Last month, applications were finally filed for a long-vacant site at 1733 Lexington Avenue in East Harlem, on the corner of 108th Street. YIMBY now has the reveal for the development, which will give rise to a small but contemporary mixed-use project standing eight stories tall.
Prime Rok Real Estate has filed applications for an eight-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 150 East 108th Street, in East Harlem, two blocks from the 6 train’s stop at 110th Street. The 13,187 square-foot building will feature 2,209 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, followed by the same square footage in health care facility on the second floor. Apartments will occupy the third through eighth floors, averaging 877 square feet apiece. Bushwick-based Hany Rizkalla is the architect of record.
At the beginning of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings for HAP’s planned 10-story, 93-unit mixed-use building at 2211 Third Avenue, in East Harlem, and now the developer has broken ground on the project, Real Estate Weekly reports. In the 120,000 square-foot building, commercial-retail space on the bottom floors will measure 26,000 square feet. A community facility on the ground floor will also take up 1,000 square feet. Twenty percent of the apartments will be let at below-market rates, and Karl Fischer is designing.
Big Brooklyn Rehab Inc. has filed applications for a six-story, 11-unit residential building at 231 East 123rd Street, in East Harlem, four blocks from the 125th Street stop on the 4, 5 and 6 trains. The building will measure 8,670 square feet, which means units will average 790 square feet — probably rentals. Woody Chen’s Infocus Design & Planning is the applicant of record, and the existing three-story, three-family townhouse must first be demolished.
With construction now wrapping up on 625 West 57th Street, BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group has already begun transforming the Manhattan cityscape.
