Preservationists have fought to landmark the former Yuengling Brewery complex in West Harlem, but some of the late 19th century buildings may bite the dust for a 12-story commercial and community facility building at 460 West 128th Street.
This past summer, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned 18-story, 63-unit mixed-use building planned at 147 East 86th Street (a.k.a 1289 Lexington Avenue), on the Upper East Side. Now its developers – Ceruzzi Properties, Kuafu Properties, and Stillman Development – have filed applications with the Department of Buildings. The new building will span 229,751 square feet in total, and the cellar through the second floors will contain 26,718 square feet of commercial space. The NY Sports Club is expected to occupy two floors in the building. The third floor will contain residential amenity space, featuring lounge spaces, a children’s playroom, and a gym. The condominium units, ranging from two- to five-bedrooms and averaging 2,800 square feet apiece, will also begin on the third floor. Hellmuth, Obata + Kassabaum (HOK) is designing and completion is expected in 2018. Two existing low-rise commercial buildings must first be demolished. [The Real Deal]
In the beginning of 2014, YIMBY brought you news of the imminent demolition of the 12-story residential buildings at 445 East 68th Street (a.k.a. 1283-1299 York Avenue), on the Upper East Side, to make-way for New York-Presbyterian Hospital’s expansion. The initial filings for the new building have since been amended and detail a 17-story, 733,500 square-foot building, 551,691 square feet of which will be considered active medical space. Thanks to photos by Tectonic, we can see the structure is now 11 stories above the street level and rising. Dubbed the David H. Koch Center, HOK (Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum) is behind the design of the building. Completion is expected in 2017 or 2018.
A few days ago, partial renderings of the new mixed-use development coming to 147-151 East 86th Street surfaced. The site abuts one of the most prominent corners of the Upper East Side in terms of pedestrian traffic, and fittingly, the existing structure will soon meet the wrecking ball for a new 21-story building with an address of 1289 Lexington Avenue, which YIMBY can now reveal.
Partial renderings have surfaced for a 21-story building at 147-155 East 86th Street, on the Upper East Side. The site is being developed by Ceruzzi Properties, Stillman Development and Kuafu Properties. According to Commercial Observer, the 230,000 square-foot building will include 30,000 square feet of retail on the first two floors, another 24,000 square feet on the third and fourth floors for a New York Sports Club, and 50 condominiums on top.
