35 West 125th Street, Manhattan

By Linecity, March 25, 2022

Permits have been filed for a 21-story mixed-use building at 35 West 125th Street in Manhattan.

The property is located on the north side of 125th Street between Fifth Avenue and Lenox Avenue in Central Harlem, just about one block north of Marcus Garvey Park.

The proposed 195-foot tall development will total 119,060 square feet and include 110,477 square feet of residential space as well as a commercial component of 8,587 square feet. The plans call for 162 residential units.  The average size of an apartment, based on gross numbers, will be about 682 square feet.  The permit makes no mention of parking spaces. 

Mark Irgang of the Irgang Group is listed as the owner behind the application. The architect is listed as Yuriy Menzak of Menzak Architecture. The site is currently occupied by a two-story retail building; a Rite Aid pharmacy previously tenanted the ground floor.

The proposed site is located in the middle of the 125th Street corridor in an area that has seen much development in recent years.  President Bill Clinton’s office, which has been a fixture in the neighborhood for over twenty years, adjoins the site at 55 West 125th Street.

The west side of the neighborhood is serviced by the 2 and 3 trains at the 125th Street station and the east side of the neighborhood is serviced by the 4, 5 and 6 trains at the 125th Street station. The property is within easy walking distance to Marcus Garvey Park, the Apollo Theater and Whole Foods.
