Late last fall, GID Development revealed the dream team of starchitects in charge of the residential buildings for Waterline Square, one of the last new development enclaves on the otherwise maxed-out Hudson River waterfront on the Upper West Side. The lineup: Richard Meier and Partners Architects, Rafael Viñoly Architects, and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, each responsible for a single glassy tower.
With the first of those condos slated to hit the market sometime this spring, GID has just revealed the equally star-studded roster of interior designers on the project: Champalimaud, Yabu Pushelberg, and Groves & Co. will bring their respective expertise to the development’s three buildings.
Each of the interiors experts will partner with one of the architects, and bring a different sensibility to their buildings. (They will, of course, be linked by the fact that they’ll be very fancy.) The three uber-designer buildings will be a mix of condominiums (on the upper levels) and rentals (beneath) ranging from one- to five-bedrooms.
Richard Meier’s One Waterline Square will feature white and “natural toned” interiors by Champalimaud, designed, per the release, to “marry the precision of Meier’s exterior with great warmth.” Or at least, as great as warmth can be in an angular tower made of glass.
Next door at KPF’s building, Two Waterline Square (are you sensing a pattern?), by boutique hotel and hospitality duo Yabu Pushelberg is similarly offering buyers a choice of palettes — light or dark — as well as an abundance of cascading terraces, a dramatic lobby, and, based on the latest renderings, a very marbled kitchen.
Finally, at Rafael Viñoly’s Three Waterline Square, Groves & Co. are focused on “showcas[ing] indulgent materials with a fresh attitude.” Here, the choice is between oak or ash.
