Recently, new developments and re-zonings promising community and retail amenities alongside thousands of new affordable housing units have been stymied in Two Bridges and Inwood. Now, plans for substantial injections of the aforementioned components by the Olnick Organization at Harlem‘s Lenox Terrace have been attacked as well. Spearheaded by Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, the latest effort constitutes a contemporary example of redlining, and is an explicit violation of the National Civil Rights Act of 1968.
The Olnick Organization has received approvals from the City Planning Commission to construct five new towers within the Lenox Terrace housing complex in Central Harlem. The Commission voted 11-1, with one abstention, in support of the project following drastic revisions to the original proposals.
Excavation is well underway at 2750-2754 Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Harlem, where Haussmann Development will eventually launch a pair of new buildings. Designed by Nicholas Kazalas of NDKazalas Architecture, the structures will function more like two connected wings and contain a mix of rental apartments, commercial tenants, and community facilities.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 463 West 125th Street in Harlem, Manhattan. Located between Amsterdam Avenue and Morningside Avenue, the lot is a short walk to the 125th Street subway station, serviced by the A, B, C, and D trains. Chaim Dahan under the Reglobe Development 100, LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The Olnick Organization has modified proposals to construct five new towers within the Lenox Terrace residential complex in Central Harlem. These changes arrive just days before a scheduled review by the City Planning Commission in response to opposition from the local Community Board 10 and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer.
