Construction is wrapping up on a trio of glassy residential towers known as Waterline Square, located on the five-acre waterfront site between West 59th and 61st Streets. Three Waterline Square, designed by Rafael Viñoly, got its multi-faceted crystal-planed exterior earlier this month. Richard Meier, on a leave of absence from his firm after accusations of sexual harassment, designed One Waterline Square, the 37-story building that also recently reached its pinnacle. Finally Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates‘ Two Waterline Square culminates at 38 stories. After the jump, check out a video showing the entire project rise in under 90 seconds.
The 2.2 million square foot mega-development represents the last remaining waterfront development sites to be completed on the Upper West Side. It’ll hold a total of 263 luxury condos among the three buildings, ranging from one to five bedrooms. Upper floor residences will have views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline, stretching down to the Statue of Liberty.
Rafael Viñoly’s tower was designed to resemble faceted crystals. Building amenities are located on the 22nd floor and include a 12-seat dining room and catering kitchen, lounge, media room, and a landscaped terrace.
Kohn Pedersen Fox’s Two Waterline Square is a twin-peaked building that is the largest of the bunch. 20 percent of the apartments within the development will be affordable. The building will also hold a 28,000-square-foot Cipriani food hall designed by London-based interior designer Martin Brudnizki.
Finally, Richard Meier’s One Waterline Square takes up a full city block. The building’s one- to five-bedroom residences, designed by Champalimaud, will boast high ceilings and large window banks.
A 2.6-acre park between the buildings will connect to the Riverside Park South Esplanade and feature fountains, manicured lawns, a playground, and water features. And all three buildings will have access to The Waterline Club, with 90,000 square feet of amenities that include a fitness center, a lap pool, spa area, playrooms, party rooms, a games lounge, a recording studio and performance spaces.
