Rental Building News and Offers

The Victoria Theater has been a vibrant part of the Harlem community since 1917, first as a vaudeville hall and later as a movie theater. The space was carved into five smaller theaters after the state took over the space in 1977, and the Empire State Development Corporation (ESD) and Harlem Community Development Corporation (HCDC) issued a request for proposals in 2004. The 2008 recession delayed construction of the winning proposal, and the more recent coronavirus pandemic delayed progress after the building topped out in fall 2019. However, the building is just about complete and leasing is underway for the 191 apartments that comprise its residential component.
Market-rate rents start at $2,633/month for studios, $3,413/month for one-bedrooms, and $4,372/month for two-bedrooms. As a grand opening incentive, the leasing team is offering renters one month free on 13-month leases. CityRealty listings show that median rents in Harlem clock in at relatively approachable price of $2,695 per month.

All studio through two-bedroom units feature extra-large windows, hardwood floors, open-concept living areas and kitchens, generous closet space, and central heating and air conditioning. The kitchens come equipped with stainless steel GE appliances, and select units have granite countertops and center islands. The baths have soaking tubs.
At 27 stories and 340 feet high, the redevelopment is the tallest building in central Harlem. The design by Aufgang Architects offers two distinctive entrances for each component. The hotel and cultural center’s entrance features a sleek glass tower looming behind the restored facade of the old theater. The residential entrance is more consistent with Harlem’s historic aesthetic, and features masonry details and neat rows of picture windows.

Residential amenities include a fitness center, laundry room, lounge with game area, on-site parking, and rooftop access. Residents will also benefit from living in the heart of Harlem near the Apollo Theater, the National Jazz Museum, and the new Studio Museum building. Prominent local restaurants like Sylvia’s, Melba’s, Red Rooster, Minton’s, and Harlem Nights are close by, as are Whole Foods and other local retail and conveniences. The A/B/C/D and 2/3 subway stops, not to mention the MetroNorth train and M60 bus, allow for an easy commute anywhere.
The rental apartments share the space with a Renaissance Marriott hotel with a club lounge, meeting rooms, a fitness center, and restaurants; according to the New York Post, it is the first hotel to be built in Harlem in over 85 years. The complex also includes a cultural arts center to feature programming from the Apollo Theater as well as other local cultural organizations.
