Permits have been filed for a new seven-story residential structure at 244 East 52nd Street, in Midtown East. Issac & Stern Architects, P.C. is the designer, and Yehuda Mor of Minrav USA / 244 E 52 Owner LLC is listed as the developer.
The 27,369 square foot project will be 50 feet wide, and will rise 64 feet above street level. The lot measures just over 5,000 square feet, and will come with a 30-foot backyard and a cellar. The new ground-up structure will house 15 residential units, most likely about two to three units per floor, constructed with a masonry system. Condos are likely.
The site sits between Second Avenue and Third Avenue, close to the Lexington Av-53 St. Subway station on the E and M train. The building that stands today was completed in 1910 and spans just over 9,200 square feet. Demolition of the structure is still pending.
No construction, demolition or completion dates have been announced yet.
