Large mixed-use development slated for city-owned block in East Harlem

As East Harlem prepares to undergo a sweeping rezoning that would dramatically alter its landscape, a block-long site that is home to four community gardens is slated to become a 751,000-square-foot, mixed-use development.

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration has selected Jonathan Rose Companies, a prolific developer of rent-regulated housing, to construct 655 apartments and a host of amenities intended to create a self-sustaining community along East 111th and 112th streets, mayoral spokeswoman Melissa Grace said. The mostly city-owned site is bound by Madison and Park avenues and excludes two lots the administration was unable to acquire — a four-floor apartment building and a vacant plot of land.

In addition to apartments, the project will include a YMCA, supermarket, restaurant, job training center, preventative health care facility run by Mount Sinai, 85,000-square-foot DREAM charter school and space for the 122-year-old community organization Union Settlement, Grace said.

The new homes will be rented to people earning a range of incomes: One-fifth for three-person households earning up to $24,480, 60 percent for families of three making up to $48,960 and 20 percent for families of three earning $106,031. The highest bracket is more expensive than market-rate apartments for long-term and new tenants in East Harlem, but the city is dubbing this a “100 percent affordable” project because the city’s housing agency will regulate all rents.


This looks nice. I wonder what’s there now.



CPC Approves Mixed-Use Development with Community Gardens in East Harlem

A three-building mixed-use project will create 655 affordable housing units, 4 community gardens, an elevated public courtyard, space for Mt. Sinai medical offices and a DREAM charter school in East Harlem. On October 2, 2017, the City Planning Commission issued a favorable report on the Sendero Verde application submitted by NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (“HPD”). The application will facilitate the development of three mixed-use buildings containing 655 affordable units, commercial and community facilities, community gardens, and publicly accessible open space. The project will be developed between 112th Street to the north, 111th Street to the south, Park Avenue to the east, , and Madison Avenue to the west.

The land use application includes: (1) designating an Urban Development Action Area and an Urban Development Action Area Project for the area; (2) disposition of the property to a developer selected by HPD; (3) a zoning map amendment; (4) a zoning text amendment to establish a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing area; (5) the City acquiring a portion of the area for community garden use; (6) a special permit to modify height, setback, and yard requirements; (7) a special permit to allow commercial use above the second story in a mixed-use building; (8) a special permit to modify parking requirements; and (9) certification from the City Planning Commission to modify ground-floor use requirements.
