In less than 60 seconds, you can watch the NYC skyline change right before your eyes. A brand-new time-lapse video showcases the rise of Waterline Square, the transformative luxury residential development on the Upper West Side designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates and Richard Meier & Partners Architects. This new video shows the full construction and completion of all three towers and the development’s nearly-three-acre public park.
Situated along Riverside Boulevard from West 59th to 61st Streets, the 2.2 million square foot, five-acre mega-development represents one of the last remaining waterfront development sites to be completed on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. One Waterline Square by Richard Meier & Partners Architects is 37 stories, Two Waterline Square by KPF is 38 stories, and Three Waterline Square by Rafael Viñoly Architects is 34 stories.
Waterline Square features a mix of condo and rental residences that provide beautiful city, river and water views, 100,000 square feet of best-in-class sports, leisure, and lifestyle amenities designed by Rockwell Group, and a beautifully landscaped park by Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects.
The park, which was revealed this fall and has been programmed with socially-distant events for residents and the surrounding community, includes more than 200 trees of 20 different species, 65 percent of which are native to New York. Open to the public, the park unifies the buildings of Waterline Square while connecting the nearby waterfront space to the surrounding neighborhood. Construction on Waterline Square began in 2015.
