New Rendering Revealed for RAMSA’s 42-Story Tower Planned at 3041 Broadway in Morningside Heights

The first official rendering surfaced in the YIMBY Forums of the 42-story mixed-use condominium building coming to 3041 Broadway in Morningside Heights. Also known as 100 Claremont Avenue, the tower is designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects and will contain a mix of private residences and institutional space that includes offices, faculty housing, and classrooms. Located between West 120th and 122nd Streets, the new structure will rise adjacent to the historic Union Theological Seminary complex. 3041 Broadway is being developed by L&M Development Partners and Lendlease, with SLCE Architects as the architect of record.

The rendering reveals a mostly uniform exterior with several setbacks near the top stories for what appears to be private terraces. There are also a few balconies along the corners of the tower’s upper floors. The building looks to be clad in the light-colored limestone that has become a signature of the architect’s style. Given the height of the structure, residents will have views of the George Washington Bridge to the north, the Hudson River to the west, and the Midtown skyline to the south.

The warm façade blends in nicely with the towers of the seminary next door. The image does not show what the podium will look like, but we can presume it will receive a similar exterior treatment.

The new 350,000-square-foot building uses air rights purchased from the seminary, which will own the office space, faculty housing, and classrooms. The condos will be sold by Lendlease and L+M.

As YIMBY reported, demolition began last October on the site.

    This photo is used often so that it does NOT show how the tower actually blocks the Riverside Church Tower from most locations on Broadway. It’s a travesty that this could be allowed to be built, to block one of the most beautiful structure in our city. Come and see it while you still can.

  2. Even the best of our architects can become overly predictable.

      I don’t hate predictability. If an architect’s style is fantastic, it isn’t a bad thing, IMO. Certain architects, on the other hand….

    How did this completely inappropriate and neighborhood-blighting thing ever come to be approved? It will block sunlight all year long for some neighbors and limit it for all, damage the health of our local historic Sakura Park, completely dwarf the famous landmarks of our district, and lead to increased insufficiency of our public transportation. The height of this building is useful only for those who will pocket the profit.

    • Welxome to the problems of lower manhattan residents who remwmbered low rises.

      It was a no brainer. The church sells land for tens of million and geta free hifh end houaing foe monks. Not a bad deal?

      Pity the neoghbors who will see reasonable rent rises. And too many of those neighboring buildings r rent regulated. None of those tenants would dare move.

  4. Nikolai: I don’t find Candela’s buildings predictably boring, in fact, I wish there were many more of them. I feel the same way about RAMS buildings.

  5. Too tall, where’s the contextual scale to the neighborhood? It’s just like the two eyesores on 100th and Broadway, but with fancier cladding. The city should stop this and force contextual zoning in all neighborhoods.

    • If u had context scale allovwr there would be far fewer skyscrapers.

      That hood is composed of prewars many no higher than 8 floors.

      An image that costs of construction doesnt allow in 2020.

  6. 42 stories above W72nd St? Completely out of character for the neighborhood, really appalling. You can expect a lot of push-back from our community.

  7. RAMSA gives me so much hope for the future of New York architecture! I hope they design even more and influence other companies.

  8. A true symbol of the diminishing spirituality of our time.

    • Its a building. And they want new rats ro inhabit its basement. Albeit at an expensive tune. There is little space and price value downtown. Uptown hoods r where its at.

      Nezt is waahington bheights and bx.
