East Harlem may be experiencing a renaissance, but the stretch of Park Avenue covered by the elevated Metro-North Railroad tracks remains inhospitable and littered with vacant lots. Now, development may be coming to a barren stretch at 1516 Park Avenue, between 110th and 111th streets.

The site is on the market, and it comes with plans and a design from Karl Fischer. New building applications filed back in December of 2014 call for a 12-story building with 44 apartments, a substantial retail space, and a small community facility. It would break down into 37,931 square feet of residential space, 4,742 square feet of commercial space, and a 739-square-foot community facility. The current plans would include seven studios, 19 one-bedrooms, and 18 two-bedrooms. There would also be large, shared outdoor terraces on the second and 12th floors.
