Eight-Story, 134-Unit Mixed-Use Project Underway At 2351 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard, Harlem

Back in October of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an eight-story, 134-unit mixed-use building at 2351 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard, in Harlem, and then we brought you renderings of a redevelopment proposal that would have saved the dilapidating Harlem Renaissance Ballroom from demolition. Since then, the ballroom has been demolished, and now developer BRP Companies has landed a $53.2 million loan to build the project, according to Commercial Observer. Construction is reportedly underway, with completion expected in 2017.
