Waterline Square’s trio of towers are finally looking like their renderings. Aside from the construction hoist and a few odd windows, each building has its façade fully installed from the ground up. Once complete, the nearly 1,200-unit project will span five acres, and is being marketed as an effective mini-neighborhood enclave within the Upper West Side, with its own open park and retail market. GID Development Group is responsible for the project.

The 36-story One Waterline Square stands 429 feet tall, making it the tallest of the three. It yields nearly 530,000 square feet, which will be used to create 288 apartments. Richard Meier & Partners Architects, now led by Bernhard Karpf, is responsible for the design.

Kohn Pedersen Fox is responsible for the design of Two Waterline Square. The 25-story building rises 397 feet above ground to its peak, and with an enormous 1.12 million square foot capacity, it is the largest tower of the complex. It will add 656 apartments to the neighborhood.

Three Waterline Square is by every metric the smallest of the trio. It rises 391 feet, yields 443,000 square feet, and creates just 244 apartments. That said, the design by Rafael Viñoly is arguably the most interesting and inventive of the bunch.

Residents of all three buildings will share varying levels of access to over 100,000 square feet of amenities space, including an indoor tennis court, a climbing wall, half-pipe skate park, basketball court, indoor soccer field, among others. 28,000 square feet of retail will be made available to the public on site.
