HARLEM, NY — After nearly 10 years of planning and delays, a massive expansion project for Harlem’s Lenox Terrace apartment complex is ready for the city’s public review process.

The City Planning Commission certified a package of land use applications Monday that were filed by Lenox Terrace’s developers, the Olnick Organization, that could double the size of the sprawling complex bounded by Lenox Avenue, Fifth Avenue, West 132nd Street and West 135th Street.

Expansion plans are based off a master plan for the development designed a decade ago by architect Max Bond, a representative of the Olnick Organization said. The developer will construct new towers on the site that will add about 1,600 new apartments, 160,000 square feet of new retail space and six acres of green space.
