Great Neck, N.Y.-based Kalico Group has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building at 165 East 107th Street, in East Harlem. The townhouse will measure 5,656 square feet and rise on a vacant 17-foot-wide, 1,716-square-foot lot. One of the units will be located on the ground floor and the other unit will span the second, third, and fourth floors. There will also be a roof deck. Sion Hourizadeh’s Floral Park, N.Y.-based Sion Consulting Engineering is the applicant of record. The site has long been vacant, but it’s very likely it was once occupied by a four-story brownstone.
It appears the final design has been fully revealed for the 11-story, 233-unit mixed-use building under development at 149 East 125th Street, a.k.a. 146 East 126th Street, on the northern end of East Harlem. A groundbreaking ceremony has also been held for the project, dubbed Gotham East 126th Residential, Curbed NY reported. The latest building permits indicate it will encompass 275,566 square feet and rise 120 feet to the roof, not including the bulkhead.
Now that East Harlem is going to get an $8.7 million apartment at Circa Central Park, it only seems natural that the future condos at 1399 Park Avenue will fetch up to $3 million. The building has finally begun to rise at the corner of 104th Street, and YIMBY has a photo courtesy of Tectonic.

Beth Israel Hospital is planning to close and sell off some of its buildings in the East Village, eventually demolishing the 825-bed hospital and developing a newer, smaller facility.
