With Harlem’s 125th Street seeing a proliferation of new developments in recent years, it should come as no surprise that twenty blocks to the north, the 145th Street Corridor is also growing once again. Building applications have been filed for an eight-story building at 210 West 145th Street, between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and Adam Clayton Powell Jr Boulevard, on a lot that is currently vacant.
West Harlem has been booming with infill development over the past few years, and YIMBY recently revealed two new residential buildings coming to Convent Avenue, in the immediate blocks northwest of West 125th Street. Now, renderings are out for another new project in the neighborhood, at 370 West 125th Street, between Morningside and St. Nicholas Avenues.
A badly dilapidated home at 217 West 123rd Street is about to meet the wrecking ball to make way for a brand new development. Applications filed for the site, located between Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd and Frederick Douglass Blvd in the heart of Harlem, show that the house will be replaced by a six-story and 9,927 square foot residential building, divided amongst six units, for a condo-sized average size of almost 1,700 square feet. Henry Radusky of Bricolage Designs is the architect of record, John Khani of Hitech, LLC/Big Apple Developers is listed as the developer, and demolition permits for the existing structure have yet to be pulled.
Yesterday, YIMBY revealed a new condominium project coming to 17 Convent Avenue, on the corner of West 128th Street. Today, we have the first renderings for another condo building by the same developer just two blocks up, at 52 Convent Avenue, on the southwest corner of West 130th Street.
Back in April of 2015, YIMBY reported on the filing of new building applications for a long-forlorn site at 17 Convent Avenue, on the corner of West 128th Street, in West Harlem. Later that year we featured preliminary drawings of what the lot would yield, and now, we have the actual reveal for the project, which is going to result in remarkably attractive infill.
