A three-story commercial brownstone on Harlem’s 125th Street is set for a residential conversion and expansion.

26 East 125th Street, located between Fifth and Madison avenues, will gain three floors, according to the plan exam application filed March 17th. The converted building will have 16 apartments total and measure about 15,000 square feet, with retail on the ground floor. S&S Architectural Design is the architect of record.

The developer is All Year Management, which purchased the property last month for $5.3 million, according to public records. The elevator building was listed last year with an asking price of $6.5 million. The first floor was formerly home to a Salvation Army store. Scouting NY has a neat write-up of the building’s history, including the explanation behind the enigmatic red “Trowel & Square Ballroom” sign.
