A year ago, New York University shut down the Coles Sports Center, the aging, two-story gym at the corner of Bleecker and Mercer Streets in the Village.

Construction is wrapping up on the six-story, 10-unit residential project under development at 313 West 117th Street, in Harlem. The structure can be seen in an update by Harlem+Bespoke. The latest building permits indicate the new building measures 11,910 square feet and rises 75 feet. 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.

The rooms should average a budget-sized 228 square feet apiece. Haworth, N.J.-based T.F. Cusanelli & Filletti Architects is the architect of record.
Construction is now five stories above street level on the 19-story, 72-unit mixed-use building under development at 2230 Broadway, located on the corner of West 80th Street, on the Upper West Side.
