A Full Service Edgewater Community

About Independence Harbor

General Description:

Independence Harbor contains 524 units making it the largest condominium complex in Edgewater. It is considered  the  crown jewel of Edgewater with so many different layouts in its ideal Hudson River waterfront location directly abutting the Hudson River Walkway. Building started in 1989 by The Hartz Mountain Corporation and continued in separate phases through 1994, with the last buildings built directly on the Hudson River and with panoramic views of the river and the NYC skyline. The complex is a cluster of 14, 6-story buildings built on a 1,500 foot pier on the Hudson River.  The 25-acre Independence Harbor site was the former home of the Ford Motor Company.  Each building is named after one of the signers of the United States Declaration of Independence. 

Independence Harbor is an example of the gentrification that has taken place in Edgewater since 1980.  The original pier, built in 1928, became the assembly operations for the Model A that had just replaced the Model T Ford. The newly constructed plant consisted of 400,000 square feet the most modern technology of the time enabling workers to assemble a vehicle in 48 minutes from one end of the plant to the other. 

Today this sprawling, gated community, sits directly on the Hudson River, just south of the major shopping at the Edgewater Commons and just north of the upscale City Place Mall shopping, and the Edgewater Multiplex Movie Theater. It is surrounded by the public Walkway with security access onto the grounds.
Independence Harbor has many amenities.  With a beautiful children’s playground area, a resort style community swimming pool, 3 tennis courts, a full community clubhouse and party room, health club, garage parking, on-site management, and a 24-hour gatehouse and private access to the Hudson River Walkway making this complex a true  gem of the  Edgewater condominium marketplace.
