As Harlem’s development boom stretches northward, investors are taking aim at the more densely built-out and better preserved blocks in central Harlem. One longtime owner hopes to redevelop a lot at 152 West 140th Street, on the corner of Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard.
Yan Architect & Planner
Property owner Tu Kang Yang has filed applications for four six- to seven-unit residential buildings at 90-11 – 90-21 56th Avenue, in southern Elmhurst, located three blocks from the Grand Av-Newtown stop on the M/R. All of the structures will rise four stories and measure 6,200 square feet, and two six-unit buildings will be book-ended by the seven-unit buildings. Across the 26-unit development, there will be 19,600 square feet of residential space, which means units should average a rental-sized 754 square feet apiece. Danny Yan’s Fresh Meadows-based Yan Architect & Planner is the applicant of record. The site currently consists of two two-and-a-half-story wood-framed houses.
