Construction on a new rental building at 2183 Third Avenue in East Harlem is under way, and 6sqft has obtained renderings of the mixed-use project. The 12-story, 64,000-square-foot building will have 59 units, plus 20,000 square feet of retail space and a medical facility on the ground floor. The site is being developed by Sharon Kahen and Haim Levi, who bought the site (plus neighboring air rights) in 2013 for $3.8 million. The architect is listed as boxy extraordinaire Gerald J. Caliendo.
When The Times wrote about the sale in 2013, it was reported that units would be one- to three-bedrooms, with one-bedrooms starting at $2,500/month. However, with rising rents in the neighborhood, it's likely that those numbers could change when the building is completed early next year.
