Long Island Living

RCR Team

The Ritz-Carlton Residences is being introduced on Long Island, offering comfort and sophistication to the discerning customer. Here, we chat with James P. Retz of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty—about why the development is so spectacular:

Q: Tell us about The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Long Island, North Hills. What makes the development so impressive? 

A: Scott Rechler and his company, RXR Realty, saw an opportunity for a 17-acre site to become an entirely new way of living on Long Island. This new luxury construction will offer 24-hour concierge service and a 25,000-square-foot clubhouse featuring grand entertaining spaces, a bar and lounge for residents, a board room, a screening room, a billiard room, and a state-of-the-art fitness center with indoor and outdoor pools. This is the first Ritz-Carlton Residences to ever be built on Long Island.

Q: Who is the perfect buyer for The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Long Island, North Hills?

A: This is a private, gated community that is quite literally the first of its kind for Long Island. It could also possibly be the only Ritz-Carlton Residences ever built on Long Island. That represents a level of quality and service that resonates with affluent consumers—an alternative to maintaining a private residence or estate. Although many of the prospective buyers will be “local” (Long Islanders), the development will have broader appeal for the region due to its proximity to the Hamptons and New York City.

Q: What makes North Hills attractive as a community?

A: North Hills is a small village in Nassau County with a preponderance of gated communities. It’s an unusually convenient location based on its close proximity to highways, the LIRR, fine restaurants, culture, and nearby New York City.

Q: What makes Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty so perfect to represent The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Long Island, North Hills?

A: Since 1922, Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty has been a privately held, Long Island–based, residential brokerage firm. The firm is comprised of 26 offices and 700 sales associates with a global network spanning 60 countries and territories to maintain a dominant position for luxury sales.

Q: What are your expectations for The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Long Island, North Hills?

A: Combining impeccable brands like RXR Realty, The Ritz-Carlton, and Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty is a recipe for something very special. Coupled with a park-like setting, world-class service, and new luxury residential homes, you end up with a highly desirable private community just 20 minutes from Manhattan and 60 minutes from the Hamptons.

RXR Realty is, of course, one of the Tri-State’s leading real-estate companies, serving as one of the largest
owners, managers, and developers in the area with some $10 billion in assets.
