Full demolition permits have been filed for 1305-1307 Third Avenue and 202 East 75th Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Located at the southeast corner of Third Avenue and East 75th Street, the 8,178-square-foot site has 101 feet of street frontage.

According to the filing, the property is owned by Melissa Cohen, director of EJS Development under the 1303 Third, LLC. It currently houses three mixed-use residential buildings ranging between four and five stories, and built between 1900 and 1910.

No new construction permits have been filed yet, however the zoning of C1-9 allows for a 2.0 Floor Area Ratio for commercial and high residential density on the upper floors.

1305-1307 Third Avenue and 202 East 75th Street are two blocks from the 77th Street subway station, serviced by the 6 train and three blocks from the 72nd Street station, serviced by the Q train.

H&O Engineering is listed as the applicant of record.

    The problem for me is not the demolition, it is the lack of corresponding expedient construction to replace it. More and more of these avenue facing tenement-style buildings are coming down on the Upper East Side and then sitting as empty lots for years.

    You only have to go one block north of this address to find a a whole avenue-facing block of lots which was demolished in 2019 and sits vacant with seemingly no new use in sight. Its a similar situation at 79th and 1st, 86th and first and a variety of other smaller lots throughout the neighborhood.

    How many hundreds of relatively affordable apartments were demolished in these older buildings so real estate speculators could use the land as a casino chip, rather than a preclude to legitimate development?

      Well, you’ve also got an issue with the blood center expansion and the potential rezoning to allow for it. You know developers would kill to have this single spot-rezoning to serve as a pretext for rezoning the mid-block tenements and walk-ups. They would then basically have a much richer net of potential development sites.
