The Union Theological Seminary is working to sell air rights to Lendlease and L+M Development Partners to create a 42-story tower in Morningside Heights. Robert A. M. Stern Architects is designing the new mixed-use building, which will stand 466 feet to its pinnacle, easily making it the tallest in the neighborhood. The project is part of a $125 million rehabilitation initiative which will also include much needed renovations to the Seminary’s 119-year old campus.
A new student residence is on the rise at 415 West 120th Street designed by architect Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel. Located in Morningside Heights, the property will rise 14 stories and contain 80 units for dedicated use by Columbia University.
Standing north of Columbia University at 543 West 122nd Street, behind the Jewish Theological Seminary, is the new residential tower dubbed “Vandewater”. Located in Morningside Heights, which was originally called Vandewater Heights, the new 385-foot-tall building will come with over 300,000 square feet of space, and 183 condominiums spread over 33 floors. SLCE Architects is the executive architect while Incorporated Architecture & Design is the designer for the project. Savanna is the project’s developer, while Halstead Property Development Marketing is handling sales.
