Full demolition permits have been filed for 1643, 1647, and 1649 First Avenue on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Located between East 85th and East 86th Streets, the cumulative 5,625-square-foot site has 75 feet of street frontage.
According to the filing, the property is owned by David Rothstein, executive vice president of Extell Development. It currently houses three mixed-use residential buildings rising four stories each, and built between 1900 and 1920. Extell also owns 1651 First Avenue, the corner lot that had demo permits filed in 2018.
No new construction permits have been filed yet. The zoning of C2-8A allows for a 2.0 floor area ratio for commercial and high residential density on the upper floors, to maximize development potential.
1643-1647 First Avenue is one block from the 86th Street subway station, serviced by the Q train.
Ancora Engineering is listed as the applicant of record.
