New photos were recently unveiled of the amenity spaces and furnished model residences at Claremont Hall, in Manhattan’s Morningside Heights neighborhood. The 41-story condominium tower located at 100 Claremont Avenue and West 120th Street on the Union Theological Seminary campus is now complete and available for immediate occupancy. Developed by Lendlease, together with LMXD, an affiliate of L+M Development Partners, and Daiwa House Texas, Inc., Claremont Hall is designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA) with amenity interiors by CetraRuddy Architects.

Designed to integrate with the broader campus and surrounding neighborhood, Claremont Hall features Gothic stonework at its base. As the tower rises, the design transitions to incorporate setback masses and abstract detailing, in a distinctive facade of contrasting bricks and cast stone. Residents have unrivaled views of Riverside Park, Sakura Park, Central Park, and Morningside Park.

  1. Incredible building, and they did a great job intermingling the building with the Seminary. First ever luxury building in Morningside Heights.

    • wouldn’t the Vandewater tower on 122nd count as the first?

    • Isn’t the Vandewater (at 543 West 122nd Street) the first luxury building in Morningside Heights? The Vandewater topped off in 2018, and sales of the condos started in 2019.

    I feel they are having trouble selling units given their advertising and the multiple articles showing up on YIMBY. I absolutely love the building, but if I am going to pay that much I would probably live somewhere other than Morningside Heights.

    • yep it’s all about the location. I see the ads all the time. Too expensive for the area

      • 1.1 million for a huge new construction one bedroom in a full-service building is expensive?

        • If Claremont Hall is too expensive for Morningside Heights, then someone needs to tell the guy who paid $9,989,005 for a 4-bedroom, 3348 sq. ft. apt. (#PH41) in this building. Or the guy who paid $6,895,500 for a 4-bedroom, 2764 sq ft apt. (#38A) in this building.

      The website shows only 16 available units.

      • the Sponsor usually doesn’t sell all units at once. They usually hold some and list others unless they only have a few units left

    No one should have things scattered all over the floor, it is so beautiful that I want to preserve it in this new condition forever: Thanks.

  4. Looks beautiful, but too expensive for the location-there’s nothing in that neighborhood if you don’t have a student ID. (where is the closest restaurant, even?)

  5. Nice looking building but unfortunately situated in the wrong location. Apartment prices are way out of line given the remoteness of the surrounding area. Neighborhood services, ie. restaurants, supermarket or drug store are unexistent. Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me!

    • Not really. It is an only a few blocks from Columbia and all of Broadway, and also three blocks from the busy W125th Street commercial corridor. Some people may want the quiet Riverside Park setting. It’s like being on West End Ave or Riverside Drive.

  6. A horrfic insult to art and authencity (like having a swimming pool or gymp inside a historic builiding with Gothing physic. BUT, there is no other other practicabl option. It is a million timees better than pulling down the buildng and shoving a cookie box building it its place. So, yes, please DO repurpuse. I wished they had done the same to Penn Station instead of pulling it down to stick a rat hole its place.
