Construction Update: Rental Towers at St.John The Divine

Concrete superstructure continues to rise at the residential towers adjacent to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The towers, designed by Handel Architects, have reached the 12th story on the west tower and the 15th story on the east tower, its final floor. Each structure features an exposed concrete structure with shaped concrete piers at the primary façade along West 113th Street. These piers reference the buttresses of the cathedral directly behind and animate the façade with their pattern of sloping from floor to floor. Windows with black metal frames will be inset between the concrete piers and have begun installation on the east tower at the second floor. When completed, the two towers will bring 428 residential rental units to the Morningside Heights neighborhood and a revenue stream to the church from the lease of the land.
