New York City Health and Hospitals filed plans for a 16-story residential building on First Avenue in East Harlem, next to Metropolitan Hospital and Draper Hall, a former dormitory that’s currently being transformed into housing for seniors.

The new 16-story building at 1912 First Avenue will hold 153 affordable-housing units across 131,316 square feet and an additional 650-square-foot community facility, according to a permit application filed with the city’s Department of Buildings on Wednesday. Amenities will include a recreation room, fitness center, and bike parking.

The agency filed plans last year to convert Draper Hall at 1918 First Avenue into a 14-story, 201-unit senior housing development with a senior center on site. The city’s Health and Hospitals agency awarded the developer SKA Marin a 99-year lease for the first Draper Hall building, and the project is slated for completion in 2017.

Both buildings at the Draper Hall campus, which sits astride FDR Drive between 97th and 98th streets, are being designed by Dattner Architects TRData LogoTINY. The buildings will be separate but complementary, a spokesperson for Dattner said.
