Today marks the official topping out at Waterline Square, the three-tower, 2.2 million-square-feet development on the Upper West Side from GID Development Group. Construction on site has included four cranes and approximately 500 construction workers to reach this milestone. The development's three sites are the last available of the original 5-tower Riverside Center masterplan. Each of the three towers are designed by a different high profile architecture firm and will offer rentals at the lower floors and condos starting on floor 20.
All three towers will offer access to the Waterline Club, a combined 100,000 square feet of sports, leisure, and lifestyle amenities designed by the Rockwell Group. Amenities on offer will include an indoor tennis court, an indoor skate park, a 30-foot indoor rock climbing wall, a full basketball court, a three-lane lap pool, and studios for art, photography, recording. Also included in the development will be a three acre landscaped park designed by Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects at the center of the site.
Tower One, located at the southwest corner, is designed by Richard Meier Architects. Tower Two, at the northwest corner, is designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. Tower Three, adjacent to nearly completed One West End tower, is designed by Rafael Vinoly Architects.
