Central Harlem hasn’t seen quite as much development as the area southeast of 125th Street, but developers have finally started paying attention to the quiet and transit-rich blocks next to the City College campus. The latest project headed to the neighborhood is an 11-story residential building at 308 West 133rd Street, between St. Nicholas Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard.
Affordable housing may grow on two empty lots near the elevated subway tracks in Longwood, a neighborhood in the southeastern Bronx. Plans were filed yesterday to erect a seven-story apartment building at 917 Westchester Avenue and a six-story one at 940 Rogers Place, around the corner from the Intervale Avenue stop on the 2 and 5 trains.
Back in April of this year, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 38-unit mixed-use building at 1930 Bedford Avenue, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and now an on-site sketch of the project has been posted, courtesy of photographer Tectonic. It will measure 38,236 square feet in total and will include 7,441 square feet of health care offices on the ground and second floors. Residential units begin on the third floor and should average 810 square feet apiece. Though two two wood-framed structures were demolished over the summer, construction has yet to begin. Nik Lavrinoff is developing and Z Architecture is designing.
C.A. White Inc., based in New Haven, Conn., has filed applications for two residential buildings on a 27-foot-wide block-thru lot at 21 West 17th Street and 16 West 18th Street, in the Flatiron District. The northern one would stand 13 stories tall and have 12 residential units, each averaging 1,863 square feet apiece. The southern one would be a 10-story, nine-unit structure with average residential units of 1,882 square feet, both indicative of condos. Morris Adjmi Architects is the applicant of record. Two- and three-story structures on the 18th and 17th Street ends, respectively, must first be demolished. Both addresses are in the Ladies Mile Historic District, which means the Landmarks Preservation Commission would have to approve both the demolitions and new construction.
Nava Companies has filed applications for an eight-story, six-unit mixed-use building at 14 White Street, in TriBeCa. The project will measure 19,703 square feet in total and includes 3,816 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Beginning on the second floor, there will be a single residential unit on each floor through the sixth, and a duplex unit will span the top two floors. Units will surely be condos, averaging 2,866 square feet each. DXA Studio is the architect of record.
