Construction Tour: Waterline Square

Facade installation is wrapping up at Waterline Square, the three-tower development on the Upper West Side from GID Development Group. 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. Sales for the one-to-five-bedroom condo units are underway.
