Battery Park City is a 92 acre (37 hectares) primarily residential neighborhood in New York City on the west side of Manhattan Island South Tip. It is bounded in the west by the Hudson River, in the north and south by the Hudson River, in the east by the West Side Highway. The area is named after the direct South Battery Site. The Battery Site. More than one-third of its development consisted of parkland. The land it was constructed on was created by the redevelopment on the Hudson rivers, using more than three million cubic yards (2.3 million cubic meters per meters) of land and rock excavated in the World Trade Center construction, the New York City Water Tunnel and some other building projects.
The current Battery Park City residential communities are split into North and South by Brookfield Place. The northern portion consists entirely of massive houses, which are 20–45 floors high, and all orange brick shades. The South portion of the Brookfield Place Winter Garden contains luxury apartment buildings, such as the Gateway Plaza and the Rector Court. This portion covers much of the residential areas of Battery Park in three parts: the Gateway Plaza, a high-rise building complex, the Residence Neighborhood of Rector Place and the Industrial Neighborhood Battery Place. The following sub-parts include most residential buildings in the city, as well as parking, supermarkets , restaurants and cinemas. Residential buildings were built in the late 1990s to the north of the World Financial Centre, while final lots were finished by the beginning of 2011. In 2013 a renovation of the park was also completed.
Ownership and maintenance
Battery Park City is owned and operated by the New York State-created Class A Class A Carey Battery Battery Park City Authority (BPCA), founded in 1968 by New York State in order to restructure the rundown, worsened piers. It has a mixed business and residential population that has included reclamation, land regeneration, and encouraged new construction. It was run by the Urban Planning Company. The job is to ‘plann, develop, organize and sustain in New York City, in the lower West, a sustainable commercial, residential , retail and park community.
The Board of the Authority is made up of 7 members appointed and served a six-year term without pay by the Governor. J. Jones is the president and chief executive officer. The BPCA is entrusted with considerable powers: it can purchase, retain and dispose of real property, enter into leasing deals, borrow money and issue debt, and finance the project. Unlike most public benefit companies, the BPCA is excluded from property taxes and has the right to issue tax exempt bonds. In 2017, the BPCA had operating costs of $47.73 million as well as an outstanding debt of $982.85 million, and it employed 240 employees.
In 2018, in Battery Park City, thirty residential buildings were built and no new buildings were envisaged. The primary focus of the Battery Park City Authority is on preserving current facilities, protection and public space conservation. Over 1,000 free activities were created each year.
Battery Park City condo owners are charged higher maintenance rates than most equivalent New York City apartment owners because tenants pay the standard rates of their building in addition to PILOT (payout instead of taxes). Payments by PILOT replace property tax and land rental. Residential units therefore pay more than other neighbourhoods on a monthly basis. The net impact for homeowners is smaller.
Since neither property in Battery Park City owns the land on which it is constructed, some banks declined to write loans if the properties are renewed on a regular basis. The owners of Battery Park City who want to sell have been continuously disappointed.
