Luxury Meets Historic Heritage in Morningside Heights

  Last modified on November 29th, 2019

Designed by INC Architecture & Design with landscaping by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Vandewater is the first full-service, amenity-rich condo in the charming, academic community of Morningside Heights. You’ll want to take a look inside this ground-breaking project on 122nd St near Broadway, nestled between Columbia University’s main campus and the school’s new state-of-the-art Manhattanville campus. At 33-stories high, all the residences at Vandewater have remarkable light and dramatic city vistas from the top third of the building.

The Building: Inspiration Delivered

INC sought to create a fresh interpretation of the surrounding area’s old-world architecture. So they did – without sacrificing the modern conveniences and amenities which have been missing from the neighborhood.

The building facade is striking with intricate detailing inspired by Morningside Height’s mix of Art Deco, Neoclassical and neo-Gothic architecture.

Residents will enter through a private, landscaped, cobblestone motor court which leads into a light-filled lobby with a towering ceiling and grand sweeping spiral staircase.

This exciting new condo is perfectly situated – surrounded by Columbia University, Riverside Church, Riverside and Sakura Parks plus endless dining and shopping conveniences on Broadway.
