Established in 1974.
Included in the Municipal Art Society’s Watch List of Future Landmarks due to its unique architecture, Waterside Plaza is built over 2,000 concrete pilings going down 80 feet into the bed of New York’s East River, this complex of 1,470 apartments can be described as a self-contained residential island. In addition to apartments, the complex contains offices, retail spaces and parking garages concealed beneath a landscaped plaza. The pinwheel plan of the towers and their stepped and faceted profiles gives apartment dwellers unparalleled river views. Sculptural forms, the texture of large scale brick and concrete, greenery and views make Waterside an urban experience that transcends typical residential settings. A network of riverside pedestrian walks and plaza reinforces the drama of location and provides ample opportunity for community life. Steps lead from the plaza to the river’s edge and a pedestrian bridge spans the FDR Drive to 25th Street.
