Construction is now almost fully complete on Vandewater, a 385-foot-tall, 33-story residential tower at 543 West 122nd Street in Morningside Heights. 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, the structure yields 183 condominiums with sales led by Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing. The property is bound by Broadway to the west, West 122nd Street to the south, West 123rd street to the north, and Amsterdam Avenue to the east.
The final component of the property awaiting completion is the landscaped courtyard outside of the main lobby. This portion of the site is still surrounded by tall metal scaffolding, sidewalk barriers, fencing, and wooden boards, though these should be disassembled in the coming weeks. For now, the entrance is only accessible via a narrow passageway that maneuvers between the unfinished portions of the sidewalk and plaza.
The tight grid of windows and intricately sculpted and recessed panels warmly shine in the afternoon sunlight, highlighting their Art Deco patterning.
Homes at Vandewater range from studios starting at $920,000 to four-bedroom residences going for $6 million. The property also contains 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. It also features 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 from the building is the 125th Street station, serviced by the 1 train, two blocks to the north. The sales gallery is now relocated to the building.
Closings have begun and Vandewater is slated for completion this year.
