Permits have been filed for a two-story commercial building at 1968 2nd Avenue, in East Harlem, Manhattan. The site is three blocks away from the 103rd Street Subway Station, serviced by the 4 and 6 trains. Five blocks to the south is the 96th Street Subway Station, serviced by the Q trains. An anonymous LLC is listed as responsible for the development.
The 31-foot tall structure will yield 20,570 square feet of commercial space. The ground floor will make space to replace the existing supermarket. Office space will occupy the mezzanine of the first floor, and the entirety of the second floor. The cellar will be dedicated to storage.
Befal F. Salim’s Whitestone-based Platonic Solids Architecture is the architect of record.
Demolition permits were filed for the site in April of 2017. The estimated completion date has not been announced.
