View over Pétion-Ville, Haiti.
Pétion-Ville (sometimes written as Pétionville) is a commune and a suburb of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in the hills east and separate from the city itself on the northern hills of the Massif de la Selle. Founded in 1831 by then president Jean-Pierre Boyer, it was named after Alexandre Sabès Pétion (1770–1818), the Haitian general and president later recognized as one of the country's four founding fathers. The district is primarily a residential and touristic area. It held a population of 283,052 at the 2003 Census, which was officially estimated to have reached 376,834 in 2015. Many diplomats, foreign businessmen, and a large number of wealthy citizens do business and reside in Pétion-Ville.
Despite the distance from the capital and the general affluence of the district, the lack of administrative enforcement has led to the formation of shantytowns on the outer edges of the district, as poor locals migrate upward and have settled there in search of job opportunities.

The last major vacant parcel on the Upper West Side is no longer, as the three towers of Waterline Square have now officially topped-out! Designed by Rafael Viñoly, Richard Meier, and Kohn Pedersen Fox, the trio of residential towers completes the southern edge of the neighborhood. The site has sat vacant since the 1980s, when it was originally supposed to yield Donald Trump's "Television City," which would have resulted in New York's tallest building. While that went unrealized, the final result is still impressive, and attractive, yielding approximately 2,000 residential units.

It’s quite different from what I usually post here, but well, I’m so excited I have to share it ❤️ Today I’ve delivered my final architectural project. I was working on it for the last year and I can’t believe it’s done now! I still have some exams to go, but the worst part is over 🙏
I also owe a big shoutout to @sergioyllana, who’s the best boyfriend ever and helped me to survive this madness. I couldn’t have done it without your support ❤️
