The Manhattan neighborhood of Morningside Heights – bounded by Morningside Park to the east, 125th Street to the north, 110th Street to the south, and Riverside Park to the west – has been referred to as the “Academic Acropolis,” both for its proximity to prestigious colleges and universities, as well as its position at the summit of a hill. This location elevates the neighborhood from the rest of the city, while being close enough to Midtown to offer residents spectacular, unobstructed views of the skyline. One of the best places to enjoy these views is from the luxury NYC condominium tower, Claremont Hall.
Located on the campus of the historic Union Theological Seminary in Morningside Heights, Claremont Hall offers 165 one- to four-bedroom homes situated in an inspiring 41-story tower designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects. The stone and brick edifice reflects the Collegiate Gothic character of the original campus while adapting it to modern tastes. Claremont Hall was developed by Lendlease together with LMXD, an affiliate of L+M Development Partners, and Daiwa House Texas, Inc.
Claremont Hall’s homes feature enhanced ceilings, oversized windows and European white oak flooring. The state-of-the-art open kitchens are appointed with Bosch appliances, custom RAMSA-designed Italian cabinetry with a choice of a classic Bianco or modern Grigio finish, Calacatta Laza quartz countertops and chrome fixtures and hardware. The true standout residences are those select few that feature private outdoor terraces or charming loggias, many of which offer unmatched views of Midtown, Riverside Park and the Hudson River.
One such luxury residence is 32B, a premium two-bedroom, two-bathroom condominium with a powder room. The residence offers spectacular southern and eastern views and an intimate private terrace overlooking Columbia University, Riverside Park, and the Hudson River. Offering nearly 1,400 square feet of exquisitely detailed living space, the space is centered on a bright and sunny open living and dining room and a generous U-shaped kitchen. A separate bedroom wing includes the east-facing primary bedroom and a windowed ensuite bath with double vanity and glass-enclosed walk-in shower, as well as an oversized walk-in-closet. The spacious secondary bedroom features two exposures, one overlooking the residence’s private loggia.
One floor up, Residence 33A, a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home with a powder room, offers sweeping southern and western views over the Hudson River, Riverside and Central Park, and the iconic spire of Riverside Church. Boasting 1,710 square feet of finely detailed living space, this residence is centered on a corner living and dining room that adjoins both a covered outdoor loggia space and an extra-large windowed kitchen that can be elegantly concealed behind a solid wood pocket door. The west-facing primary bedroom suite incorporates a five-fixture bathroom with a deep soaking tub and large glass-enclosed walk-in shower, and a walk-in closet. Two additional bedrooms share this residence’s spectacular views over the Hudson River, as well as a conveniently located hall bath.
Pricing for these residences was recently revised, with Residence 32B now priced at $3,360,000 and Residence 33A priced at $4,225,000, with additional closing incentives available.
From its elevated position overlooking the Hudson River, Claremont Hall sits at the crown of the Upper West Side and integrates with the historic context of the Morningside Heights neighborhood, a community of brilliance and natural beauty. With easy access to many of the most significant parks in NYC – including Riverside Park, Sakura Park, Central Park and Morningside Park – residents have access to an abundance of outdoor activities, bike paths, dog runs and family-friendly activities. The area is home to several architectural icons including Riverside Church, General Grant National Memorial, the Peace Fountain and Columbia University, and is well-known for its rich culinary scene and arts and culture offerings.
