Luxury developments across the country are not only changing the face of the neighborhood they occupy but also contributing to the community. A handful of notable new NYC residential buildings create or enhance academic opportunities in their respective areas for example. Some include educational components to provide access to new public schools for children in the neighborhood or expand the footprints of existing academic institutions.
Located at 100 Claremont Avenue, Claremont Hall is a transformative 354,000-square-foot mixed-use academic and residential building designed by famous architecture firm Robert A.M. Stern Architects. Slated for completion in 2023, the riverside condominium is being developed by Lendlease, a global real estate group, L+M Development Partners and Daiwa House Texas, Inc.
The building is set uniquely within the historic Union Theological Seminary campus, adjacent to the Columbia University campus and immersed in the cultural and academic neighborhood of Morningside Heights. In addition to its 165 condominiums, the building will contain institutional offices, faculty housing, and classrooms for Union Theological Seminary.
Plank Road at 662 Pacific Street in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, is a 27-story residential building offering 312 apartments ranging in size from studios to two bedrooms plus den.
Currently open for tenants, it will be home to a future public middle school at the base of the building. Located in Pacific Park and designed by Marvel, Plank Road has unparalleled access to public transit, is a short distance from the bustling shops and restaurants on Vanderbilt Avenue and Brooklyn’s cultural institutions, and offers residents exclusive amenities and local partnerships. Steps away from the Barclays Center, nine subway lines at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station and the Long Island Railroad at Atlantic Terminal, Plank Road offers unparalleled access to the surrounding Brooklyn neighborhood, Manhattan and outer boroughs. Plank Road was developed by The Brodsky Organization.
