Through a deal with the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), BRP Companies is planning a 38-unit mixed-use building at 841-847 St. Nicholas Avenue, located on the corner of West 152nd Street in Hamilton Heights. The new building will measure 32,470 square feet, DNAinfo reported. All of the project’s apartments will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. The Dance Theatre of Harlem will also have studio space on the ground floor. New building applications have not been filed at this time. The vacant, 7,063-square-foot site is located within the Hamilton Heights/Sugar Hill Northwest Historic District, meaning the Landmarks Preservation Commission has to approve the new building.
Last month, BRP Companies closed on the purchase of the 7,063-square-foot vacant lot at 841-847 St. Nicholas Avenue – located on the corner of West 152nd Street, in Hamilton Heights – for $3.1 million. In November, after the developer entered into contract for the site, the previous property owners, Dance Theater of Harlem, payed $875,000 to the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) to lift an existing deed restriction. The restriction only allowed nonprofit cultural organizations to use the property, according to the New York Times. The city has reportedly been in talks to develop roughly 24 affordable housing units on the site, but new buildings applications have not been filed. The property could accommodate 21,189 square feet of residential space as-of-right. The site is located within the Hamilton Heights/Sugar Hill Northwest Historic District, which means the Landmarks Preservation Commission would have to approve the design of a new project.
