Project Statement:

Waterline Square is a 2.2 million-square-foot, three-tower, mixed-use residential development, designed by a world-renowned team of acclaimed architects and designers, including Richard Meier & Partners Architects, Viñoly Architects, and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF). The $2.3 billion, 1,131-unit development was built as a single project and is located on one of the last remaining waterfront sites in Manhattan, between West 59th and West 61st Streets along the Hudson River. Waterline Square is one of the single largest and highest-profile residential developments in New York City. Its three iconic mixed-use towers include condominium units, luxury rentals and mixed-income units over a mix of commercial including retail, restaurants and market spaces. The buildings are set upon a beautifully landscaped park spanning 2.6 acres with a stunning landscape, tree-lined groves, open grass areas, walking paths, a playground and fountains. The project features New York’s most impressive and comprehensive array of amenities, which span seven different facilities and over 2.1 million square feet. Complementing a collection of private amenity suites, with lounges, private dining and terraces, is the Waterline Club, an extraordinary 100,000 square feet of sport, fitness, wellness, spa, leisure, entertainment, creative, work, children and pet spaces designed by the Rockwell Group’s famed hospitality group. The central mission of the project was simple yet bold: to create the most innovative, comprehensive and cohesive luxury residential experience imaginable. The commitment to this ethos was complete from the entire development team. GID intentionally brought together award-winning, extraordinarily talented professionals who share a passion for design and uncompromising quality, combined with a personal understanding of living in New York City. Carefully crafted unit layouts, community-driven programming, state-of-the-art technology, breathtaking amenities, luxury hotel-level service and empathetic placemaking all come together at Waterline Square. The result is a truly rare gem in the realm of luxury residential mixed-use projects.
