Rick Gropper’s Camber Property Group is planning a nine-story, 136-unit residential building in Harlem.

The company filed plans for the project with the Department of Buildings on Thursday. It will be known as Victory Plaza, span roughly 150,500 square feet and stand 87 feet tall.

The residential units will be affordable rentals, and Camber expects the project to cost $58.4 million, according to its website.

The project is a joint venture between Camber and its non-profit partner Harlem Congregations for Community Improvement, and the housing will be for seniors, according to Gropper, a principal at Camber Property who was formerly at L+M. Amenities will include outdoor recreation space and multiple community rooms.

Construction on the building should begin late in 2018 and finish late in 2020.

Last year, Camber made a pair of large Bronx purchases. The firm picked up the 11-building Stevenson Commons complex in July with Settlement Housing Fund for $70.9 million and buildings at 820 and 880 Thieriot Avenue in November with LIHC Investment Group and Belveron Partners for $19 million.
