New York's Waterline Square skyscrapers climb in time-lapse movie
Watch towers by three starchitects rise in this time-lapse video, which shows that the Waterline Square development on Manhattan's Upper West Side is almost complete. The new movie condenses the project's three-year construction process into just 45 seconds of footage, so the cluster of residential skyscrapers beside the Hudson River appear to shoot out of the ground. Scheduled to welcome residents early 2019, the trio of buildings at Waterline Square will encompass 2.2 million square feet of floor space, housing 263 luxury residences between them.DEZEEN
