A rendering of the base has been revealed, along with new details, of the 1,100-unit mixed-use development proposed at 321 East 96th Street, located in East Harlem near the border of the Upper East Side. The latest plans call for a 1.3-million-square-foot complex featuring a 68-story tower, DNAinfo reported. It includes a total 270,000 square feet of space for three academic facilities: the School of Cooperative Technical Education (COOP Tech), a vocational trade school currently located on-site in a four-story building, and Heritage School and Park East High School, two public high schools with existing facilities nearby.

There would also be 1,100 rental apartments, of which 30 percent, or 330 units, would permanently rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. In addition, 20,000 square feet of retail space will be created. The Marx Brothers Playground will be retained and is slated to receive a renovation. The New York City Educational Construction Fund (ECF), part of the city’s Department of Education, chose AvalonBay as the developer. The project must be approved through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP).
