In March of 2015, YIMBY reported on filings for a 23-story, 108-unit mixed-use tower at 1399 Park Avenue, between East 103rd and 104th street in East Harlem. Initially, Heritage Real Estate Partners planned a rental building, but the project will now have 72 condominiums, according to The Real Deal. Since there will be 93,850 square feet of residential space, units will average 1,303 square feet apiece. The 134,000 square-foot development will also have 20,198 square feet of non-profit community facility space on the ground through fourth floors. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the architect of record. The site’s two former dilapidated townhouses have since been demolished.
