Friedland Properties is planning to put up a 20-story mixed-use building at 2234 Broadway at West 80th Street, where a two-story commercial property now stands.
Friedland, both a landlord and a developer, has requested a demolition permit for 2228-2236 Broadway; the tower planned for the site will include commercial space and luxury apartments. The retail portion will cover two floors above ground and two floors below. The residential units will be either rentals or condominiums and most will have balconies.
State Assembly member Linda Rosenthal is calling for the development to reserve some units for affordable housing, West Side Rag reported, citing Lauren Schuster, Rosenthal’s chief of staff.
Friedland developed the nearby Larstrand, at 227 West 77th Street; leasing started in September at the 20-story, 143-unit rental building. Just this week, Friedland claimed that noted restaurateur Max Burgio owes $350,000 in allegedly unpaid rent at 14 East 58th Street, as The Real Deal reported. [West Side Rag] — Mark Maurer
