Admirals Cove, a Luxury Resort-Style Community on the Hudson in Haverstraw, Debuts

Ginsburg Development Companies (GDC) has completed Admirals Cove, its final luxury development along the Hudson River in the Village of Haverstraw.

Village, Town and County officials on June 15 attended the grand opening of GDC’s development, which is set on a peninsula with water on three sides and a private marina, Admirals Cove includes 245 luxury apartments in four boutique-scaled buildings, a fitness center and two community club lounges.

The apartments (studios, one, two and three-bedrooms) range from 495 square feet to 1,280 square feet with monthly rents ranging from $2,195 to $5,295.

Lifestyle amenities include a seasonal swimming pool, cabana, sundeck, fire pit, BBQ and children’s playground. There is also a kayak launch, Zen garden, sandy beach, a waterfront restaurant (coming soon), and a commuter ferry to Metro-North Railroad across the Hudson in Ossining. The community has both outdoor and garage parking with available EV charging stations. As in all GDC Rental communities, Admirals Cove is pet friendly and smoke-free.

“Today is an exciting moment more than 20 years in the making as GDC opens the final phase of its redevelopment of the Haverstraw waterfront,’ said GDC Principal Martin Ginsburg. “It is magical, with no place on the river quite like it.  And although this marks the successful completion of GDC’s residential development, we will continue to move forward with the construction of a spectacular waterfront restaurant and the extension of the waterfront park and sculpture trail, which will one day connect to the downtown, which has always been the shared vision of GDC and the Village.”

The Village of Haverstraw is attempting a renaissance, attracting waterfront development.

“The Village is pleased to see the Admirals Cove complex opening for rentals,” said Village Mayor Michael Kohut. “It has been several years in the making, and we are excited to add new residents and vibrancy to our waterfront.”
