How was this building rated?

This 34-story tower at 639 West 59th Street is known as Three Waterline Square and has been designed by Rafael Vinoly, the architect of the sheer, 1,396-foot-tall, residential condominium tower at 432 Park Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets and Madison and Park Avenues that was the tallest in the Western Hemisphere when it was erected in 2015.

It is one of three towers on trapezoidal sites at the five-acre Waterline Square developed by General Investment and Development Companies (GID) and Henley Holding Company, a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi Development Authority, with a total of 1,1320 condominium and rental apartments and 20 percent of that total will be "affordable."  This tower will have 167 rental units and 47 condo units with each type having its own entrance,  Interiors by Groves & Co.

The other two towers in this complex have been designed, disparately, by Richard Meier & Partners and Kohn Pedersen Fox.  They are rather awkward in comparison with this tower, which is not pristine but at least dramatically interesting with its bold façades.

Hill West is the executive architect for the entire complex.

Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects have designed the center, 2.6-acre park that will connect to the Riverside Park South esplanade.
