Construction has topped out and is now wrapping up on the four-story, eight-unit residential project under development at 173 Morningside Avenue, located between West 126th and 127th streets in Harlem. The structure can be seen in a photo posted to Harlem+Bespoke. The latest building permits indicate the project measures 5,625 square feet. Its residential units should average 563 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Floral Park, N.Y.-based Tony Kohan is the property owner and Shahriar Afshari’s Roslyn, N.Y.-based architecture firm is the architect of record. Occupancy can probably be expected later this year.
Construction has topped out 60 feet above street level on the six-story, 13-unit residential project under development at 15 West 119th Street, in Harlem. The structure can be seen in a photo posted to Harlem+Bespoke. The latest building permits indicate the project measures 13,813 square feet. The residential units should average 824 square feet apiece, although it’s unclear whether they will be rentals or condominiums. Pielet Brothers Construction is the developer. Melamed Architect is the design architect, although Design + Urbanism Architectural is the current architect of record. Completion is expected next year.
It was back in May of 2014 that YIMBY revealed a rendering of the planned eight-story, six-unit residential building at 313 West 121st Street, in Harlem. Now, foundation work is underway at the site, although the structure has yet to rise above street level, Harlem+Bespoke reported. The latest building permits indicate the project will measure 11,616 square feet. Its residential units should average 1,625 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums, and a terrace will be located on the roof. Bestrow Realty is the developer and NoMad-based Soluri Architecture is behind the design. Completion is expected in early 2018.
Over the summer, the Durst Organization entered into contract to acquire the 36,281-square-foot site at 1800 Park Avenue, located between East 124th and 125th streets in Harlem. The developer has since closed on the purchase for just under $91 million, the New York Post reported. Durst will abandon the ODA New York-designed 24-story, 670-unit mixed-use project (originally 32 stories and 682 units) envisioned by the Continuum Company, the site’s previous owner. Instead, completely new plans will be drawn up, presumably by a different architect. Regardless, the final plans will include a large affordable housing component. Roughly 600,000 square feet of mixed-use space can be built as-of-right. The project is still eligible for the 421-a tax abatement since Continuum technically conducted foundation work at the site.
The Brooklyn-based Meshberg Group has filed applications for an eight-story, 14-unit residential building at 310 West 113th Street, on the southern end of Harlem. The project will measure 26,701 square feet and its residential units should average 1,435 square feet, indicative of condominiums. Some of the apartments will be duplexes. Amenities will include private residential storage space, laundry facilities, and a rooftop terrace. Issac & Stern Architects is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 5,046-square-foot assemblage consists of three 16- to-17-foot-wide three-story townhouses. The structures are expected to be demolished, although permits haven’t been filed yet.
