Upper West Side's starchitect-designed Waterline Square is on the rise

All three buildings are now in various stages of construction

Via Field Condition

It’s been less than a year since the starchitect trio—Richard Meier and Partners Architects, Rafael Viñoly Architects, and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates—was tapped to design a large chunk of the former Riverside Center megaproject, and already the project has made significant progress.

The trio of architects are each designing a building at Waterline Square, as this GID Development-led project is known, and each of the three buildings are now in various stages of construction. Field Condition recently stopped by the construction site to see what’s going on with the development.

One Waterline Square

At One Waterline Square, the building being designed by Meier’s firm, the structure is now halfway to the top, according to Field Condition. Eventually it will stand 37-stories tall and feature interiors by Champalimaud.

Two Waterline Square.

Two Waterline Square will stand 38-stories tall, and is the largest of the three buildings. But right now, the KPF-designed building is less than a dozen floors above ground. Yabu Pushelberg has been roped in for the interiors here.

Three Waterline Square (in the center).

Finally, Viñoly’s Three Waterline Square is nearly halfway to the top, according to Field Condition. This building will rise to 34-stories and feature interiors by Groves & Co.

All three buildings will come with a mix of condos and rentals. So far we only have news on the condos: there will be 263 of them, and they will all start on the 20th floor and upward in each of the buildings. Another major aspect connecting all three buildings is the massive amenity package, The Waterline Club, spread out between the three buildings. A Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects-designed park will connect all three buildings on the outside.

Sales officially got underway in June this year with prices starting from $2 million, and construction is expected to wrap by the end of next year.
