Premier Equities is placing on the market an assemblage of five tenement buildings along Third Avenue, between East 74th Street and 75th streets, on the Upper East Side. According to Crain’s, the five-story tenements at 1291-1297 Third Avenue (the corner property also uses the address 201 East 74th Street) and another undisclosed four-story building on 75th Street are being advertised to developers. There’s roughly 115,000 square feet of development potential at the site, although a developer would most likely demolish two of the tenement buildings for a 95,000 square-foot residential tower, according to Meridian Investment Sales, the brokerage firm tasked to sell the properties. The assemblage doesn’t come with an asking price.
In January, YIMBY brought you the first look at a 23-story residential project planned for 4650 Broadway, on the border between Washington Heights and Inwood. Now, a different developer has filed plans for a 19-story apartment building only two blocks south, at 4566 Broadway.
Not everything happening on or near Billionaires’ Row is supertall. Some of it is supersmall, relatively speaking. Two months ago, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the restoration and renovation of an individual landmark in the midst of the coming towers.

As East Harlem braces for another rezoning, developers continue to transform the neighborhood’s small storefronts and vacant lots into new residential projects. Last week, we spotted plans for another building that we can add to the fast-growing list of developments in the area. It would rise at 2282 Second Avenue, on the corner of 117th Street.
In September of 2015, YIMBY revealed initial renderings for the 11-story, 21-unit mixed-use building planned at 209-211 West 14th Street, in southern Chelsea. Now, the New York Times has renderings of the final design, along with other details. The 39,494 square-foot project, dubbed the d’Orsay, will sport one-, two, three-, and four-bedroom condominiums designed by Studio Jacques Garcia. Apartment should average 1,712 square feet apiece and some will feature private outdoor terraces. Amenities will include a spa, a roof lounge, a fitness center, and bike storage. There will also be 464 and 284 square feet of retail and community facility space, respectively, on the ground floor. Adellco is the developer and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is designing. The site’s old four-story commercial building was demolished this past July, but it’s not known if construction is underway.
