This very attractive, 8-story building at 70 West 139th Street between Fifth Avenue and Malcolm X Boulevard in Harlem was completed in 2017 and has 64 condominium apartments of which 42 are "affordable." 

It was developed by Parkadon Management & Development, which was founded by Michael Greenberg in 1993, and the New York Housing Partnership. 

It was designed by Peter Franzese and Jorges Montes De Oca of Peter Franzese Design and Engineering, 

The building, which is also known as 560 Lenox Avenue, has a 1,878-square-foot community facility on the ground floor.
