Compilation of a few new Harlem developments Compilation of a few new Harlem developments
Updated 10/27/2022 to include 1727 Amsterdam Avenue, 35 West 125th Street, 2335 12th Avenue, and 110 West 123rd Street.

There have been anecdotes about Harlem being the neighborhood to watch for years, and numbers are emerging to back up these claims. The New York Times reported that Harlem's average home prices have increased by 2.3 percent over the past five years, with buyers being especially partial to two-bedroom homes. A CityRealty report from July 2020 put Harlem as one of the few neighborhoods that experienced price increases since January 2020. More recently, CityRealty's Q2 2022 market report found Harlem condo 300 West among the top performers in terms of the number of contracts signed.

Harlem's rich history is a powerful lure for prospective residents, and there is an eye on the future as well. Earlier this month, the Apollo Theater announced that it had raised the funds for a transformative restoration of the world-famous venue. Beyer Blinder Belle is in charge of the project, which will include an exterior update, new lobby with cafe and bar, restored orchestra pit, upgraded seats, lighting, and audio. Construction is expected to commence in spring 2024, and the first performances are expected to begin a year later. In the interim, programming will take place at the Victoria Theater.

Earlier this summer, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka's Harlem townhouse set a new record when it sold for $6.99 million. On the apartment side, the penthouse at Circa Central Park still holds the record for the most expensive condo sale above 96th Street on the West Side, and 102nd on the East Side. The five-bedroom penthouse with two terraces looking out over Central Park closed for $9.45 million. The penthouse came with a 25-year tax abatement, something no longer available to new luxury buildings and is estimated to be worth more than $2 million in tax savings over 25 years.

Given the recent condo building boom, it remains to be seen how much longer the penthouse will hold onto that title. In 2008, a rezoning allowed for taller buildings to rise along 125th Street. According to The New York Times, at least 10 projects valued between $14M and $95M grew along the street in less than a decade of the new zoning regulations. Since then, a veritable building boom has taken place. Below, see some of the most exciting projects to take shape in recent years, many of which are now welcoming residents.

Shortly after permits were filed for a new nine-story building at 1727 Amsterdam Avenue (h/t Crain's New York Business), renderings were revealed of a building with yellow and beige cladding, floor-to-ceiling windows on the ground floor, and oversized windows for the units on top. The site is currently home to the Heritage Health Care Center, and the new project will incorporate an ambulatory healthcare facility on the first floor as well as space for the Emma L. Bowen Community Service Center.

Of the apartments on top, 120 will be used as supportive housing. The remaining 80 will serve low-income New Yorkers, with 25% of these set aside for seniors. Construction is expected to take four to five years.

In March 2022, developer Mark Irgang filed permits for a 144,000-square-foot, 195-foot-tall building at 35 West 125th Street. The new building will feature retail space, room for an art gallery, and 162 residential units. The site is currently home to a two-story commercial building, but the demolition and construction timeline is not yet available.

In June 2022, just before the end of the 421-a tax break program, permits were filed for a new residential building near the Manhattanville Columbia University campus. There will be commercial space on the ground floor, and 30% of the apartments on top will be affordable. A three-story warehouse is currently on the site, but demolition permits have not yet been filed.

In October 2019, the City Planning Commission voted to approve an application to develop a new 29-story tower at 5 West 110th Street. The site is currently occupied by La Hermosa Christian Church, which is considered the oldest Latino church on the East Coast. However, it has deteriorated to the point of inaccessibility and would have to be demolished. Plans for the new building call for a redeveloped church, a music hall, a music school with free children's classes run by the Manhattan School of Music, and approximately 160 housing units, a percentage of which would be affordable.

In October 2020, permits were filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 2535 Frederick Douglass Boulevard, which is currently a vacant lot. An average unit size of 1,711 square feet is indicative of condos, and there will be no more than three apartments on every floor. The site was previously home to the Healing from Heaven Temple, and a house of worship is planned for the first and lower levels.

The Harlem Baptist Church was damaged in a 1965 fire, partially demolished in 2009 after a crack appeared in the facade, and a full demolition is on the horizon. But this isn't the end for the congregation - on the contrary, the church will occupy 5,800 square feet on the cellar and ground floor of the sleek new building to rise on its site. The glass building with vertical columns will also house 28 residential units on upper floors.

5th on the Park is currently Harlem's tallest finished building, but it will soon be overshadowed by a 42-story tower planned for a lot adjacent to the iconic Apollo Theater. Renderings and descriptions call for a grade-level church with a separate entrance, a theater on the first through third levels, and 34 floors of apartments on top. A construction timeline is not yet available.

Construction is underway on the new building rising on the site of the National Black Theater. However, this is not the end of one of the oldest Black theaters in the country. On the contrary, a key component of the project is a new home for the theater on floors 2-4, featuring a 50-seat flexible temple space, a 99-seat studio theater, classrooms, and offices. Developer Ray is working with the National Black Theater on an Artist Housing initiative that will create better housing for artists and creatives. A portion of units has been designated affordable, and Gotham to Go suggests that these will be for households earning 40, 50, and 130 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI).

The project has the blessings of Community Board 11 and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer; moreover, it is located in the Special 125th Street District, which gives developers a bonus of four square feet of extra floor area for every square foot of arts space within the project.

In March 2021, a groundbreaking ceremony took place for the Urban League Empowerment Center, a new development set to include the new national headquarters for the National Urban League. The project is also set to bring 170 units of affordable and supportive housing for New Yorkers making 30 to 80 percent of the area median income, as well as the Urban Civil Rights Museum, which will focus on the contributions of civil rights activists in the northern half of the United States. Roughly 70,000 square feet of office space will be for several locally based non-profits, including the United Negro College Fund, 100 Black Men Inc., and Jazzmobile. Finally, Target has signed a lease for 44,000 square feet of retail space in the new development, and Harlem's first Trader Joe's will take 28,000 square feet of retail space on the lower level. Construction topped out in February 2022, and exterior work is winding down at a pace that suggests the estimated 2023 completion date is well on track.

In November 2021, a groundbreaking ceremony took place for Homeward Central Harlem, which will exclusively serve unhoused youth between the ages of 18 and 24 in an LGBTQ-affirming community. The new building will stand 85 feet high, and the rendering shows a tasteful gray brick facade with oversized windows. There will be six apartments per floor.

Homeward NYC will offer on-site housing and social work services, and residents will have access to amenities like a gym, lounge, laundry room, and roof deck. Completion is estimated for fall 2023.

Permits were filed in April 2020 calling for a 10-story, 172-foot-tall building designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill; since then, the design has been named one of the winners of the Public Design Commission in the City of New York's 39th Annual Awards for Excellence in Design. The new building is designed to accommodate testing and services for a wide range of clinical and environmental health concerns, and will enhance the city’s ability to respond to public health challenges.

A pedestrian-scaled masonry podium will feature essential support functions, the laboratory’s administrative functions, the hospital’s community-facing program, and a green roof. On top, five floors of state-of-the-art laboratory space will be housed in a glass and metal-clad volume, which steps up to accommodate various laboratory sizes.

The new building is targeting LEED certification, and is well on track to meet that goal with such components as ultra-efficient laboratory equipment, solar photovoltaic panels, chilled beams, and a cogeneration plant. In response to the realities of climate change, all critical building systems will be above the current 100-year flood plain. The building is also a participant in the city’s 80x50 program, which is committed to achieving an 80 percent carbon emissions reduction by the year 2050.

As of this writing, an affordable housing lottery is underway for 51 units at 224 West 124th Street. Early reports suggested these would be for low- and median-income households, but New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the AMI qualify for this one. An array of amenities includes a fully equipped gym with yoga/dance studio, a sauna, a children's playroom, a pet spa, a business lounge, a party/recreation room, a bike room, and a garage with electric car charging stations. A local developer and designer are at the helm of the project, which will also feature a 3,000-square-foot community facility, 3,500 square feet of retail space.

Alas, sometimes Harlem's rising star can come at the expense of historic architecture. Such is the case at 321 West 136th Street, where a quaint Victorian building served as stables and later a neighborhood school before demolition permits were filed in 2016. Its red brick successor will feature full-floor units with private balconies, but not inspire the same sense of awe.

When it is complete, it will feature a 3,000-square-foot community facility at the base and 29 rental-sized units on top.

Floors 2 through 8 will hold two units each and they will be relatively spacious, with an average size of nearly 900 square feet apiece. It hasn't been announced if these will be rentals or condos, but an offering plan has not been filed yet, if at all. Amenities will include a laundry room, seven bike parking spaces, balconies, and a private courtyard. Nearby destinations include Morningside Park, Best Market Harlem, Starbucks, and an eclectic mix of popular restaurants like Les Ambassades, Vinateria, and Harlem Tavern.

The Studio Museum of Harlem set up in a Classically-styled building that once housed the New York Bank for Savings, but would soon outgrow the space: A larger space was announced in 2015, and the demolition of the previous structure commenced in February 2020. Construction is in progress on the new space, which will bring more than 17,000 square feet of gallery and exhibition space, the better to allow the museum to showcase its 2,000-object permanent collection. There will also be a glass-fronted lobby, studio space for three artists-in-residence, education spaces, a cafe, and free roof area.

When developer Raphael Santandreu bought a vacant Harlem lot from the city for only one dollar, it was widely assumed that an affordable housing block would rise on the site.

All units feature oversized windows, elegant and efficient kitchens, thoughtfully designed baths, and in-unit washer/dryers.

The long wait for the redevelopment of Harlem's Victoria Theater is drawing to a close - construction is winding down, and leasing has launched on the rental apartments inside. Of the 191 rental apartments, 50% will be offered at “affordable” rents to middle- and low-income households. All units feature extra-large windows, hardwood floors, open-concept living areas and kitchens, and soaking tubs in the baths. Amenities include a fitness center, laundry room, lounge with game area, and rooftop terrace.

The 340-foot-tall building is the tallest building in Central Harlem with a distinct façade for the tower’s separate wings. The hotel will be clad in a sheer glass façade that will loom behind the preserved façade of the old theater building. The residential portion will be dressed in masonry and sport neat rows of picture windows — consistent with Harlem’s overall vernacular. The three-story 125th Street façade adorned with Ionic columns and terra-cotta rosettes have been salvaged and will be adaptively reused as part of a new entryway. In addition to the apartments, the building features a 210-key Renaissance Marriott Hotel, 30,000 square feet of retail, 25,000 square feet earmarked for art and cultural institutions, and a 90-vehicle garage.

Taystee-Lab-Building-01 Taystee Lab Building via Janus Properties
After the Taystee Bakery closed in the 1970's, the site sat vacant for years until the Janus Property Company embarked on a new commercial and office corridor in Upper Manhattan. The new project brings an industrial aesthetic to a contemporary design, and has been transformed into a state-of-the-art, LEED-certified life sciences building. Two lobbies will provide convenient access and be awash in incredible natural light; upstairs, several of the office's interiors will open to expansive terraces. The infrastructure includes high capacity power, high-velocity ducts, acid waste neutralization systems, and designated locations for tenant emergency generators.

Following a recent investment from the LifeSciNYC initiative, City College of New York is using its $15 million award to establish the City Innovations Collaborative, an incubator supporting commercial and academic research under one roof at the Taystee Lab Building. Spread over 36,000 square feet, the City Innovations Collaborative will offer early-stage life sciences companies wet and dry lab space for the development of new medications and medical devices.

Following the demolition of a series of one-story buildings on West 145th Street, an environmental assessment review was submitted for One 45, a new mixed-use development with a 85-foot-tall base and two 363-foot-high towers. The project called for new headquarters for Reverend Al Sharpton's National Action Network, a new Museum of Civil Rights, ground-floor retail, banquet/event space, and approximately 866-939 residential units (217-282 of which would be affordable). However, local officials found that the affordability levels weren't in line with their constituents' needs, and the developer withdrew their project ahead of a subcommittee vote in May 2022. Patch predicts condos for the site instead.
