YORKVILLE — Plans for an 18-story condominium tower with a lounge, garage, exercise studio and game room were filed with the city's Department of Buildings last month.
The new tower, which will reach 210 feet, will replace a six-story apartment building at 40 East End Ave. bearing the words "A.D. 1906" on its façade.
Lightstone Group, which bought the building for $32.5 million, declined to comment Friday on the project. But plans filed on Oct. 30 show a range of amenities in the 29-unit building, including 10 enclosed parking spots, a game room and space to exercise, records show.
Gerner Kronick & Valcarcel is the architect named in the records.
Residents of the building will have to move out before demolition begins, according to the plans.
Those living in the 40 apartments above the store did not answer a reporter's doorbell rings on Friday.
A Gristedes grocery store currently sits on the ground level.
Gristedes did not immediately return a call for comment on Friday about Lightstone Group's plans.
The grocery chain's CEO, John Catsimatidis, said that store will likely close in early 2016.
Plans for demolition of 40 East End Ave. have been filed with the city, but have not yet been approved.
