Applications are now being accepted for 22 affordable apartments at the Waterline Square development on the Upper West Side. Stretching between West 59th Street and West 61st Streets, the three-tower complex is best known for the starchitects behind the high-rises: Richard Meier of One Waterline Square, Kohn Pedersen Fox of Two Waterline Square, and Rafael Viñoly of Three Waterline Square. New Yorkers earning 40 percent of the area median income can apply for the available $741/month one-bedrooms and $901/month two-bedrooms.

Developed by GID Development Group, the buildings offer a mix of rental and condo apartments, as well as a massive amenity club that measures 100,000 square feet and connects all three buildings.
Amenities, which may cost extra, include an indoor tennis court, a 25-meter lap pool and a kiddie pool, a full basketball court, a rock-climbing wall, a bowling alley, indoor gardening room, and more. The complex is also home to a new 2.6-acre waterfront park with a playground.
The rental apartments “boast condo-level features,” according to a previous press release, including floor-to-ceiling windows, high ceilings, and Bosch appliances. The units are available in four interior finishes: light, medium, dark, or white. Pricing for the rentals was revealed last year. Studios start at $3,938/month, one-bedrooms at $5,425/month, two-bedrooms at $8,625/month, three-bedrooms at $9,933/month, and four-bedrooms at $15,000/month.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until July 23, 2020. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Preference for 50 percent of the units will be given to residents of Manhattan Community Board 7. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
