Excavation was well underway back in 2013, when YIMBY reported on a large commercial project planned at 5-15 West 125th Street, in central Harlem. Since then, the project’s scope has increased from four to six stories, and also now includes a residential component of 30 units. The block-thru building is expected to have 75,000 square feet of commercial space, spanning from the cellar to the third floor, and the shorter 125th Street side is now getting its façade, per Harlem+Bespoke. The taller end on 126th Street is rising at a slower pace. Rosenbaum Design Group is the architect of record.
An anonymous LLC has filed applications for a six-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 818 60th Street, in southern Sunset Park, a block from the N train’s 8th Avenue stop. The building will measure 11,121 square feet in total, which includes 2,122 square feet of retail space on the ground and cellar levels, in addition to 2,017 square feet of community office space on the ground and second-floor levels. Shiming Tam — based a few blocks away in Borough Park — is the architect of record, and a two-story building must first be demolished.
Nush Rudaj has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 192 East 205th Street, in Bedford Park, five blocks north of the B/D train’s Bedford Park Boulevard stop. The building will measure 7,000 square feet, which means units will average 875 square feet. Nassau County-based Shahriar Afshari is the applicant of record, and demolition permits were filed in June to remove the existing 2.5-story wood-framed structure, which sold for $240,000 this past May.
Staten Island-based Cee-Jay Real Estate Development has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit residential building at the vacant lot of 94 Broad Street, in Stapleton. Located four blocks south of the neighborhood’s SIRR station, the building will measure just 1,951 square feet, which means units will average 975 square feet. Stanley Krebushevski’s SMK Architect is the applicant of record. A single-family building was previously proposed in 2009 but never built.
The 10-story, 35-unit rental building at 189 Avenue C, in the East Village, is undergoing a condo conversion, according to EV Grieve. Douglas Elliman is marketing the units, and the first few are available for purchase and immediate occupancy. Existing tenants are not obligated to purchase their unit and can remain tenants without fearing eviction. Before the condos launched earlier this month, the building changed hands for $32.5 million.
