A 15-story residential building is slated to rise over 411 West 120th Street in Morningside Heights. Developers filed plans Friday for a 142-foot-tall, 57-unit project there.
It will replace a six-story structure, also identified as 415 West 120th Street. Demolition plans were filed back in June.
Harry Tawil is listed as the owner of record and Beyer Blinder Belle will be the architect.
There will be 44,195 square feet of residential space, which comes out to about 775 square feet per apartment. Schedule A documents show three apartments on the first floor along with a lobby. Floors two through 14 will have four apartments each, and the 15th floor will host two apartments. There will also be a lounge in the basement.
The property was previously owned by the Jewish Theological Seminary, according to Department of Finance documents. The Seminary itself sits a few blocks away at 3080 Broadway, and earlier this year sold part of its property to Savanna for development. Beyer Blinder Belle will also work on that project.
As for the project at hand, it is near the northwest corner of Morningside Park and near Columbia University. The nearest subway stations 125th Street on the A, B, C, and D trains and 116th Street on the 1 train.
