Lendlease says it has completed the tower crane removal at Claremont Hall, marking a construction milestone for the 41-story mixed-use academic and residential development in Manhattan’s Morningside Heights neighborhood.
The all-electric tower crane was emblematic of the many green construction measures in place on the Claremont Hall job site, from the use of other non-diesel construction equipment to the incorporation of alternative materials such as low-embodied carbon concrete and steel, the builder said in a statement.
Claremont Hall was designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects and is being developed by Lendlease. Leveraging its integrated platform, Lendlease is also serving as construction manager. When completed, Claremont Hall will provide approximately 54,000 sq. ft. of modern classrooms, academic offices and faculty-designated apartments.
The remainder of the building comprises approximately 165 for-sale condominium residences in a mix of one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom floor plans. The 354,000-sq. ft. building topped out in October 2021 and is slated for completion in 2023.
