River House, one of Manhattan’s most exclusive co-op buildings, wants to turn their private 5-story club into New York City’s largest residence. The River House was designed by classical American architect, William Bottomley, and was opened in 1931. The proposed residence will be approximately 62,000 square feet of living space, which is the size of 10 NY townhomes! The proposed renovation was designed by renowned interior designer Tony Ingrao. It will feature an 8,400 square foot entrance/living level with massive formal rooms with 20′ ceilings. The 27,500 square foot garden/entertainment level will feature a 62′ indoor swimming pool, tennis court, IMAX home theater, wine cellar, spa and a game room. The 15,000 square foot bedroom level will features a master suite with his-and-her bathrooms. The 6,000 square foot staff level will feature bedrooms, work areas and lounges. It is listed at a whopping $130 million!

    Honestly, I’d rather have one of those townhouse 1/10th the size of this, but preserved with all the period details. I wonder what the place looks like now. Something on the UES.

    Pie in the sky. River House is past its prime and this is an attention-getting move to to try to return the building to prominence. I’d much rather have a 19th century townhouse in the West Village at 1/10th the size for 10% of the price, like Daniel said.

    A multiyear nightmare that will most likely, never come to fruition. Even for people with the ability to see it through to completion, I doubt the bragging rights would justify the headaches.
    I can’t imagine what the real purpose is, behind this publicity seeking stunt. Residents of these high dollar coop’s, don’t like the specter of public observation. Something’s fishy.

    I’m sitting here just trying to fathom 62,000 sq ft in NYC………….

    It just doesn’t even seem possible. Lemme guess, they are going to put it in Madison Square Garden, which I’m guessing isn’t 62,000 sq either. (JOKE of course)

    62,000 sq ft…. IN NYC???!!!!

    Most apartments have like 600 sq ft. And they cost like $2,000 a month.
