Robert A.M. Stern Architects has revealed renderings for a new student residence hall that is set to break ground this year in Morningside Heights, Manhattan. Located at 171 Claremont Avenue, the project is being developed by non-profit firm International House New York and will replace a single-story garage structure with eight floors of graduate student housing.
Construction is nearing completion on Vandewater, a 33-story, 385-foot-tall residential tower in Morningside Heights. Located at 543 West 122nd Street, the project is designed by INC Architecture & Design and being developed by Savanna. SLCE Architects is the executive architect, Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc. is the landscape architect, and Halstead Development Marketing is handling sales for the 183 condominiums.
Sales have launched at Eleven Hancock, a ground-up condominium building in Harlem. Located at 11 Hancock Place between Morningside Avenue and West 124th Street, the 12-story, 130,000-square-foot building will comprise 71 studio, one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom residences, about half of which will have private outdoor space. Nortco Development is responsible for the project, Issac & Stern for the design, and Lemay + Escobar for the interiors. The property is situated one block to the south of the 125th Street subway station, serviced by the A, B, C, and D trains, and is near the northeast corner of Morningside Park.
Today, YIMBY has new photographs of the rising facade for Vandewater, in Morningside Heights. The building is located at 543 West 122nd Street, and is now the tallest structure in the immediate vicinity. The ground-up reinforced concrete tower already topped out at 33 stories, and now stands 385 feet above its Upper Manhattan surrounds. The residential condominium project was designed by INC Architecture & Design, and SLCE Architects is serving as the executive architect. Savanna is the developer, and Halstead Property Development Marketing is in charge of handling sales for the 183 condominiums.
This week New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission will consider proposals to help preserve and rehabilitate the massive, vaulted dome ceiling of The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine. If approved, the structure’s existing granite dome would be encased by a bronze-hued copper enclosure.
