Israeli investor Yoram Avner is planning a 17-story office building at 710 Third Avenue, permits filed Friday with the city’s Department of Buildings show. The developer is proposing a 35,600-square-foot office building between 44th and 45th streets in Midtown East. Frank Demmerle, Jr. is the architect of record. Representatives for Avner didn’t comment by press time, nor did Demmerle. Avner bought the development site from budget hotelier Sam Chang in 2014, paying $17.4 million. In East Harlem, Avner and development partner Udi Gilboa are developing a 52-unit condominium project at 1790 Third Avenue. Dubbed “The Cereza,” the building has a total projected sellout of $54.6 million, filings with the New York State Attorney General’s office show.
