The first round of permits are up for landlord Brad Simmons’ Harlem development at 315 West 121st Street.

The structure will span 19,802 square feet and house a total of eight residential units, according to Department of Buildings filings cited by New York Yimby. Soluri is the architect of record.

Previous plans for a “horizontal extension” were disapproved late last year, but the new plans are similar to the originals.

A glassy building with a façade “sliced” along a diagonal will leave room for small balconies along part of the exterior, Yimby reported. Soluri’s Architizer page notes that the building will hold four full-floor two-bedroom units, a duplex penthouse and a triplex garden-level apartment. Whether the units will be condominiums or rentals was not immediately clear.

The property will stretch eight stories and 80 feet tall. Construction is slated to kick of later this year, but completion date has yet been announced. [New York Yimby]Julie Strickland
