Preservationists have fought to landmark the former Yuengling Brewery complex in West Harlem, but some of the late 19th century buildings may bite the dust for a 12-story commercial and community facility building at 460 West 128th Street.
In Early 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of L+M Development Partners’ planned seven-story, 50-unit mixed-use building at 260 West 153rd Street, in Harlem. Since then the project has wrapped up construction, according to DNAinfo. The 75,484 square-foot structure is completely clad in brick façade and its windows have been installed. There will be 14,331 square feet of community facility space on the ground and second floors, which will be occupied by a day care and offices for a local community organization. The apartments above will all rent at below market-rates. Thirty-four of them – studios, one-, and two-bedrooms – are already listed on the affordable housing lottery. Curtis + Ginsberg Architects is behind the design and occupancy is expected within the coming months.
Since April of 2015, Brooklyn-based Blue Stone Capital has been filing applications for a six-story, 20-unit residential building at 3 West 128th Street, in Harlem. The project will encompass 15,896 square feet, and 13,163 square feet will be used as residential space. Units will begin on the ground floor and will average 658 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. The structure will be topped by a 433.5 square-foot rooftop recreational space. Boaz Golani’s Bronx-based BMG Design Build is the architect of record. The 35-foot-wide vacant lot traded hands for $2 million this past October.
Guy Altberg, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building at 116 West 127th Street, in Harlem, located two blocks north of the 125th Street stop on the 2 and 3 trains. The 5,420 square-foot structure would rise on a vacant 17-foot-wide lot and will include 4,622 square feet of residential space. One residential unit will occupy the basement and first floors, and the second units will span the second, third, and penthouse levels. Suresh Manchanda’s Flushing-based L&C Associates is the applicant of record.
One of the last large, vacant lots in central Harlem is about to become an apartment building. The property’s longtime owners, the Fane family, have filed plans to erect a 10-story residential development on the plot at 305 West 128th Street, between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and St. Nicholas Avenue.
