Eight months since we last checked in at the site of the three-tower Waterline Square development in New York, and progress at the starchitect-designed development has reached a major milestone. Located on Riverside Boulevard, along the Hudson River in Midtown Manhattan, the 2.2 million square foot project by GID Development Group has now been completely enclosed, with work crews soon to move inside to finish off the interior.

Billed as a luxury development, the three towers will be home to just 263 units, all of which will be joined at ground level by the Waterline Club, a 90,000 square foot amenities suite, which will joined outdoors by a three-acre park complete with trees, grass, trails, a playground, and multiple water features. For retail options, there will be a 28,000 square foot market located in the base of Two Waterline Square.

One Waterline Square was deigned by Richard Meier & Partners Architects, and has been clad in a more or less smooth glass curtain wall. The tower is joined at the base by a multi-storey addition, which is clad in a mix of white spandrel and glass.

Two Waterline Square was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, and appears to have the largest footprint of the three, its mass spread outwards instead of vertically. The base of this tower will be occupied by the aforementioned market.

Three Waterline Square was deigned by Rafael Viñoly Architects, and represents the most visually daring of the three towers. Clad in a mix of dark-tinted glass and black spandrel, and featuring a series of sharp, angular setbacks, the third tower cuts a distinctive silhouette.
