YONKERS—Strategic Capital, the investment arm of China Construction America, recently hosted an exclusive ribbon-cutting ceremony for the River Club at Hudson Park luxury rental apartment tower on the Hudson River waterfront here.

The ceremony was attended by Ning Yuan, CCA Chairman and President and Strategic Capital Chairman and CEO; Huang Ping, Consul General of China in New York, and Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano. Located at 63 Wells Ave., River Club is approximately 50% occupied after launching leasing at the end of 2018.

“River Club presented us with a unique opportunity—the city of Yonkers is in the midst of a massive transformation and the building’s waterfront location enabled us to ensure unprecedented views and a less than 30-minute-commute to Midtown Manhattan,” said Ning Yuan. “We set out to elevate the level of luxury in Westchester County and looking at the finished project now, and how it is resonating with residents, we couldn’t be prouder.”

The luxury rental tower signifies the fourth and final building in Strategic Capital’s 16-acre waterfront development Hudson Park. The development is stretched along a half mile of the Hudson River Promenade and is comprised of three other rental buildings.

“China Construction America’s investment in the River Club is a testament to the ongoing revitalization of our downtown and the return of our waterfront to our residents,” said Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano. “The addition of River Club to our housing stock provides high-quality living and convenience that continues to make Yonkers the place to live, work and play.”

Consul General of China in New York Huang Ping congratulated the City of Yonkers, China Construction America and its partners on all the cooperation to make this project possible. “CCA is one of the best and they have been doing a lot of projects like River Club.” said Ambassador Huang. “This project further demonstrated that by cooperating together we can create a win-win result. When we continue with our cooperation we can further grow this good relationship between China and the US.”

“We are excited to celebrate the opening of River Club in Westchester’s newest creative hub,” said Phillip Gesue, Chief Development Officer of Strategic Capital. “This project is located in what is becoming one of the most desirable locations outside of New York City and is addressing the demand for new luxury homes among those looking to call Yonkers home.”

The tower’s 213 residences that feature one-and two-bedroom units, have been designed by architectural design firm JSA.

River Club is outfitted with a state-of-the-art fitness center as well as an elegant indoor swimming pool overlooking the Hudson River. Those looking to socialize will enjoy the roof-level River Club Bar, which features expansive views of the Manhattan skyline and New Jersey Palisades. During the winter months, the ground floor River Club Lounge offers a great respite from the cold with a large fireplace with walnut mantle as well as soaring 18-foot ceilings.

River Club is also outfitted with the latest in-home technology, including an automated package concierge locker system for deliveries, a Butterfly MX smartphone video intercom and real-time transportation information provided by Transit Screen. It is pet-friendly and offers smoke-free living, as well as a 24-hour concierge service to assist with residents’ needs and requests.

A café is currently under construction nearby at 1 Alexander St. The space is being designed by the founder of Jersey City’s popular Grind Café and will offer a built-in extension of the residential amenities spaces at River Club.

Move-ins at River Club at Hudson Park are well underway. Pricing begins at $1,720 for studios, $2,190 for one-bedrooms, and $2,870 for two-bedrooms.
