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.
GID Development Group has officially launched apartment leasing within Waterline Square, a five-acre development that includes a trio of distinct high-rise buildings and lush landscaping throughout. The $2.3 billion development is perched along the Hudson River on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and was designed by a world class team of architects including Rafael Viñoly, Kohn Pedersen Fox, and Richard Meier.
Located on a 32,365 square foot parcel along First Avenue between East 39th Street and East 40th Street, 685 First Avenue has officially launched leasing for its 408 units. With a 460-foot tall facade of pitch black glass facing the East River, the 43-story tower is one of the newest and tallest skyscrapers to be completed in Midtown’s Murray Hill. Sheldon Solow of Solow Building Company is the developer of the 800,000 square foot project, while Richard Meier & Partners Architects is the designer. Leasing and move-ins are now underway, with units marketed by Citi Habitats New Developments.
Back in January of 2017, construction at 685 First Avenue had just reached the fifth floor. In just under two years, the tower and façade have topped out, sales have launched, and completion is expected by the end of the year. Sheldon Solow’s Solow Building Company is developing the 42-story minimalist Murray Hill skyscraper.
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.
