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.
Last week, applications were filed for a four-story, 18,987-square-foot commercial building at 286 Lenox Avenue, located between West 124th and 125th streets in Harlem. A rendering of the project has since surfaced, courtesy of Harlem+Bespoke. Staten Island-based Gambino+LaPorta Architecture is behind the design. There plan includes retail space on the ground floor and office space on the second, third, and fourth floors. The rendering indicates Sephora, a French cosmetic company, may set up shop in the building, although nothing has been confirmed
