A proposal to significantly improve Harlem‘s massive Lenox Terrace housing complex has begun public review as part of the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure process. Plans call for the addition of mixed-income housing, six acres of green space, and retail to the site located between Lenox Avenue and Fifth Avenue, and from 132nd to 135th Streets. Lenox Terrace comprises over six square blocks and houses more than 4,000 people across six buildings.
Sales have launched at Eleven Hancock, a ground-up condominium building in Harlem. Located at 11 Hancock Place between Morningside Avenue and West 124th Street, the 12-story, 130,000-square-foot building will comprise 71 studio, one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom residences, about half of which will have private outdoor space. Nortco Development is responsible for the project, Issac & Stern for the design, and Lemay + Escobar for the interiors. The property is situated one block to the south of the 125th Street subway station, serviced by the A, B, C, and D trains, and is near the northeast corner of Morningside Park.

Michael Callaghan is listed as the owner behind the applications.

La Hermosa Christian Church may soon begin construction on a new 33-story, mixed-use tower in Central Harlem, at 5 West 110th Street.
