101 Lincoln Avenue is a mixed-use market-rate residential building occupying an entire city block at the foot of the Third Avenue Bridge. On the Harlem River, the site has historically served as a freight transfer depot for rail, boats, and trucks. The property has 500' of waterfront frontage and will feature a 25,500 square feet waterfront public access area. The building will integrate its surroundings with multiple entry points: a residential entry courtyard from Lincoln Avenue for pedestrians and vehicles, a residential lobby entrance at Bruckner near Third, and retail access from all four corners.
The building consists of 849 rental units with indoor and outdoor amenities, four retail spaces, 423 indoor attendant parking spaces, and a community facility. The entire project has a total above-and-below grade area 940,545 gross square feet
The building composition consists of three stand-alone 24-story towers and one 22-story tower, growing out of a 6-and 7-story podium. The entire structure, constructed of reinforced cast-in-place concrete, sits on a common cellar. At the center is a landscaped entry courtyard open to Lincoln Avenue and set two feet above the 100-year flood plain. The courtyard gives access to the two lobbies, each serving two towers, and an entrance to the multi-level parking garage.
