Seven-Unit Residential Redevelopment Underway on Former 11-Unit SRO Building at 4 West 126th Street, Harlem

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.

Three-Story, 12-Unit SRO Building Being Converted Into Four Apartments at 226 West 132nd Street, Harlem

Work is now underway to convert the dilapidated three-story (plus basement), 12-unit single-room-occupancy (SRO) building at 226 West 132nd Street, in Harlem, into four residential apartments. Construction on the building can be seen in a photo posted to Harlem+Bespoke. Permits at the Buildings Department indicate there will be 3,384 square feet of residential space, which means the project’s four full-floor apartments should average 846 square feet apiece. It’s unclear if the apartments will be condominiums or rentals. Renovations to the structure include a rebuilding of the interior spaces, foundational work, and new windows. Chi F. Lau’s TriBeCa-based architectural firm is the architect of record and David Lavipour is the property owner. Completion can probably be expected later this year.

Eight-Story, 64-Unit Mixed-Income Residential Building Tops Out at 70 West 139th Street, Harlem

The eight-story, 64-unit mixed-use building under development by Harlen Housing Associates at 70 West 139th Street, in Harlem, has now topped out and is receiving its façade. YIMBY can bring you photos of the construction progress thanks to a tipster. The latest permits indicate the structure will encompass 68,857 square feet. The mixed-income project will feature a 1,878-square-foot community facility on the ground floor, followed by 64 condominiums averaging 836 square feet apiece. It was learned last year roughly two-third of the apartments, or 42, will receive some degree of affordable designation. Amenities include a 32-car underground garage, storage for 34 bikes, laundry facilities, private residential storage, an outdoor recreational space on the ground floor, and another “recreational room” on the ground floor (possibly a fitness center). Peter Franzese’s Greenwich Village-based design and engineering firm is the architect of record. Completion can probably be expected late this year or early next year.
