2 Waterline Square

Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates as Architects

Through creative planning and massing adjustments within the strict confines of a previously approved scheme, KPF achieved the client’s brief, weaving together 646 mixed-income units with plentiful outdoor space and amenities.

 

Sited between the Hudson River and the dense urban fabric of the Upper West Side, 2 Waterline Square accommodates a blend of luxury condominiums, market-rate rental apartments, and affordable housing units. At the ground level, it activates the neighborhood with a mix of retail and amenities, complementing the vitality of nearby Columbus Circle and Lincoln Center. Meanwhile, terraces and outdoor living spaces, in conjunction with the park at the center of the development, mediate between the density of the city and the openness of the riverfront.

 

To avoid an overwhelming “superblock” scale, the massing of the building is broken down. The two towers are connected by staggered volumes with multiple corners to bring light and air to all the units. The central lobby further breaks down the building’s scale by opening up the podium to take full advantage of the park to the south and pull additional daylight into the building.

 

Material Used:
Wausau: Architectural Terrace Door - TD4250
Overhead Door: Garage Door, non/insulated 
Schöck: Balcony Thermal Break - Brick Backwall/CMU
