After half a century on Lenox Avenue just north of Central Park in Harlem, the Second Canaan Baptist Church will meet the wrecking ball to make way for a new apartment building.
Now that East Harlem is going to get an $8.7 million apartment at Circa Central Park, it only seems natural that the future condos at 1399 Park Avenue will fetch up to $3 million. The building has finally begun to rise at the corner of 104th Street, and YIMBY has a photo courtesy of Tectonic.
HAP Investments made its mark on Manhattan building splashy rental buildings in Harlem and Washington Heights. Now, the firm is pushing forward with its first major downtown project, a two-building, 290,000-square-foot residential development on West 28th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues. They’ve filed plans for the second 21-story building in the complex, at 225 West 28th Street.
New York City’s hospitals are struggling. St Vincent’s Hospital in the West Village shut its doors in 2010 and sold most of its property to condo developers. Beth Israel Hospital is plans to close and sell off some of its buildings in the East Village, eventually demolishing the 825-bed hospital and developing a newer, smaller facility.
