The Collegiate Gothic architectural style of the tower takes cues from the Gothic Revival character of UTS, with a more literal use of stonework at the base that seamlessly connects the entry facade with the surrounding historic campus buildings.
This past June, Lendlease, together with LMXD, an affiliate of L+M Development Partners, and Daiwa House Texas, Inc. launched sales at Claremont Hall, a new 41-story mixed-use condominium designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects and situated within the Union Theological Seminary (UTS) campus in the historic neighborhood of Morningside Heights.
The tower, located at 100 Claremont Avenue at the corner of West 120th Street, was designed in a Collegiate Gothic architectural style, so as to integrate it with its surrounding campus.
Residents will have unparalleled access to the rich culture and academic community of the broader Morningside Heights neighborhood, while the building will provide them with sweeping views of Central and Riverside Parks, the Hudson River, and Midtown Manhattan.
A painterly mix of contrasting bricks and custom precast panels on the exterior allows Claremont Hall to seamlessly integrate with the visual texture of its surroundings.
RAMSA designed Claremont Hall in collaboration with UTS to integrate with the broader campus and surrounding neighborhood.
Condominium residences range from one-to-four bedrooms (700 to 2,765 square feet) and begin at $1.2 million.
Bay windows distinguish select residences by drawing in more natural light while adding a sense of expansiveness to the living spaces and enhancing views.
The homes — some of which come with private terraces — feature sweeping park and river views, tall ceilings, oversized windows, European white oak flooring, and state-of-the-art open kitchens appointed with Bosch appliances.
Generous ceiling heights up to ten feet shed light on the living room’s comfortable elegance. Select residences feature Gothic windows inspired by the classic pointed arch of the Seminary’s double-lancet window.
Oversized windows in each residence provide abundant light to elegant living rooms with sweeping open layouts.
With open sunrise or sunset views, generously proportioned bedrooms are the perfect place to start the day.
Sophisticated secondary baths feature custom Italian vanities with Grigio Toscana stone countertops, Bianco Carrara marble flooring, soaking tubs and polished chrome fixtures and hardware.
Designed by RAMSA, the kitchens feature custom Italian cabinetry complemented by Calacatta Laza quartz countertops and a fully integrated Bosch appliance package, establishing an elevated benchmark for the comforts of home. Cabinetry is available in a classic Bianco or modern Grigio finish.
The amenities, designed in partnership with CetraRuddy Architects, offer residents the perfect mix of old world design and modern luxury. These amenities include a wood-paneled library, grand dining room, children’s playroom, a creative maker’s room, resident lounge with a terrace, fitness center, onsite parking and a stunning indoor pool — the former refectory for seminary students and faculty — with Gothic ceilings, original chandeliers and ceiling beams.
A stunning indoor pool – the former refectory for seminary students and faculty – includes soaring Gothic ceilings and original chandeliers and ceiling beams that provide a serene retreat for residents year-round.
The curated mix of amenities includes a fitness center.
The fantastical Little Castle children’s playroom is a merry space for children to imagine, play, and interact.
Above the treetops, the sunny Parkview Lounge and Terrace is a place to host guests for a private outdoor gathering.
The Dining Hall is complete with a pantry for catering and chef services. In the Library, residents can access leatherbound editions of all the classics that make up Columbia’s famous ‘Core Curriculum.’
The Study provides an intimate setting to extemporize, socialize or take care of business, evoking the fireside ambiance of a classic private club.
The spacious entrance lobby welcomes residents and visitors alike in high style. This double-height room is generously and carefully designed with Gothic Revival detail and illuminated by a dramatic volumetric chandelier inspired by fixtures found on the existing Union campus.
Once fully constructed, Claremont Hall will also provide approximately 54,000 square feet of modern classrooms, academic offices and faculty-designated apartments.
