Extell Development, on January 14, received a permit for construction of a 479-unit, 364,239-square-foot mixed-use building at 180 East 125th Street in East Harlem. The owner representative in the filing was David Rothstein of Extell.
Back in April of 2020 the developer filed plans for a 120-foot tall, nine-story, 354,350-square-foot office at the site.
However, those plans have now been altered to reflect plans for the construction of a large mixed-use residential building at the site. The updated PW1 was uploaded on June of 2021, according to an examination of plans in the DOB under the job number 121207504.
The updated plans call for the construction of a 138-foot tall, 13-story mixed-use building.
The developer uploaded zoning schematics of the project in November of this past year.
The project is described in the filings as: construct new 13-story mixed-use building with commercial and residential use as per plans filed.
Per the updated plans, the ground floor of the building will have a lobby, leasing office, and retail space. The second floor will have a terrace, amenity spaces, and 37 dwelling units. Floors three through nine will each have 45 dwelling units per floor, floors 10 and 11 will each have 35 dwelling units, and floors 12 and 13 will each have 32 dwelling units. The cellar will have an exercise room, lockers, a swimming pool, offices, and parking.
Extell bought the building, which was formally a Pathmark supermarket, in April 2014 for $39 million. Extell also purchased the neighboring building, formally a U.S. Post Office, for $10 million that same year.
In September 2016, more than two years after the building was purchased, plans were filed to demolish it.
Extell recently followed a similar path to file plans for a 1,350-key hotel in Times Square. The developer originally filed plans for a 164-foot tall, 10-story, 194,552-square-foot office building at the site, before altering the plans for the current hotel.
