Massive luxury condo tower is rising from this Manhattan church campus

Lord, bless this home.

A project 40 years in the making is finally coming to fruition within a one-of-a-kind development site in Manhattan’s Morningside Heights.

This month, sales launch at Claremont Hall, a 354,000-square-foot, 41-story, 460-foot-tall mixed-use development, which will primarily house luxury condos (pre-sales are already underway).

The tower’s 165 residences will occupy floors 10 through 41, with a mix of one- to four-bedrooms, priced from $1 million to $6.5 million.

Additionally, three penthouses will top the project, and pricing for those units has not yet been released. Who says you need to store up all your treasures in heaven?

All that in itself would make Claremont Hall one of the most significant towers ever to come to the neighborhood on the northwest corner of Manhattan anchored by low-rise Columbia University. But it’s the developer’s collaboration with the Union Theological Seminary — a theological graduate school founded in 1836, the oldest independent seminary in the United States — that makes it stand out.

In fact, the building is being constructed at the northern end of the school’s massive courtyard that fronts Claremont Avenue.
