This past January, YIMBY reported on applications for a 10-story, 57-unit residential development at 305 West 128th Street, in central Harlem, located on a block-through plot with West 129th Street at the other side. Now, Harlem+Bespoke has an image of an on-site rendering depicting the site’s southern 10-story component. On the 129th Street side, there will be an eight-story building, and together, the entire project will encompass 68,103 square feet. As reported earlier, the apartments should average 931 square feet apiece, which means rentals or condos may be in the works. Fane Organization is the developer and Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is behind the design. The 10,000-square-foot site is currently vacant, though a construction timeline has not been disclosed.
Back in October of 2014, YIMBY reported that construction was wrapping up on Columbia University’s nine-story, 450,000-square-foot Jerome L. Greene Science Center at 3229 Broadway, between West 129th and 130th Streets, in the Manhattanville section of Harlem. It was the first building to rise within Columbia’s new 17-acre Manhattanville campus. Later that year, the single-story structures on the triangular lot immediately to the south were demolished in preparation for Columbia’s three-story, 55,890-square-foot academic conference center. Harlem+Bespoke now has a rendering of that building, located at 3205 Broadway. The building will include a café, an information center, offices, meeting rooms, and two auditoriums. Excavation work is reportedly underway and completion of the building is expected in 2018. Renzo Piano Building Workshop is the design architect and Dattner Architects is the architect of record.
Back in October of 2015, the Harlem Hebrew Language Academy Charter School, located in the five-story building at 147 St. Nicholas Avenue, between West 117th and 118th streets in Harlem, filed applications for an expansion into the vacant corner lot on 118th Street. The five-story, 37,907-square-foot structure would be transformed into a six-story, 51,517-square-foot building through various vertical and horizontal expansions. Harlem+Bespoke now has an on-site rendering of the project, being designed by BL Companies Inc. Once completed, the building will include a cafeteria, classrooms, muti-purpose rooms, administration offices, and an auditorium.
Property owner Zhi Lin has filed applications for a six-story, nine-unit mixed-use building at 1471 Amsterdam Avenue, in Harlem’s Manhattanville section, on the block between West 131st and 133rd streets. The new building will rise on a 25-foot-wide lot and measure a total 8,854 square feet. The ground floor will have a 1,280-square-foot commercial establishment and the residential units stacked above will average a rental-sized 616 square feet apiece. Amenities include a recreation room and laundry in the cellar, and rooftop recreation area. James Cheng’s Flushing-based Urban Architectural Design is the architect of record. Demolition work commenced on the existing single-story structure this past December, according to filings.
Effie Dilmanian, doing business as a Floral Park-based LLC, has filed applications for an eight-story, 22-unit residential building at 127 West 112th Street, in Harlem, located two blocks north of Central Park. The new structure will encompass 28,676 square feet and would fill a vacant 60-foot-wide lot. Residential space will span 20,675 square feet in the project, which means units will average a relatively spacious 940 square feet apiece. The apartments could be either rentals or condominium. Karl Fischer is the architect of record. Future residents would be within four blocks of subway stops on the 2, 3, B, and C trains.
