An anonymous LLC has filed applications for an 11-story, 11-unit residential building at 1402 York Avenue, located between East 74th and 75th streets on the Upper East Side. The structure will measure 21,185 square feet, which means its residential units should average a spacious 1,926 square feet apiece. The apartments will have full-floor configurations, and condominiums must be in the works. Amenities include private residential storage, storage for six bikes, and a fitness center. Midtown South-based Kossar + Garry Architects is the architect of record and will likely be designing the building. The 20-foot-wide, 1,960-square-foot site is currently occupied by a two-story building. Demolition permits were filed in December to knock it down.

Back in October of 2015, the four-story townhouse at 253 East 7th Street, in the East Village, was being demolished for a new residential project.

Issac & Stern Architects is now designing the project, which will rise six stories and contain six residential units. The structure would measure 10,466 square feet and its units should average a spacious 1,498 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. There will be roughly one unit per floor, except a single apartment will share space with other units on the ground and second floors, and the sixth-floor unit will feature space on an upper penthouse level.
