With balconies in each apartment and breathtaking views of the Hudson River from the higher south-facing units, the newly-opened Park Place Tower building in the heart of downtown Peekskill is bringing a new vitality and economic activity to the city.

Featuring hardwood floors in each apartment and all the hallways, modern finishes, high ceilings, heated bathroom floors and large windows that provide each resident with natural light, the eight-floor building on Brown Street is 20 percent leased and attracting potential new residents from near and far.

“We’ve been receiving lots of interest from people throughout the area including Ossining, Mahopac, Poughkeepsie, Brooklyn, the Bronx and local Peekskill people as well,” said Steven Irizarry, the licensed real estate salesperson with The Irizarry Team at Serhant, the leasing agent for the building.

The main entrance to Park Place Tower is on Brown Street. The building takes up the city block bordered by Park Street, Broad Street and James Street and sits just above the new Central Firehouse.

People who don’t want to or can’t buy in the current housing market, New York City residents looking for the most affordable Hudson River waterfront community, small families, and local seniors looking to downsize are all expressing interest in Park Place Tower, according to Irizarry.

Amenities included at no charge include an expansive fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment and a residents’ lounge, a stylishly appointed space designed to foster community and relaxation. New tenants will receive one month of free rent and three months of free parking.

“The most important thing for us is creating a community within the community,” Irizarry said. “We’re going to have happy hour events once a month. We’ll have personal trainers coming in to work with our residents and Pilates and yoga instructors.”

Irizarry is constantly busy showing people apartments and also reaching out to the Peekskill community. Promotional tie-ins with the Peekskill Coffee House and Mid-Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union will introduce the new residents to Peekskill. With the city’s thriving restaurants and the many live events happening at the Paramount Center for the Arts nearby, residents will have many choices for dining and entertainment.

Rents range from $2,000 per month for a studio to $3,650 for a 1,100-square-foot three bedroom, two bathroom unit. Two massive three-bedroom, two bathroom ninth-floor penthouse units with huge balconies rent for $4,217 and $4,340. Laundry facilities are available for residents in the building. And dog and cat pets are welcomed.

A live-in superintendent is available to manage any needs for residents and oversee the daily operations in the 184-apartment building. Leasing agents are on-site Monday thru Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. To arrange a visit, call (914) 302-0400 or email [email protected]

The retail space on Park Street will bring new stores and shopping opportunities. So far a daycare center and clothing store are committed and the owners are seeking a restaurant. A large outdoor patio space provides a play area for kids and will host outdoor dining in the future.

“Everything involving these services for our residents is free of charge,” Irizarry said. “We want to have as many community events as possible to help everyone form bonds here.

“We believe that if you know who your neighbors are, and not just passing by them casually in the elevator or the common areas, and you know their families, what they do for a living, I think people will feel more comfortable staying here for a long period of time. We want to help build a neighborhood here at Park Place Tower.”

Building a new neighborhood in Peekskill as a part of the larger community is the goal for Park Place Tower.

“That’s what we’ve done at other projects we have and something that we pride ourselves on – creating a really great community of residents within the building,” he said.

“We’re big on providing great service and value to our residents and we’d rather retain them instead of having turnover. If people know each other, and unless they need to relocate, they’ll think twice about moving out.”
