Work is wrapping up on Waterline Square, a three-tower residential complex from GID Development Group on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Situated along the Hudson River between West 59th Street, West 61st Street, and Freedom Place South, each building was designed by a prominent architectural firm: One Waterline Square by Richard Meier & Partners with interiors by Champalimaud; Two Waterline Square by Kohn Pedersen Fox with interiors by Yabu Pushelberg; and Three Waterline Square by Rafael Viñoly with interiors by Groves & Co. Hill West Architects served as the executive architect for the master plan.
Façade work is progressing on Seaport Residences, a 670-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 161 Maiden Lane in the Financial District. Formally addressed as One Seaport, the topped-out 60-story building is designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Fortis Property Group LLC and will yield 80 units. Groves & Co is serving as the interior designer for the 200,000-square-foot structure, and sales will be handled by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. Ray Builders is the current contractor for the project.
YIMBY stopped by 202 East 23rd Street in Kips Bay, the future site of a 14-story mixed-use building from Hill West Architects and SMA Equities. Recent photos from Tectonic show the state of progress at the lot, which is located at the southern corner of Third Avenue and East 23rd Street. Two vacant three-story buildings sit boarded up, awaiting the start of demolition.
Demolition work has stalled at 570 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn, the site of a proposed 550-foot-tall skyscraper designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Slate Property Group. Scaffolding and blue netting still shroud the main façade of the existing building, and it appears that little progress has been made since YIMBY’s January visit. As planned, the new development would yield a mixture of market-rate apartments, affordable housing, retail, and small-scale office space.
