As Harlem’s development boom stretches northward, investors are taking aim at the more densely built-out and better preserved blocks in central Harlem. One longtime owner hopes to redevelop a lot at 152 West 140th Street, on the corner of Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard.
Brooklyn-based Stuyvesant Group, headed by Adam Cohen, has filed applications for a six-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 321 West 136th Street, in northern Harlem. The structure will measure 13,024 square feet, of which 2,497 square feet will be used as community facility space on the basement and cellar levels. The five floors above will host full-floor residential units, averaging a spacious 1,706 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Jose Lockhart’s Brooklyn-based Tecnico Engineering is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were filed in January for an existing two-story brick townhouse.
In July of 2015, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the the six-story, 202,361-square-foot commercial-retail project being built at 100 West 125th Street, located on the corner of Malcolm X Boulevard, in Harlem. That October, the structure topped out, and now, the building’s façade appears to be nearly complete, according to Harlem+Bespoke. All six floors, plus the cellar level, will be utilized as retail space, and a number of retailers have already signed leases in the building. Notable tenants include Whole Foods Market, American Eagle, Nordstrom Rack, Burlington Coat Factory, Raymour & Flanigan, Olive Garden, and TD Bank. Wharton Properties, headed by Jeff Sutton, is the developer, while Staten Island-based Gambino + LaPorta Architecture is behind the design. Opening can probably be expected in the coming months.
In June of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 36-unit mixed-use building at 306 West 142nd Street, in northern Harlem. Since then, a rendering has surfaced of the project, and concrete pouring for the foundation is underway, Harlem+Bespoke reports. The structure will encompass 38,991 square feet, of which 2,036 square feet of space will be designated for a ground-floor community facility. The residential units should average 650 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments, and amenities include storage space for 18 bikes, laundry, an outdoor space on the ground-floor, and a rooftop terrace. Montroy Andersen DeMarco is designing, although EDI International is currently serving as the architect of record. Heritage Real Estate Partners is the developer. Completion can probably be expected in 2017.
Back in October of 2015, construction was underway on the ground floor of the eight-story, 54-unit mixed-use building being developed at 275 West 140th Street, in northern Harlem. Now, Harlem+Bespoke reports the structure has topped out, and it appears façade installation is imminent. Dubbed Strivers Plaza, the 64,948-square-foot project will eventually host studio, one-, and two-bedroom rental apartments. Individual units should average 876 square feet apiece, and amenities listed in the Schedule A include recreational rooms, storage for 28 bikes, an outdoor recreational area on the second floor, refuse rooms on each floor, and a rooftop terrace on the seventh floor. An 8,024-square-foot supermarket will occupy most of the ground floor, along with a 498-square-foot community facility. Radson Development is developing and Aufgang Architects is behind the design.
