The exterior of Vandewater appears complete while work continues inside the 33-story residential tower at 543 West 122nd Street in Morningside Heights. The 385-foot-tall structure is designed by INC Architecture & Design and developed by Savanna, with SLCE Architects as the executive architect and Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc. as the landscape architect. Halstead Development Marketing is handling sales for the 183 condominiums.
Recent photos from Tectonic show the building fully clad in its Art Deco-inspired curtain wall that harkens back to the golden era of New York skyscrapers. The site is located between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue and is a close walk to Riverside Church and Riverside Park. The property is also a short distance from Columbia University and the Cathedral of St. John The Divine, both of which are located to the south.
The homes range from studios starting at $920,000 to four-bedroom residences for $6 million. Vandewater will also yield 24,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor residential amenities that include a cobblestone motor court, a 24-hour attended lobby, concierge service by Luxury Attache, a salon, great room, and club room. Other features include a fitness center curated by The Wright Fit with a quiet energy room, a 70-foot-long lap pool, a pet spa, a practice room, a children’s playroom, a private outdoor dining terrace, and landscaped gardens. The closest subway station from the property is the 125th Street station, serviced by the 1 train, two blocks to the north.
YIMBY last reported that closings are expected to occur this summer, while total completion is expected in early 2021.
