Here’s our first look at Heritage Real Estate Partners’ 23-story, 108-unit residential building underway at 1399 Park Avenue in East Harlem. Designed by Goldstein Hill & West Architects (GHWA), the 253-foot tall, glass and cast-stone tower is expressed as a stack of variably-sized, staggered volumes creating numerous terraces that face north towards the East River and west towards Central Park. Fittingly, Heritage has filed permits under the alias “Heritage on the Park LLC,” possibly hinting at the official name for the tower.
The Jeremy Markowitz-led firm purchased the East Harlem lot at the corner of 104th Street and Park Avenue for $12 million in December of last year. Markowitz told The Real Deal in March that the site took three years to assemble and that he purchased air rights from two neighboring lots. The project overlooks New York Restoration Project’s 103rd Street Community Garden, whose 2004 and 2011 renovation was sponsored by the Walt Disney Company.

While unconfirmed, the tower will most likely contain rentals, and the submitted occupancy schedule indicates that a non-profit institution will occupy its first four levels. Residential amenities will include 54 parking spaces, bike storage, a lounge, outdoor terraces, and a game room.
