Slightly north of Hudson Yards, along the West Side of Manhattan, a new community is being built adjacent to the Hudson River called Waterline Square. This new mega-project by GID Development will be located between 59th and 60th Streets on the cusp of the Upper West Side, and will be home to, among other things, three Starchitect-designed residential towers. We have written about the importance of Starchitects before, and with 3 iconic architects designing a project together, we anticipate Waterline Square to be a big game changer in the area! Waterline Square will be a complete waterfront community complete with residential living, amenities, and retail.
The 3 residential towers will be positioned around a new 2.6-acre park. This lush park will feature cascading water features, a flowering meadow, and a fully equipped children’s playground. This new outdoor space will really be the anchor of the overall project. Residences of the towers will begin on floor 20 above, and all buildings will have access to The Waterline Club, a state of the art facility that will contain over 100,000 square feet of amenities.
One Waterline Square
One Waterline Square is designed by Pritzker Prize winner Richard Meier and will take up an entire city block with a coveted waterfront location. Residences of One Waterline Square will be graced with high ceilings, large banks of window offering homes amble light, and handpicked materials throughout.
Champalimaud Design has been tasked with designing the interiors of One Waterline. The design studio has concepted some of the most luxurious interiors around the world from private residences to hotels. Kitchens will be done in the finest materials while master baths will feature book-matched marble slabs.
In addition to the Waterline Club, residents will have access to a private suite of amenities for the tower also designed by Champalimaud.
Two Waterline Square
With a design accentuated by a series of ascending, set-back terraces atop the building, Two Waterline makes a striking statement at Waterline Square. Designed by John Pedersen Fox, who is known for glass towers that punctuate skyline, this building makes no exception to this rule. The base of the building will be home to a porte-cochere to welcome residents home.
Yabu Pushelberg will be spearheading interior design at Two Waterline Square. The firm has over 35 years of experience designing interiors throughout the world. For this project, homes are designed around the floor-to-ceiling windows that allow the homes to take advantage of the building’s waterfront setting. Yabu Pushelberg has selected natural materials to use throughout such as kitchens done in chic and modern white marble with warm wood accents and white lacquer cabinets.
Three Waterline Square
The architect behind 432 Park Avenue, a building that captivated the world, is bring a design to Waterline Square. His building, Three Waterline, will be characterized by a diamond crown design atop the building. Residences are characterized by corners and gently sloping exterior walls that aim to capitalize on views in every direction.
The building will face directly onto the newly built park at the base, offering residents a Park arrival into the stunning lobby.
