Additionally, Vandewater boasts its own landscaped terrace and intimate private gardens by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, inspired by the cultivated natural designs of Frederick Law Olmsted, architect of Central Park.

One Prospect Park West

Perched on the northwest corner of Prospect Park, One Prospect Park West offers true park living, with 600 acres of green space just outside its doors. Originally built in 1925 by the Knights of Columbus, the historic building is being carefully renovated and converted by developer Sugar Hill Capital Partners into a rare new condominium overlooking Grand Army Plaza. The first residential building designed by Workstead, the renowned Brooklyn-based design studio, One Prospect Park West offers 64 residences with over 40 unique floor plans. Residences frame picturesque views of the New York City skyline and lush Prospect Park while placing residents mere minutes from the verdant urban oasis that provides respite from the busy city.

Waterline Square

Waterline Square is an iconic collection of three residential buildings along the Hudson River where Midtown meets the Upper West Side. Each of the three towers faces the beautiful Waterline Square Park, a lush oasis designed by Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects that serves as both a backyard and an oasis. Spanning nearly three acres, the park is complete with water features, lush plantings, walking paths and a playground, creating a verdant view and serene retreat.

No. 33 Park Row

No. 33 Park Row, the first residential project in New York City designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, overlooks lower Manhattan’s historic City Hall Park. Offering the rare privilege of fully preserved, unobstructed park views from every residence, No. 33 Park Row is an intimate collection of just 30 homes providing great personal privacy. The intimate scale of No. 33 Park Row is juxtaposed with the grand scale of its individual residences, which feature stunning wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the park.

No. 33 Park Row features Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners signature copper screen fins along the building’s exterior that evoke the iconic fins on the exterior of the Pompidou Centre in Paris and One Hyde Park in London. For No. 33 Park Row, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners introduced contemporary architectural elements that reference Downtown Manhattan’s industrial- era commercial buildings, including massive windows, decorative copper screen fins around balconies and terraces, and distinctive dark steel framing on the façade.
