Ginsburg Development Celebrates Grand Opening of the Fort Hill Apartments in Peekskill

Ginsburg Development Companies (GDC), the Hudson Valley region’s leading developer of resort-style luxury rentals, joined with Peekskill and Westchester County officials on September 12th for the Grand Opening of GDC’s latest luxury development – Fort Hill Apartments at The Abbey Inn.

Perched on a wooded hillside overlooking the Hudson River Highlands, Fort Hill is named for a former lookout post of George Washington’s army during the Revolutionary War.  In the late 1800’s this historic property became the home of the Sisters of Saint Mary, an Episcopal order.

The $64.5 million mixed-use project is transforming a former convent property into a resort enclave featuring 178 one- two- and three-bedroom rental apartments as well as a 42-room inn with spa, event hall and restaurant with outdoor dining overlooking the Hudson. The inn is currently under construction in the former convent and chapel.

“We congratulate BCW member Martin Ginsburg and Ginsburg Development on the opening of these new luxury apartments and for their role in the revitalization of the City of Peekskill,’’ said Marsha Gordon. “Peekskill is fast becoming a hot location to live work and play.’’

The Fort Hill Apartments is conveniently located near the intersection of Route 9 and Route 6 and is a short drive to downtown Peekskill which is undergoing a revival with new restaurants and shops. For more information, visit the leasing office open seven days a week from 10 am to 6 pm, or call (914) 930-8567. Appointments can also be made online at Currently, one month’s free rent is being offered as a Grand Opening Special.

“GDC’s brand promise to our residents is ‘Come home to vacation’. At the Abbey at Fort Hill we will offer a luxury apartment lifestyle as part of a unique mountaintop resort. Fort Hill is only an hour from Grand Central but feels a world away,” said GDC Principal Martin Ginsburg.

Fort Hill is the second major residential project to open in Peekskill in the past two months. In July, GDC opened Gateway Townhomes on Main Street in downtown Peekskill.
