Situated within the campus of Union Theological Seminary (UTS)—a globally respected, 180-year-old center of theological education in Manhattan’s Morningside Heights neighborhood—Claremont Hall is a 41-story, mixed-use condominium building designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects. Its 165 one- to four-bedroom residences vary in size from 700 to 2,765 square feet, with three yet-to-be-revealed penthouses that are expected to measure even larger. Claremont Hall will also provide more than 54,000 square feet of distinguished classrooms, academic offices, and faculty-designated apartments, packaged in a structure that targets U.S. Green Building Council standards for LEED Gold Certification.

Designed in collaboration with UTS to integrate with the broader campus and surrounding neighborhood, Claremont Hall showcases a stunning Collegiate Gothic architectural style that takes cues from the overall Gothic Revival character of the campus. Its base employs stonework that correlates the entry facade with the historic nature of the campus buildings, while contrasting bricks and custom precast exterior panels create a seamless merge with the overall campus design. Select residences are similarly envisioned to inspire, thanks to bay windows and terraces.
Perched above Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Morningside Heights is best known for its historic institutions and vintage feel. The neighborhood is home to Columbia University, the elite Ivy League school founded back in 1754, as well as Barnard College and the Manhattan School of Music. The neighborhood’s Romanesque and Gothic Revival-style Cathedral of Saint John the Divine began construction in 1892 and has become, among other things, a community mecca for art exhibitions. Morningside Park provides residents with 30 acres of public space spanning 13 blocks, while Riverside Park—regarded as one of Manhattan’s most spectacular waterfront parks—overlooks the Hudson River.
Iconic New York architecture firm Robert A.M. Stern Architects meticulously crafted residences via a refined palette that includes custom-designed solid wood entrance doors with polished chrome hardware and wide plank European white oak flooring. The open kitchens are appointed with appliances by Bosch and custom Italian cabinetry in a choice of either Classic Bianco or Modern Grigio lacquer, paired with Calacatta Laza marble countertops and ceramic tile backsplashes. Primary bathrooms feature walnut vanities designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects with stone countertops, Arabescato Cervaiole marble in a basket-weave pattern, and polished chrome fixtures by Kallista, while secondary bathrooms and powder rooms offer custom vanities and marble countertops. Oversized windows soar up to 10 feet, with sweeping views of the Hudson River and the surrounding neighborhood, and private outdoor terraces or loggias are included with select residences.
Claremont Hall’s impressive suite of amenities was designed in partnership with CetraRuddy Architects to merge “Old World” influences with contemporary design. There is a paneled library, a residents lounge with a terrace, a grand dining room, a makers room, a fitness center, and a children’s playroom. A stunning indoor pool boasts soaring Gothic ceilings with original chandeliers and beams. On-site parking is also available.
