Is it a a hair salon? A personal assistant? No, it’s a skate park.
Waterline Square, the five-acre mega-development on the Upper West Side, just announced that the project will be the first residential building to feature a skate park.
The indoor, multi-level half-pipe skate park (rendering above) is the first-ever conceived amenity of its kind of any NYC residential project.
Located within The Waterline Club, which is the shared amenities space designed by the Rockwell Group with over 100,000 s/f of sports, leisure and lifestyle offerings, the half-pipe skate park is nearly 42 feet long and four feet high.
For the daredevils and pros looking to catch some extra air, a mini ramp is situated directly next to the half-pipe and is up to 10 feet high.
Designed by SITE Design Group, whose credits include the BMX plaza at Stars and Stripes Park in Oklahoma and the Linda Vista Skatepark in San Diego, the skate park has open seating lounge area, a sound system with DJ deck and large screen TV.
Skateboards and helmets will be available for use, and the space will be open year-round for all residents.
Waterline Square is a complex of of three West Side condo towers developed by GID Development Group and designed by Richard Meier, Rafael Viñoly, and Kohn Peterson Fox.
