Einhorn, recently rebranded as Grid Group, has planned to erect a 13-story, 55,854-square-foot building with 36 apartments at 145 West 110th Street in Harlem, according to permits filed Aug. 16 and first reported by The Real Deal. Peter Gluck has been tapped to design the building.

The lot is just over 7,000 square feet and includes just under 43,000 square feet of development space, according to PropertyShark.

The location is the former site of a New York United Sabbath Day Adventist Church, which moved to 17 West 128th Street in 2013. Emmut Properties bought the site from the church in June 2013 for just over $11 million, records show. Just a few months later in October 2013, Emmut sold the site to Einhorn for $16.5 million, a nearly $5 million profit.

Yiannes Einhorn of Einhorn Development did not immediately respond to inquiries. An official at IDB Bank could not immediately be reached.
