Plans for a 22-story condominium in Morningside Heights have been revealed, Harlem Bespoke reported. Construction activity on the site, located at 240 Manhattan Avenue, has begun, and the projected completion date is January 2014.
Architect GF55 Partners is behind the project with Yoav Haron, CFO at Artimus Construction, who also developed 5th on the Park, according to Department of Buildings filings. GF55 says on its website that the building will have 88 units and 83,400 square feet. This will be one of the largest new developments to rise in the neighborhood these past few years, according to Harlem + Bespoke. Permits for new construction on this site, currently a vacant lot, have been on the DOB’s website for over a year.
Curbed said that the structure was originally intended to become a one-story retail space.
