The building will also feature 1,425 square feet of retail, according to permits filed with the city. HTO Architect is designing the building.

The developer purchased the property in April for $28 million,shortly after investor Orin Portnoy purchased the property for $15.7 million. A five-story townhouse currently sits on the property, three doors down from Bloomberg’s home at 17 East 79th Street.
