Affordable Mixed-Use Building Proposed In Harlem

Bronx-based JCAL Development Group has filed applications for a 15-story, 75-unit mixed-use building at 2395 Frederick Douglass Boulevard, located between West 128th and 129th streets in Harlem. The project will encompass 95,200 square feet and rise 147 feet to its roof, according to the filings. There will be 8,625 square feet of retail space for a ground-floor grocery store, followed by 75 apartments across the second through 15th floors. All of the units, averaging 910 square feet apiece, will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery.

The developer must rezone the property from R7-2 to R8A for a project of this scale, which means the project must proceed through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), including City Council approval. The council seat for the area is currently vacant; a special election is scheduled for February 14. Aufgang Architects is the architect of record, The Real Deal reported. The 9,625-square-foot site is occupied by two low-rise commercial structures. Demolition permits have not been filed.
