Located at 2351 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard in Central Harlem, the Rennie has officially launched sales of its 134 condominiums spread over eight stories. Developed by BRP Companies and designed by GF55 Partners, sales will be handled by Halstead Property Development Marketing. There will be studios to three-bedroom residences that start at $580,000, and range up to $1.89 million. The site is located where the Renaissance Ballroom and Casino once stood, with the first two floors of the new building becoming an ode to the rich cultural and architectural history of the original structure.

The amenity spaces were designed by BHDM Desig and include a children’s playroom, a fitness room, a party and entertainment room, bicycle storage and on-site parking and private storage. There is also a rooftop lounge for the residents.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: How much of love there is on me. Say! I love the structure.

  2. Gentrification at its best. Studio starting at $580K. 3 bedroom just short of 2 million. This is unfortunately the way it is.

  3. Wow! The original plans changed from mixed use rentals with 27 units being at below rate. This trend is happening more and more often. Announced at market rate rentals and then changing to full condos.

  4. This is very expensive. Gentrification indeed. Only the rich can afford that and not the people who help build the neighborhood. Sad.

  5. Shame on ALL developers that take over these culturally rich communities and make new housing exclusive not inclusive. Now the building is condos and not rental with a percentage going to low to moderate income? Is this the progressive housing vision for New York?

  6. Shame that the ballroom and casino couldn’t have been restored, and the air rights transferred elsewhere. Here’s what it looked like in its day:

  7. Can someone please share with me how to find a developer who is willing to convert approximately 9000 sq ft. (3 mixed used building/properties) into median rentals, community center and commercial space allowing the original owner to some residential and commercial space

  8. The most amazing thing is that the developer is a minority run business (BRP). I guess anything can happen in this city if lobbying is involved (Meredith Marshall, co-founder of BRP, sits on the board of directors of the New York State Association for Affordable Housing, a trade and lobbying group with a mostly for-profit developer membership.), and being a minority run company doesn’t mean that you are going to serve that community.
