Façade installation is coming to an end for Waterline Square, a five-acre project overlooking the Hudson River. The three towers are being constructed simultaneously so that residents will have the benefit of moving into a finished mini-neighborhood inside the Upper West Side. Once complete, a lush public space will unite the residential buildings and retail center, containing several eateries. GID Development Group is responsible for the venture.
400 West 61st Street
Back in early September, YIMBY reported on progress at Waterline Square, on the southern edge of the Upper West Side. Now, the trio of residential high-rises has officially topped-out, and the latest photos show that the former chasm of urbanity is rapidly transforming into an attractive component of the neighborhood at large.
General Investment & Development Companies (GID) is rebranding their three-tower mixed-use development — between West 59th and 61st streets and Freedom Place South and Riverside Boulevard, in Lincoln Square (which is technically south of the Upper West Side) — as Waterline Square. Updated renderings have been released of the towers, per Curbed NY, each of which has been designed by different architects.
YIMBY recently brought you renderings of proposals for Building 1 of Riverside Center by Arquitectonica, and permits were subsequently filed earlier this month. Now, we have the reveal for the project, which will be designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox. It sits on the northwestern corner of the greater Riverside Center development, next to West 61st Street and the West Side Highway.
Last week, YIMBY revealed tentative renderings for Building 1 at Riverside Center, and now plans have been filed for a third, 37-story tower in the five-building megaproject, at 400 West 61st Street.
