NEW YORK | 1800 Park Ave. | 107m | 352ft | 32 fl | Cancelled/On hold



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Harlem's Tallest Buildings Will Look Like a Sci-Fi Castle



Quote:
The new designs for 1800 Park Avenue, the development formerly known as Harlem Park, were recently unveiled at a Community Board 11 meeting, and let's just say they're a good deal more interesting than developer Ian Bruce Eichner's other big project that's currently in the works. Eichner, who seems to have a penchant for very tall buildings, has tapped architects ODA for the design of the two towers that, at 32 stories and 320 feet, will be Harlem's tallest. The rows of setbacks appear to be ODA's new thing but, in the case of 1800 Park, they look particularly odd next to the boxy neighboring tower.

The Community Boards concerns focused not on the height, but on the amount of affordable housing that the towers would provide. The project had originally committed to the 80/20 plan, with 380 market-rate rentals and 120 affordable ones, but now the numbers have changed, and Eichner's Continuum Company is guaranteeing only 70 affordable apartments out of 650 total units (11 percent). The developers are still trying to find financing for the $415 million project.

Also, these towers will replace a desolate, empty lot on a dreary stretch of E 125 St in Harlem.

Hm, I never knew Harlem didn't have any tall towers. The design takes a bit of getting used to, but I think it's a pretty cool idea.

What's considered "affordable" in Harlem anyway?

There's resistance in Harlem to taller buildings and this project may get some of that. Anything under $2,000 a month is 'affordable housing' in Manhattan. Harlem used to be very affordable but as gentrification rolls through, the Harlem discount gets slimmer by the year...

Community Board 11 Approves Zoning Changes For Harlem's Tallest Towers

Quote:
Community Board 11 voted unanimously yesterday to approve a zoning variance for the ODA-designed 1800 Park Avenue that will allow for more retail space and less parking. The towers, which, at 320 feet, will be the tallest in Harlem, will now feature an additional 63,000 square feet of retail on the first two floors, and less than half the number of parking spaces that zoning required. The second floor was originally going to be used as a garage.

Is that the building in Harlem we had a thread for about a year or two ago? I know I've seen that render before.

-edit- I just spent ten minutes searching for the original thread and that sneaky desertpunk had already merged them.

1800 Park Avenue Is Definitely Going to Stand Out in Harlem



Quote:
1800 Park Avenue, the peak of which will reach 352 feet, will be the tallest building in Harlem. It will also be among the most reflective judging by the new renderings scrounged up by NY YIMBY. The new renderings mostly show the building off from the same angles as the old ones, but are much clearer, putting in stark contrast the extent to which this development is unlike anything in its immediate vicinity. Bruce Eichner is developing the 32-story, 682-unit (20 percent affordable) tower, and ODA contributed the very-ODA design.

Looks like a giant started sculpting a abstract digital themed work of art from a monolith.
