The Upper East Side could be getting a new tower. Garage Management Co., a parking lot operator, is buying air rights for an unspecified development on East 94th Street.

The company has ties to Swedish celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson. GMC partner Andrew Chapman claims on his Linkedin profile that he owns Samuelsson’s Red Rooster restaurant in Harlem and co-founded the Marcus Samuelsson Group.

The company is working with unspecified partners and it isn’t clear what they plan to build on East 94th Street, near Second Avenue, the New York Post reported. GMC owns a garage at 231 East 94th Street and an auto body shop 243 East 94th Street. The bulk of the site is commercially zoned.

GMC bought air rights from the St. David’s School at 215 East 94th Street, but because the school building doesn’t neighbor its property it will have to buy air rights from other lots as well. Avison Young is working with the garage company on the endeavor. [NYP] Konrad Putzier
