Horizon Construction Inc. has filed applications for a six-story, six-unit residential building at 449 Convent Avenue, in Hamilton Heights, five blocks north of the 145th Street stop on the A and C trains.

The unit on the fourth floor will also include a fifth-floor penthouse. Anthony Morena’s Midtown-based Arch + Dev Mortar is the architect of record.
