Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 221 East 117th Street in East Harlem, Manhattan. Located between Second Avenue and Third Avenue, the lot is two blocks from the 116 Street subway station, serviced by the 6 train. Roy Moussaeiff under the 221 East 117 Street LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The proposed 70-foot-tall development will yield 12,540 square feet, with 9,962 square feet designated for residential space. The building will have 12 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 830 square feet. The masonry structure will also have a cellar, mezzanine, and a 34-foot-long rear yard.
Robert Bianchini of ARC Architecture + Design Studio is listed as the architect of record.
Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
