Last week, applications were filed for a four-story, 18,987-square-foot commercial building at 286 Lenox Avenue, located between West 124th and 125th streets in Harlem. A rendering of the project has since surfaced, courtesy of Harlem+Bespoke. Staten Island-based Gambino+LaPorta Architecture is behind the design. There plan includes retail space on the ground floor and office space on the second, third, and fourth floors. The rendering indicates Sephora, a French cosmetic company, may set up shop in the building, although nothing has been confirmed. An anonymous Midtown East-based LLC is the property owner. A two-story building must first be demolished.
Gambino and Laporta Architecture
An anonymous Midtown East-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, 18,987-square-foot commercial building at 286 Lenox Avenue. That’s between East 124th and 125th streets in Harlem. The project will include 15,012 square feet of commercial space in total. Retail space will be located on the ground floor, followed by office space on the second through fourth floors. Staten Island-based Gambino+LaPorta Architecture will design the 58-foot-tall structure. The 44-foot-wide, 3,792-square-foot property is occupied by a two-story commercial building. Demolition permits haven’t been filed.
In July of 2015, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the the six-story, 202,361-square-foot commercial-retail project being built at 100 West 125th Street, located on the corner of Malcolm X Boulevard, in Harlem. That October, the structure topped out, and now, the building’s façade appears to be nearly complete, according to Harlem+Bespoke. All six floors, plus the cellar level, will be utilized as retail space, and a number of retailers have already signed leases in the building. Notable tenants include Whole Foods Market, American Eagle, Nordstrom Rack, Burlington Coat Factory, Raymour & Flanigan, Olive Garden, and TD Bank. Wharton Properties, headed by Jeff Sutton, is the developer, while Staten Island-based Gambino + LaPorta Architecture is behind the design. Opening can probably be expected in the coming months.
This past summer, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the five-story commercial project at 100 West 125th Street, in Harlem, and now the building appears to have topped-out, according to Harlem+Bespoke. Jeff Sutton is developing, and the building is nearly fully reserved by a slew of retail tenants, including Whole Foods, Burlington Coat Factory, Raymour and Flanigan, and TD Bank, among others. Staten Island-based Gambino and Laporta Architecture is designing, and a 2016 opening appears likely.
