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.
Upper West Side
As the buildings in the Upper West Side continue to age, Brack Capital is filing plans to bring 720 West End Avenue into the 21st century. The proposal for the Landmark Preservation Commission would reconstruct interiors, enlarge the original structure upward by one story, which would be invisible to pedestrians, and fill in the lot beside it with an eight-story addition. The plan would bring over 120 new residences to the area, with design by Morris Adjmi Architects.
The latest Upper West Side tower designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill is sealing up. It has ten months since the 33-story residential building at 1865 Broadway topped out, and just now the façade has finally reached the top.
Construction of what may temporarily become the tallest skyscraper on the Upper West Side is poised to go vertical. As of yesterday, the building’s crane has arrived, and has been successfully installed for the soon-to-be 51-story 200 Amsterdam Avenue. Work has already reached the ground floor, with the foundation likely near completion. Concrete pouring for the first floor slab remains forthcoming. SJP Properties is responsible of the development.
Alchemy Properties, alongside Daishin Securities, successfully acquired the site of 378 West End Avenue for $158 million last week, which will eventually become the home of a ground-up 19 story condominium building on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It will be combined with a new 12-story structure, in conjunction with landmarks approvals, to be built at 260-262 West 78th Street, the former location of The Collegiate School.
