“Located along the Hudson River, 160 Riverside Boulevard is a premier New York apartment building with a robust amenity package and excellent proximity to nearby employers, public transit and entertainment districts,” David Greenburg, principal of Square Mile Capital, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to continue our financing activity in New York City.”

Situated between 67th and 68th streets adjacent to West Side Highway, the multifamily was first developed in 2001 by Hudson Waterfront. The building’s amenities include a 24-hour fitness center and concierge, a clubhouse with a media room, a resident lounge, on-site laundry facility, valet dry cleaning and an underground parking garage.
