Lendlease has filed plans for a 42-story mixed-use building within Union Theological Seminary’s campus at 100 Claremont Avenue.

The plans, filed on December 28, call for a 466 ft. tall structure that provides 175 residential units. The building, being developed by Lendlease and its partner L+M Development Partners, will provide more than 250,000 s/f of residential space and 24,000 s/f for a community facility.

Riverside Church is 392', so this will be noticeably taller. The Vandewater is 385', but on a hill I believe. This one should still be the tallest thing around Morningside Heights.

A joint venture between multinational real estate investor and developer Lendlease and developer L+M Development Partners have nabbed $250 million in construction financing from Barings to finance their planned mixed-use project at the site of the Union Theological Seminary in Manhattan’s Morningside Heights neighborhood, according to an announcement today from the joint venture.
[...]
As part of their development efforts, Lendlease and L+M have also set aside $5 million to invest in the surrounding Morningside Heights area. The partnership is planning to provide $1.1 million over the next five years to support local community groups. The money will go towards a new fund called the Morningside Heights Community Fund — a partnership between the Morningside Height Community Coalition and the New York Community Trust to “identify and award grants to initiatives that make positive impacts” on the neighborhood, according to its website. The remaining $3.9 million will be doled out once the project is completed, and will “enable social justice programming to develop the next generation of community leaders,” according to information from the borrowers.
