La Hermosa Christian Church may soon begin construction on a new 33-story, mixed-use tower in Harlem, at 5 West 110th Street, reports New York Yimby. Details within a dense environmental assessment statement prepared for the Department of City Planning reveal the very first renderings of the building, which would require several zoning amendments and waivers before breaking ground.
The requested zoning amendments include modification of structural height and setback regulations, a waiver for all required parking components, and modified zoning text to designate a Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) area.
The proposed building is designed by FX Collaborative and could eventually top off 410 feet above the ground. Residential floor area would measure 194,182 square feet with 160 total units. Exactly 48 of those units would be designated permanently affordable apartments for households at or below 80 percent area median income. La Hermosa Christian Church would also occupy 37,647 square feet within the building.
If approved, construction would last approximately 22 months. Documents list the anticipated date of completion as 2022.
