One East Harlem (CityRealty) One East Harlem (CityRealty)
After breaking ground in April 2019, the construction of One East Harlem is nearly topped out and on track to bring hundreds of housing units and a new supermarket to a blossoming corner of East Harlem. The sizeable project now stands 15 stories above the northeast corner of East 125th Street and Third Avenue. It is being developed through a partnership between The Richman Group, Bridges Development Group, and Monadnock Development.
In spring 2019, the building's designer, S9 Architecture released the first rendering showing a muted brick exterior highlighted with antique bronze panels on one or both sides of the standard window components. According to the team, the design is highly evocative of its neighborhood, and the contrast between metal and brick will allow the building to make a distinctive statement.

Of the more than 400 apartments planned for the 19-story building, 300 units will be affordable. Residential amenities will include a fitness center, business center, roof deck, bike room, and on-site parking. Prices and affordable lottery information will be available closer to the building's completion, but CityRealty listings show that East Harlem is a bastion of affordability in Manhattan with a median rent of $2,600/month. Currently, studios are listed at a median of $1,850/month for studios, $2,450/month for one-bedrooms, and $2,788/month for two-bedrooms.

In addition to the new housing units, One East Harlem will bring 65,000 square feet of retail space, which will include 5,000 square feet devoted to local businesses as well as a new Food Bazaar supermarket, and 5,000 square feet of community space that will be home to Groove with Me, an organization offering free dance classes and performance opportunities to young girls. It will be surrounded by 10,000 square feet of public open space. Completion is estimated for 2021.
One East Harlem is a key component of the East 125th Street Development Project, a new mixed-use development rising on the former site of an MTA bus depot. The New York Proton Center, a cutting-edge cancer treatment facility, is an anchor tenant. Next door on the block, a 14-story, 80-unit mixed-use building will rise at 213 East 125th Street.

Across Third Avenue, the Salvation Army is wrapping up construction on a new 233-unit, 12-story supportive housing project at 175 East 125th Street. Next door to that, Blumenfeld Development Group is preparing to launch leasing later this year for apartments at The Smile at 148 East 126th Street.
