Schematics Posted Of Seven-Story, 21-Unit Residential Building At 17 Convent Avenue, Manhattanville

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.

The latest project headed to the neighborhood is an 11-story residential building at 308 West 133rd Street, between St. Nicholas Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard.

Back in 2013, a group of Chinese investors closed on two big development sites just north of Columbia University in West Harlem for $6,600,000. Now they’ve filed plans to develop the property on West 126th Street between Amsterdam and Morningside Avenues. New building applications call for a 16-story residential building at 418 West 126th and a nine-story hotel at 412 West 126th. The two structures may not be physically connected, but they have been filed as one project.
