Waterline Square, a 2.2 million-square-foot, three-tower development in Manhattan, has reached the final phase of construction. GID Development Group celebrated the topping out of the building, closings are scheduled to begin at the end of 2018.
Located on a waterfront site in Manhattan, between W. 59th Street and W. 61st Street on the Hudson River, Waterline Square features 263 condominiums starting on or above the 20th floor. The three buildings were developed simultaneously and designed by three architects: One Waterline Square, designed by Richard Meier & Partners Architects, comprises 37 stories; Two Waterline Square by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is the highest building, featuring 38 stories; and Viñoly Architects-designed Three Waterline Square, which consists of 34 stories. Hill West Architects is the executive architect of the project.
The development consists of three- to five-bedroom units, featuring hand-picked materials, custom kitchen cabinetry, marble baths with custom-designed vanities, oversized windows and high ceilings. Waterline Square includes 100,000 square feet of amenity space, featuring sports, leisure and lifestyle amenities and a landscaped park. The Waterline Club, designed by the Rockwell Group, connects the three buildings and features amenities such as an indoor tennis court, 25-meter lap pool, spa, indoor soccer field, rock climbing wall, music and recording studio, and art studio.
“We have created something that is unmatched by any other development — with close proximity to both the water and green space — and Waterline Square has already changed the game in this coveted neighborhood. We look forward to welcoming our first buyers at the close of 2018,” said James Linsley, president of GID Development Group, in prepared remarks. Linsley discussed the details of the Waterline Square project in an interview with CPE and MHN.
