Last November, YIMBY wrote about plans to demolish the Second Canaan Baptist Church in Harlem and replace it with a new residential building. Now we have a look at the project, which will be a graceful addition to Lenox Avenue just north of Central Park.
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration has selected Jonathan Rose Companies and L+M Development Partners to develop a multi-building, affordable mixed-use project at 1691 Madison Avenue, located on most of the block bound by Park and Madison avenues and East 111th and 112th streets in East Harlem.
Bronx-based JCAL Development Group has filed applications for a 15-story, 75-unit mixed-use building at 2395 Frederick Douglass Boulevard, located between West 128th and 129th streets in Harlem. The project will encompass 95,200 square feet and rise 147 feet to its roof, according to the filings. There will be 8,625 square feet of retail space for a ground-floor grocery store, followed by 75 apartments across the second through 15th floors. All of the units, averaging 910 square feet apiece, will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery.
Construction is now underway on the third floor of the seven-story, 30-unit residential building under development at 464 West 130th Street, located on the corner of Convent Avenue in the Manhattanville section of Harlem. An update by Harlem+Bespoke provides a look at the construction progress. The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 24,955 square feet and rise 69 feet to its main roof, not including bulkhead elements. Its residential units should average 642 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments
