145 West 110th Street

Permits Filed for 145 West 110th Street, Harlem

Central Park North doesn’t often see new developments, but now, new building applications have been filed for a vacant site at 145 West 110th Street, in Harlem. The structure will stand 13 stories and 135 feet to its roof, containing 55,634 square feet of residential space, which will be divided between 36 units. At an average size of over 1,500 square feet, that means condominiums are very likely. Gluck+ Architects will be designing the project, and Yiannes Einhorn of Einhorn Development Group is the developer.

YIMBY caught up with Miki Naftali at 210 West 77th Street to discuss how the firm’s other projects are coming along, how they managed to acquire two development sites that avoid the red tape that chokes so much of the Upper West Side, and the state of the market in general.
