What some consider the largest cathedral in the world is one step closer to being designated a New York City landmark. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission held a public hearing on the designation of the Cathedral Church of St. John Divine, after the property was calendared in July.

The largest cathedral in the world is in Manhattan, but is not a city landmark. That could soon change. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to calendar a public hearing on the designation of the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine.
Back in April of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of the two-tower, 428-unit residential development at 400 West 113th Street, located on the Cathedral of St. John the Divine campus, in Morningside Heights. The Handel Architects-designed 15-story buildings topped out late last year, and now Tectonic has photos (h/t Curbed NY) of the completed towers. Dubbed Enclave at the Cathedral, all of the units will be rental apartments and will have access to over 10,000 square feet of amenity space. Amenities include landscaped outdoor decks and rooftop terraces, a 2,000-square-foot gym, an art gallery, and recreational/entertainment rooms. The Brodsky Organization is the developer and occupancy began on March 7.
Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed renderings for the two-towered, 15-story residential development at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue, adjacent to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, at 113th Street in Morningside Heights. Construction only began late last year on the 428-unit project, but structural construction and façade work are now complete, per Curbed. The buildings are being dubbed Enclave and Cathedral, and also go by the address of 400 West 113th Street. Brodsky Organization is the developer, Handel Architects is the architect, and completion is expected this fall.
Back in February of 2014, YIMBY reported on permits for the two residential towers rising next to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, on Amsterdam Avenue and 113th Street (with an official address of 1047 Amsterdam Avenue). An on-site rendering offered a glimpse at the design, and zoning diagrams showed the overall configuration, but YIMBY can now reveal the full project, designed by Handel Architects.
