One of the largest new developments in East Harlem is now making substantial headway at 1399 Park Avenue, on the corner of East 104th Street, as shown in the latest progress photos by Tectonic. Heritage Real Estate Partners report that the structure will be topping out soon. Window installation is expected to start by mid-January, but the concrete exterior seen now will likely remain about the same through completion, judging by the renderings.

The project was inspired by Piet Mondrian’s unique abstract style of painting. Coincidentally, Mondrian was once included in a 1936 London exhibition titled, “Abstract and Concrete,” which might have been a good name for the design by Hill West Architects.

The building will create 72 condominium units, with prices ranging between $680,000 and $3 million. There will be plenty of amenities, including multiple private terraces on various floors, and a fifth-floor amenities lounge with a game room and fitness center.that extends into a terrace. There will be 46-car garage, and 19,000 square feet of community facility space on floors two through four.

Heritage Real Estate Partners, led by Jeremy Markowitz, is developing the site. They purchased it for $12 million in 2014. When applications were filed last year, the building was going to hold 108 rental units. But Heritage evidently saw the shifting neighborhood dynamics of East Harlem and filed condo plans with the state in 2016.

The site is two blocks away from the 6 train at 103rd and Lexington Avenue, and the Second Avenue Subway line’s stop at 96th Street is three avenues east, and several blocks south.

    What y’all need to do is have rentals for people with incomes starting at $17,000 instead of running people who lived in the hood all those lives out because of your high ass rental prices

  6. Quite brave of the developers to put this attractive new condo adjacent to the MetroNorth viaduct and surrounded by NYCHA projects. I wish them luck. Those hoping for affordable housing at all income levels should stop demanding it from the tooth fairy and instead back overall increase in housing production and supply, which is how you get large amounts of housing for low income people in places like Houston, etc.

  7. The architectural designed of this building is attractive. Only one down fall it has blocked my panoramic view of the sunrise. It’s design it will allow me to enjoy wonderful sunsets on the window’s reflection. Welcome to East Harlem.
    PS thank you for upscaling Park Ave,your presence have pushed Metro North to fix the train tracks,now the trains don’t sound so much like 1800 locomotives.
