Learn the Unique Story Behind the Iconic Waterline Square Development


Situated on five acres along the Hudson River waterfront between West 59th Street and West 61st Street, Waterline Square is an iconic luxury residential experience. Waterline Square is transforming the New York City skyline and completing one of the last remaining waterfront development sites on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, as well as one of the borough’s most important masterplans along Riverside Boulevard. Waterline Square creates a one-of-a-kind lifestyle experience by blending world-class architecture, well-designed homes, unparalleled amenities, a dynamic park space, and unique retail and restaurant offerings. 

The three residential buildings of Waterline Square are thoughtfully arranged around a park to unite the development while opening up the waterfront to the city, which seamlessly created an axis that connects the city grid to the adjacent Hudson River Greenway. Waterline Square is a gateway project and a transformational development that links the Upper West Side, Midtown West and the Hudson River together for the first time.

To achieve this vision, GID Development Group assembled an amazing collection of world-famous architects and designers who are not only recognized on a global scale, but are also based in New York and understand how to craft an authentic, compelling New York City neighborhood. With the expert architecture of Rafael Viñoly Architects, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, and Richard Meier & Partners Architects coupled with the interior design talents of Champalimaud Design, Yabu Pushelberg and Groves & Co., GID has created three buildings that each have their own identities, yet work together to create a beautiful and cohesive development. 

For the buildings of Waterline Square, each architecture firm took cues from the surroundings and embraced the overall vision for Waterline Square to exist as a cohesive development, while employing their individual architectural vision and talents to make each building unique and reflective of their design philosophy. The three buildings feature articulated glass facades and dynamic, faceted crowns that exist as distinct architectural gems yet also create a bold collective statement against the backdrop of the New York City skyline and the Hudson River. The buildings weave in gradient shades of white, silver, grey and black to create a striking composition with the sparkling Hudson River and lush park at the heart of the development. 

One Waterline Square, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier, commands a full city block with an undulating glass and metal façade. Elegantly proportioned residences are graced with high ceilings, enormous banks of windows and a rich selection of hand-selected materials available in either a white or natural finish palette. Champalimaud Design, the internationally renowned interior design firm known for five-star hotels, has designed the glamorous and chic interiors that perfectly complement Meier’s light-filled architecture.

Designed by the masters of glass towers, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, Two Waterline Square has created impressively scaled architecture that is accentuated by a series of cascading terraces at the top and a gracious porte-cochère arrival at ground level. High ceilings and oversized windows frame the remarkable water and skyline views, with interiors designed by famed hospitality firm Yabu Pushelberg. The bright interiors are enhanced by a rich selection of natural materials throughout, providing a truly refined sense of home.

Three Waterline Square, designed by lauded architecture firm Rafael Viñoly Architects, is adorned with a spectacular faceted and angled façade where residences are characterized by gently sloping exterior walls and surrounded by views of the water, park and New York skyline. With interiors by AD 100 designer Groves & Co., Three Waterline Square offers contemporary comfort that celebrates the captivating architecture.
