NY Yimby reports that a proposal been submitted to the Landmarks Preservation Commission by PMA Architecture for 449 Convent Avenue, in Harlem, NY. The site is currently occupied by the right-most unit of a group of six brownstones. This particular structure has been marred from fire damage and requires remediation. The proposed rehab of the structure would replace and update the lot with a 54-foot-tall, five-story building, rising 10 feet higher than its adjacent counterparts.
The new structure would be broken up into two separate two-floor apartments, the lower of which will offer two bedrooms. The higher unit would be a one-bedroom penthouse with a private balcony space in place of a second bedroom. There will also be recreational outdoor space on the roof of the building for all residents.
