireplace.
It's part of the greater 4,600-square-foot rooftop terrace, a space complete with barbecue areas, lounge chairs and breathtaking panoramic views.
The 844-unit tower opened this March as Manhattan West's first rental building. Prices on the studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units start at $3,200/month. Since the leasing launch, according to developer Brookfield Property Partners, the building is 67 percent spoken for.
The building holds a whopping 50,000 square feet of amenities, which includes a regulation-size basketball court, a room dedicated to arcade games, a La Palestra gym along with a rock climbing wall and a golf simulator, and of course the roof deck.
But alas, many of these perks can only be used at an additional cost and are not part of tenants’ rent. Only a library lounge, game room, music room and children’s playroom on the second floor of the building comes without any additional fee.
SLCE Architects served as architect of the Eugene and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill designed its façade. The Marketing Directors is marketing and leasing the apartments.
The Eugene is the first of Manhattan West’s buildings to wrap construction—the others are in various stages of completion. Aside from this rental, the overall development will boast nearly six million square feet of office space, a boutique hotel, and lush landscaped gardens weaving throughout eight acres.
