Full demolition permits have been filed for 1594-1598 Second Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. According to the filing, the adjacent sites are owned by Kalimian Group under the ELK 300 East 83 LLC and currently house two five-story mixed-use buildings. Within the 60-feet-tall structures is a combined 17,540 square feet, eight units apiece, and ground-floor commercial space.
It remains to be seen what will be built on the 4,000-square-foot corner lot with a 100-foot-long street frontage that faces both Second Avenue and East 83rd Street.
Located three blocks away to the north is the 86th Street subway station, serviced by the Q train. Given the proximity to the subway, both sites are marked as transit land use.
George Cambourakis of Structural Engineering Tech is listed as the applicant of record.
