Waterline Square (GID Development) Waterline Square (GID Development)
Early in the construction process, the Waterline Square development on the cusp of Midtown West and the Upper West Side was named the fastest-selling new development of 2017. Years have passed and the first residents have moved in, but the excitement has yet to fade - Two Waterline Square was one of the ten best-selling condos of the first quarter of 2021. Below, we explore the buildings, amenities, location, and other aspects of life at Waterline Square.



1. Waterline Square presents an unprecedented collaboration of architects and interior designers

Waterline-Square-01 Waterline Square via GID Development Group
Waterline Square is perhaps best known for its impeccable design credentials both inside and out. One Waterline Square was designed by Pritzker Prize laureate Richard Meier and features interiors by Champalimaud Design; Two Waterline Square features a facade by Kohn Pedersen Fox and interiors by Yabu Pushelberg; Three Waterline Square was designed by Rafael Vinoly Architects and has interiors by Groves & Co.
The exterior and interior architecture provided outstanding bones for a new collection of model units curated by interior designers West Chin, Santopietro Interiors, and Minotti. The homes play off the buildings’ sloping architecture, and thoughtfully curated pieces like custom wall coverings, geometric chandeliers, and custom furniture pieces complement the sweeping views rather than compete with them.

2. Apartments present a rare chance at an Upper West Side sponsor unit

While a luxury building boomlet has taken hold in this part of the Upper West Side, it has reached a point where sponsor unit condos in this neighborhood are few and far between. A notable exception may be found at Waterline Square. Current availabilities start at $2.275 million for one-bedrooms, $3.14 million for two-bedrooms, $4.8 million for three-bedrooms, and $12.5 million for four-bedrooms. A penthouse with a private terrace featuring an outdoor kitchen and hot tub is also on the market for $17.25 million.

3. A coveted 421-A tax abatement is in effect

New York’s 421a tax exemption program came to an end at the beginning of January 2016, but it has not been forgotten: Several of the developments that secured an exemption have recently completed construction, and Waterline Square is among them. A 20-year tax abatement is in effect.

4. The architecturally adventurous towers are underscored by state-of-the-art infrastructure

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, buildings all over New York scrambled to install MERV air filters. However, Waterline Square was well ahead of things - the development had top-of-the-line MERV-13 and MERV-14 filters installed in the apartments and common spaces from the beginning. Waterline Square also features a sub-micron water filtration system.

5. Waterline Square is home to a new public park

The three towers of Waterline Park are connected by a lushly landscaped 2.6-acre public park designed by Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects. Features include manicured lawns, walking paths, a fully equipped children’s playground, and interactive water feature. Developers have grand plans for yoga, fitness classes, and musical performances in the park.

7. Waterline Square is a gourmand's paradise

Early in the Waterline Square design process, it was announced that the development would be home to Harry’s Table, the first-ever Cipriani food hall featuring a full-service restaurant and bar, coffee bar, gelato and pastry shop, pasta lab, fish counter, butcher’s counter, and food market. Since then, Waterline Square would welcome an Empellon taqueria outpost and Somm Wine & Spirits, a sommelier-founded wine shop. Residents have access to priority reservations and room service-style delivery of market order at Harry's Table. Somm Wine & Spirits offered virtual wine-related events when the city was on lockdown, and will offer consultations and on-demand wine delivery to Waterline Square apartments and amenity space.

8. It is in a prime Upper West Side location

Waterline Square is close to such Upper West Side attractions as Lincoln Center, Central Park, the American Museum of Natural History, and the shops, dining, and transportation at Columbus Circle. A Morton Williams supermarket opened down the street in summer 2018, and the development is also close to Hudson River Park and Mt. Sinai West.

9. It is in close proximity to top schools

A new Collegiate School building has risen next door to Waterline Square. The partially curved glass building was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, designers of Two Waterline Square, and offers ten additional classrooms, expanded dining and recreational spaces, a full-floor science center, a digital arts lab, a black box theater, and two gyms. Collegiate School is just for boys, but Waterline Square is also close to West End Secondary School, Manhattan/Hunter Science High School, Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, and Professional Children's School.

10. Waterline Square is the final phase of the Riverside South master plan

Waterline Square is the final phase of the Riverside South master plan, which was devised to transform a stretch of land alongside the Hudson River from West 59th to 72nd Streets that was once home to a freight rail yard. Waterline Square rose on the southernmost plot of land; the condos and rentals in the northernmost section were once known as Trump Place (the name has since been removed); and Extell used the space in between to build luxury condos The Avery, The Rushmore, The Aldyn, and One Riverside Park.
