In East Harlem, an overgrown vacant lot next to P.S. 96, the
site of a church until it was razed in 2007, is being filled back in, according to a new building permit application filed yesterday.
Plans call for a new nine-story apartment building at 217 East 119th Street, mid-block between Second and Third Avenues.
The project would have 32 units spread over 26,000 square feet of residential space, for an average apartment size of just over 800 square feet (we’re guessing rentals). The residences (four on each floor) would be perched atop a 3,000-square foot community facility space in the basement and on the ground floor.
The developer is Bay Ridge-based Anhui Realty, and the architect is ABC Engineering, based out in Bayside. Anhui closed on the development site in February, paying $3.25 million (or around $110 per buildable square foot) to the Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church for the land.
