WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — A building made out of prefabricated modular units built offsite — the second to be built uptown in recent years — is headed to the area.

The Lilak, at 655 W. 187th St., will be a 47-unit residential rental building made of modules with what appear to be a pale purple façade, according to plans presented to Community Board 12’s Housing Committee by HAP Investment Developers.

The eight-story building will be shipped to New York in 97 modules built at a Pennsylvania factory that will be assembled on site, project manager Monzer Khafagy told the board.
