Permits for developer Ian Bruce Eichner's 32-story East Harlem tower at 1800 Park Avenue were disapproved back in July, and now new permits have been filed for a 24-story building at the site. Even with the significant (25 percent) height reduction it will still be the tallest building in Harlem, overtaking the 19-story Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building. Oddly, old permits that called for a 24-story building listed the height as 525 feet, which doesn't seem right since the 32-story version was supposed to be 352 feet (and also because that would make for some very high ceilings). Something in the 250-300 range is more likely.
