New major development coming to Washington Heights

The Chetrit family is eyeing a Washington Heights development site with plans to construct one of the tallest residential buildings in the neighborhood, The Real Deal reports.

Brothers Eli and Isaac Chetrit, and their development partner Jacob Aini, are in contract to buy 622-628 West 153rd Street for $30 million where they intend to build a 28-story, 135,000-square-foot luxury residential project, sources told The Real Deal.

The project would join a handful of other major developments on the horizon in the uptown neighborhood, including a 22-story hotel, office, and retail project at 2420 Amsterdam Avenue and a seven-story, mixed-use development at 4452 Broadway with ground floor retail and 129 apartments, 30 percent of which will be set aside as affordable housing.
