Senior living getting upgrade at RiverSpring’s River’s Edge

The campus would be first life plan community


A new building will soon join the RiverSpring Living campus, River’s Edge. The building is meant to be a luxury senior living home for nearly 300 people.

The new facility is expected to have 266 apartment and, as of January 2024, RiverSpring has presold 139 of those apartments. They are preselling the apartments to allow people to invest into their own future. RiverSpring intends to break ground on the project when they have sold 65 percent of the building’s allotted capacity.

The minimum age requirement is 62. The apartments welcome singles and couples.

While their independent living facility offers amenities and services, River’s Edge intends to go above and beyond to provide the luxury lifestyle they believe senior adults deserve.

Laura Wilker, head of communications and marketing for RiverSpring Living, said that the facility will offer resort-style amenities. These will include “world class dining, housekeeping, concierge services, curated programs and activities, fitness classes, an aquatic center with a salt water pool, and more.” Residents are even encouraged to bring along their pets.

Apartment size and price varies but as it is still in just the beginning phases all presales include an entrance fee and an eventual monthly fee. Entrance fees range from $492,100 to $1.8 million.

Wilker said life plan communities offer independence and long term care.

“If and when your health changes and you need assisted living or memory care or skilling nursing those services are provided seamlessly on the same campus,” she said.

River’s Edge would become New York City’s first and only life plan community, according to RiverSpring. Such communities, also known as continuing care retirement communities, offer older adults the safety net of independent living and the guarantee of further care when and if they need it.

Chief executive Daniel Reingold is excited about the new development.

“Residents get seamless access to future care options right here on campus, providing them with peace of mind and financial security,” he said.

RiverSpring’s has many existing facilities that adults at River’s Edge would have access to. Residents in need of minor rehab could do outpatient and continue to stay in their own home during treatment, or they can spend a short time in rehab and return back to their own space once healed. The intention is to make the transition some and easy while offering the luxury and fun that many wait for come retirement, according to RiverSpring.
