It’s not just 4th Avenue that’s growing taller by the day. The corner of 5th Avenue and 17th Street, where there’s currently a parking lot that used to belong to the now-defunct women’s department store Aaron’s, will soon be replaced by a seven-story apartment building.
Brownstoner spotted the new-building permit, which was filed with the Department of Buildings on July 24. The plans say the building will have 17 apartments and seven parking spots, and will be 19,993 square feet and 70 feet tall.
These are not the only potential new residential units coming soon to 5th Avenue, though. Another developer has plans to add 7,500-square-feet of apartments to the old Frost building on 5th at 19th Street.
