American firms Rafael Viñoly Architects, Richard Meier & Partners, and Kohn Pedersen Fox have conceived a trio of high-end residential buildings that will overlook New York’s Hudson River. Encompassing nearly five acres (two hectares), the Waterline Square project is rising on one of the last undeveloped waterfront sites in Manhattan’s Upper West Side district. The buildings will house a mix of rental apartments and luxury condominiums.
Located on Riverside Boulevard, between West 59th and 61st Streets, the towers are just a few blocks north of Via 57 West, the “courtscraper” by Bjarke Ingels Group that opened earlier this year.
“The glassy towers complement one another in their articulated facades, outdoor spaces and faceted crowns, and collectively create a bold architectural statement set against the backdrop of the New York City skyline,” the team said.
The residential towers are oriented around a three-acre (1.2 hectare) park that “gestures” toward the nearby Riverside Park and Hudson River Park, which stretch along the waterway separating Manhattan from New Jersey.
