Construction has topped out and façade installation has begun on the eight-story, 54-unit mixed-use building under development at 275 West 140th Street, located on the corner of Frederick Douglass Boulevard in northern Harlem. Harlem+Bespoke offered a glimpse of the building, dubbed Strivers Plaza, in its final stages. The latest permits indicate the structure measures 64,948 square feet. The ground floor will host an 8,024-square-foot market, in addition to 498 square feet of community facility space. On the floors above, 53 of the units (the 54th will be occupied by the superintendent) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. The apartments will come in studios to two-bedrooms, averaging 876 square feet apiece. Radson Development is the developer and Aufgang Architects is behind the design. Completion can probably be expected later this year.
Construction has been completed on the six-story, 14-unit residential building under development at 362 West 127th Street, in Harlem. The building appears to be ready for occupants, as seen in a photo by Harlem+Bespoke, and marketing is underway. Dubbed Three Sixty Two, it measures 11,657 square feet. Its residential units are condominiums, but should average a relatively compact 644 square feet apiece. They will come in studio and one-bedroom configurations. Amenities include private residential storage space, bike storage, and a rooftop deck. Howard Mermelstein, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, is the developer, while Staten Island-based deBoer Architects is behind the design.
Harlem is no longer known for abandoned buildings and neglected blocks. Small developments are filling in the vacant lots that once pockmarked the neighborhood, and today we have a look at one coming to 3 West 128th Street, between Fifth Avenue and Malcolm X Boulevard.
Much of upper Harlem is populated by aging apartment buildings, historic row houses, and huge public housing projects. But a few large development sites still exist in the neighborhood—usually car washes, gas stations, and other remnants of our more car-dependent past. Over the weekend, plans were filed to build a sizable apartment building at 2600 Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard (a.k.a. Seventh Avenue), a former car wash that sits a block from the Harlem River and close to the border with Washington Heights.
Construction is now wrapping up on the redevelopment of the former four-story, 11-unit single-room-occupancy (SRO) building at 4 West 126th Street, in Harlem, Harlem+Bespoke reported. The property has been expanded by two stories and 595 square feet, according to the latest building permits. The six-story structure will eventually host seven residential units averaging 888 square feet apiece. It’s not known if the units will be rentals or condominiums, although two of them will be duplexes. Joseph Aizer, doing business as an anonymous LLC, is the property owner. David Turner’s Midtown South-based architectural firm is the architect of record. Completion can probably be expected later this year.
