Exterior work has reached completion on 99 Morningside Avenue, a 12-story residential building in Harlem on the eastern border of Morningside Heights. Designed by Ariel Aufgang of Aufgang Architects and developed by Azimuth Development Group, the project contains 23 units with sales handled by Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing and Krantz + Krantz. The homes range from one- to four-bedroom layouts spanning between 560 and 2,300 square feet, with prices running from $770,000 up to $2,750,000.

Recent photos from Tectonic show the finished look of the structure and its signature stepped terraces on the main western elevation. The floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the edifice are surrounded by a mixture of stone and concrete paneling.

Homes are fitted with Bosch kitchen and laundry appliances, in-unit washer and dryer, and oak flooring. Amenities include a part-time doorman, cyber doorman service, a building superintendent, a children’s play area, bicycle storage, and a furnished outdoor sun deck. 99 Morningside Avenue is bound by Morningside Avenue to the west and West 123rd Street to the south. The 125th Street subway station is nearby with access to the A, B, C, and D trains, and the northern tip of Morningside Park is located diagonally across the street.

The development also includes 7,700 square feet of community space allocated toward St. Luke’s Baptist Church, which once stood on the site before the demolition of several other pre-existing structures took hold. Only one brownstone along West 123rd Street managed to avoid being razed after the family sold its air rights to the developer. Thus, 99 Morningside Avenue abuts all three sides of the four-story structure, giving the project a distinctive U-shaped footprint.

  1. What a sad little building wedged in between the hulking 21st century. ?
    Anyhow, I do like the scope of 99 Morningside Avenue. Great!

    • I’d rather live in the little “wedge” building… has more character and charm than the “step ladder”!

  2. Did they put aside any affordable housing for the people in Harlem I’ve been living in for many many years. If not this is just another takeover of Harlem get-rich-quick scheme.

  3. The rats are still visable to those spending this much money.

  4. Yeah why sell the brownstone. Owners may be OG owners or ppl who realoze the home will only grow m9re in value.

    The rental income plus value gains outweifh a one time 2.5 million payout. Plus they pocketed a couple 100 for the air rights.

    Not a bad deal. Matket rate dor 2 bedroom is 3400 at kinimum.

    A cash cow.

  5. This will surely be a tourist attraction as it encompasses the modern NYC with the old NYC. I see this very instagram worthy and I love the look of it.

  6. The wedged brownstone has probably been in the family for generations; fully owned. Stubbornness probably got in the way.
