Catching up with the rise of Waterline Square has been a pastime of skyline watchers since the project was announced. Now, CityRealty shares a recent Instagram post by designer Rafael Viñoly revealing the newly-installed final piece of the façade at Three Waterline Square, completing its multi-faceted crystal-planed exterior. On the inside, Three Waterline Square’s carefully expressed corners and gently sloping walls allow stunning panoramic river, park, and skyline views.

Waterline Square, a mega-development consisting of three luxury residential high-rises and measuring 2.2 million square feet, officially topped out this week, one of the most ambitious projects to hit the Upper West Side in decades. GID Development Group commissioned three major New York City architecture firms, Richard Meier & Partners, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates and Rafael Viñoly, to design One Waterline Square, Two Waterline Square and Three Waterline Square, respectively. The 263 condominiums of the development, located between West 59th Street and West 61st Street on the Hudson River, will commence closings in late 2018. There will also be 800 rental units available, with 20 percent of them below market rate. Hill West Architects serves as the executive architect on the project.

Rafael Viñoly’s tapering, pinstriped Three Waterline Square has topped out construction, CityRealty reports, and Richard Meier’s neighboring One Waterline Square is rapidly approaching its final 36-story height. Construction crews pitched an American flag atop the nearly-400-foot-tall Viñoly-designed building signifying that vertical construction is complete. 6sqft has previously reported on the trio of glassy residential towers known as Waterline Square, highlighting the starchitect designs and amazing amenities of the under-construction West Side additions.
