Curtain wall installation has begun on the lower floors of The Vandewater in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of New York City. The Vandewater was designed by Incorporated Architecture & Design with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, the new project is being developed by Savanna while Halstead Property Development Marketing is handling sales of the 183 condominiums. The 391-foot (119.1-meter) tall building is located at 543 West 122nd Street and will span over 300,000 square feet (27870.9 square meter), with 33 floors of new residential space.

Featured Buildings

The exterior stone façade is being assembled piece by piece. Each piece contains one tall window panel with a gradually indented and stepped frame of warm-colored stone. This gives each piece an added sense of depth and creates a visual play of light and shadow.

Prices for the units start at US$970,000 for studios, with the most expensive being a four-bedroom unit at US$6 million. The Vandewater will have substantial amenities including a cobblestone motor court and double-height lobby, 24-hour concierge service by Luxury Attaché, a fitness center with a yoga/pilates room, a 70-foot (21.3 meter) lap pool, a salon, a pet spa, a music room, a children’s playroom and private outdoor dining space, and two landscaped gardens designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates.

Occupancy is expected in Fall 2020.
