Vandewater’s Façade Reaching Final Floors at 543 West 122nd Street in Morningside Heights

Vandewater, designed by Incorporated Architecture & Design and developed by Savanna

The façade for Vandewater is reaching the upper floors of the 33-story, 385-foot-tall reinforced concrete structure, in Morningside Heights. Located at 543 West 122nd Street, the residential building now towers over the surrounding neighborhood. The project is designed by INC Architecture & Design, with SLCE Architects serving as the executive architect. Savanna is the developer, and Halstead Development Marketing is handling sales for the 183 condominiums.

Other features include a fitness center with a quiet energy room, a 70-foot lap pool, a pet spa, a practice room, a children’s playroom, a private outdoor dining terrace, and landscaped gardens designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates.

Completion of Vandewater is expected next year.

  1. Thanks to Michael Young: I am not well-informed as the designer revealed. But I was able to distinguish whether tall or short, or whether it was very beautiful or the least beautiful. As you reported, I think the development orbit is always interesting.

  2. Blends right in.
