Murder-suicide on Waterline Square construction site this morning.
I was right across the street as it was happening. Ugh.

Rafael Vinoly's Three Waterline Square Tops Out Construction

Rafael Vinoly's Three Waterline Square Tops Out Construction
Oct 12

Quote:
In seemingly record time, the 5-acre Waterline Square development has gone from empty pit to a full-fledged urban landscape.
Earlier this week we reported that Richard Meier’s One Waterline Square was nearing its final 36-story height. Now its neighboring sister
building, Three Waterline Square has topped out construction.




More info and images in the post here.

Walked by this tonight, this new area almost seems like a West Side Sutton Place, quite like this development.

Long-Awaited Waterline Square Towers Top Out On The Upper West Side







Quote:
The new towers are officially dubbed One, Two, and Three Waterline Square, and Hill West Architects is the executive architect for all three buildings, though each features a different design architect.

One Waterline Square has an address at 10 Riverside Boulevard, and permits were originally filed by Extell in 2015, before GID Development Group took over the site. It measures just shy of 530,000 square feet, and includes 288 units, and 1,370 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. At 36 floors and 429 feet to its rooftop, the building is the tallest of the bunch, and was designed by Richard Meier & Partners Architects.

Two Waterline Square is at 30 Riverside Boulevard, and features a two-towered development designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, with over 1.12 million square feet of space between the pair. The bulk of the area will be occupied by 656 units, though ground-floor retail will also be included. The pair rise 38 and 25 floors, and 397 and 245 feet each, respectively.

The last of the group is Three Waterline Square, designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects, which stands 34 floors and 391 feet to its parapet. With about 443,000 square feet of space, it is the smallest of the bunch, with only 244 units. There will also be 1,844 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, as well as 2,119 square feet of community facility space. Its official address is 639 West 59th Street.

Completion is anticipated for next year.

Just a waterfront view. It really is a mini-Hudson Yards.

Also behind it, to the right, CPT! At that angle, its going to obscure One57, the Tony Soprano of the 57th Street boom. One57 started the trend that has inhabited the street. Can see the lovely Roseland tower to the far right. One of the best facades out there, right next to Stienway and the future 9 Dekalb.

This would've been a phenomenal HY assemblage in the parallel universe I keep babbling on about; but with these changes:

1. Add 21 West End Avenue to the assemblage (if it's not included; but CTBUH says it is).

2. Take Bjarke's Pyramid, decrease the square-footage by half (Maybe...too thin?) and increase the height by a factor of 3 (see "woulda coulda shoulda" heights below).

3. Make this the centerpiece tower and bring up all the other towers by a factor of 2.

4. Keep the architecture!

So the final look would yield:

Pyramid (3x): 1,398'

21 West End (2x): 1,058'

RC #1: (2x): 956'
RC #3: (same): 912'

1WS: (same): 858'

2WS: (same): 794'
RC #4: (same) 786'
3WS: (same): 782'

What do you think?

21 West and the especially the pyramid wouldn't look good at that height. But the WS towers would. The only blunder with this development is the lack of height. The design would pull it off at 2x/3x the height. Or even something like this, just somewhat bulkier, would of been nice for HY Phase II.

Pyramids in general are really hard to pull off. It comes down to the location with them IMO. A design in the wrong area could spell disaster for the aesthetics of the area.
