Ginsburg Marketing Luxury Rental Units in Nearby Ossining
by Rick Pezzullo
About half of the 188 one and two-bedroom luxury rental apartments at Harbor Square in the Village of Ossining are still available two months after the $65 million complex on the Hudson River waterfront opened.
Harbor Square marked the Westchester County debut of Ginsburg Development’s GDC Rentals brand of luxury resort-style properties, which launched last year with the opening of a 108-unit complex in Rockland. Ginsburg Development Companies was founded in 1964 by principal Martin Ginsburg, who is widely known as one of the premier residential developers in the northern suburbs of New York City. One of his developments is Ichabod’s Landing in Sleepy Hollow.
Ginsburg joined Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino and other local elected officials at the Harbor Square ribbon cutting grand opening in June.
“Working together we have been able to transform a former industrial property into a magnificent mixed-use residential community featuring luxury rental residences, a first class riverfront restaurant and a new public park where residents and their families can enjoy the incomparable beauty of one of the world’s greatest rivers,” Ginsburg said at the event. “As a transit-oriented development, Harbor Square appeals to both millennials and empty nesters who want the convenience of being just a short walk to the Metro North train station.”
Many units at Harbor Square offer bay windows and balconies with striking views of the Hudson.
As the only full service luxury rental building in Westchester’s river villages, the complex offers 24-hour front desk concierge services with package and dry cleaning acceptance and penthouse amenities, including a club lounge; a first class fitness center with personal trainers; a spa with treatments from licensed massage therapists and a rooftop pool and sundeck with barbecue stations.
One-bedroom apartments range from a 683-square-foot unit priced from $2,395 to a 1,114-square-foot unit with a separate dining room, large den/guest room and two full baths priced at $3,295. Two bedroom units range from $3,195 for a 1,156-square-foot apartment to $6,000 for a 1,448 square-foot penthouse corner apartment with walls of glass and head-on river views.
Meanwhile, also in June, Jenifer Ross, founder and owner of W@tercooler, the county’s first co-working space that was located in Tarrytown, joined Ginsburg Development Companies as its Director of Community Experience for GDC Rentals. She also manages the social media for the company.
Ross previously worked for GDC from 2004 to 2008 as a consultant for Ginsburg’s annual Ferry-Go-Round festival, a celebration of the Hudson River and neighboring communities.
