Construction is wrapping up on an expansion project at 68 West 126th Street, in Harlem, as seen in a picture by Harlem+Bespoke. A formerly dilabidated four-story, 11-unit brownstone SRO building has been redeveloped into a six-story, six-unit residential structure, per the latest building permits. The building now has 5,578 square feet of residential space, which means the apartments should average 930 square feet apiece. Many of the units will occupy an entire floor, although it’s unknown if they will be rentals or condominiums. An anonymous Harlem-based LLC is the property owner and Barry Goldsmith’s Brooklyn-based firm is the architect of record.
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.

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.

The residential units should average 985 square feet apiece, which means either rentals or condominiums could be in the works. Walter Marin’s Midtown South-based Marin Architects is the architect of record and an anonymous Woodside-based company is the property owner. Occupancy can likely be expected in the coming weeks or months.
