Yesterday, YIMBY revealed a new condominium project coming to 17 Convent Avenue, on the corner of West 128th Street. Today, we have the first renderings for another condo building by the same developer just two blocks up, at 52 Convent Avenue, on the southwest corner of West 130th Street.
Back in April of 2015, YIMBY reported on the filing of new building applications for a long-forlorn site at 17 Convent Avenue, on the corner of West 128th Street, in West Harlem. Later that year we featured preliminary drawings of what the lot would yield, and now, we have the actual reveal for the project, which is going to result in remarkably attractive infill.
Earlier this year, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 21-unit residential building at 17 Convent Avenue, between West 127th and 128th Streets in Manhattanville. Now a schematic drawing has been posted on the site of the 23,537 square-foot project, per Harlem+Bespoke. Residential units will average 1,121 square feet apiece, which means condominiums are probably in the works. Permits were granted by the Department of Buildings this past November and completion is scheduled for late 2016. Kane Ventures is the developer and Chelsea-based Alexander Compagno is the architect of record.
Despite improvements in recent years, parts of Upper Manhattan are still smattered with vacant lots, but yet another will soon be turned into an actual building. Permits were filed today for a 7-story residential structure at 17 Convent Avenue, on the southeast corner of Convent and 128th Street, just to the south of City College.
