RGS Holdings has partnered with the property owner of 300 West 122nd Street, in Harlem, to develop a 12-story, 127-unit mixed-use building, according to Curbed. The site also includes the two-story building at 223 St. Nicholas Avenue, which will have to be demolished. The new building will measure roughly 161,300 square feet, and features 28,700 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The units will be condominiums, and a slew of amenities are included. PBDW Architects is designing, and the project is expected to be complete in 2017.
Harlem’s renaissance has accelerated in recent years, and large new developments are now seemingly rising all over the neighborhood, from the 125th Street corridor down to East River Plaza. But opportunities for small-scale infill remain in abundance, and YIMBY can now reveal one such project set to rise at 42 East 132nd Street, between Madison and Park, designed by Melamed Architect PC.
Excavation was well underway back in 2013, when YIMBY reported on a large commercial project planned at 5-15 West 125th Street, in central Harlem. Since then, the project’s scope has increased from four to six stories, and also now includes a residential component of 30 units. The block-thru building is expected to have 75,000 square feet of commercial space, spanning from the cellar to the third floor, and the shorter 125th Street side is now getting its façade, per Harlem+Bespoke. The taller end on 126th Street is rising at a slower pace. Rosenbaum Design Group is the architect of record.
Last year, the city’s housing authority announced plans to renovate Randolph Houses in Harlem, a block-long stretch of old law tenements on 114th Street between Frederick Douglass and Adam Clayton Powell Boulevards. Now NYCHA has filed alteration permits to combine 14 of those buildings into a single structure.
With construction now wrapping up on 625 West 57th Street, BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group has already begun transforming the Manhattan cityscape. The firm is also designing the new 200 Greenwich Street, set to rise next to One World Trade Center, and YIMBY can now reveal the first renderings for their Harlem project, which Blumenfeld is developing, at 146 East 126th Street.
