Yesterday the New York Post wrote that “A major Harlem site opposite the Metro-North station is about to get the neighborhood’s tallest building.”

It is stated that this once stalled project, will feature towers at 320 feet at 1800 Park Ave. between 124th and 125th streets.  The post writes “the buildings will soon host 650,000 square-foot twin residential towers that will include 70,000 square feet of retail.

As The New York Post first reported back in April, Ian Bruce Eichner picked up the site for $65 million.  Under the 80/2o program, the development will include 120 affordable units and roughly 380 market-rate apartments that will rent at about $60 per foot.

Eichner has hired ODA – Architecture, known for the quirky cantilevered 100 Norfolk and 15 Union Square West.

The new retail and residential at 1800 Park Avenue will be opposite the Metro-North station and the architect confirmed that “it will have two very large towers” which will be the tallest building to date planned for Harlem.  Stay tuned for more information from HarlemCondoLife on this developing Real Estate story.
