The Gateway Condominium in Harlem completely visible, a tri-colored building appears

By HarlemGal
2098 Frederick Douglass Blvd, where The Gateway Condo resides, is completely visible to the public now after shedding its entire scaffolding. The big heavy metal frame came down this past Friday (November 19) after several years being up to support the construction of the second phase of the condo project. Pedestrians can immediately see how The Gateway Condo stands 11 stories tall with a tri-color look.

I went to StreetEasy.com to see what apartments were on the market in The Gateway Condo. Streeteasy has about five active listings at the moment. There has to be more soon because the center structure appears to have several apartments inside. Some with unobstructed views of Central Park North, West Harlem, and East Harlem. In my view, it would be nice to have one of those apartments on the 10th or 11th floor with views of more than one park. Ahh. If only, we all had little gold mines!

Take a look for yourself. Walk by this block if you get a chance, especially now with the Fall weather being so gorgeous. See how FDB, in this particular block, looks completely different with the scaffolding down! I like it. The sidewalk is nice and wide! I am sure Society Cafe is pleased as well!

  1. Would be great to see those buildings sold to a responsible private developer, and make the block vital and safer. So many times I’ve been offered drugs on this steet. NYCHA owns the block, and we can see what a horrible job they’ve done of maintaining their buildings on the north side of the street. Ostensibly they will renovate the south-side buildings and move Section 8 tenants back in. My gripe is that criminals should not be entitled to subsidized housing, and there are plenty of criminals living on 114th.

    1. Leron,
      I completely agree with you, it is a dangerous block. Maybe we (concerned neighbors) can donate a surveillance camera to the NYPD to install on 114th, thus monitoring the situation and perhaps providing evidence for arrests. Every night I see dealers congregating in front of and going inside of the 99 cent store on the corner of 114 and 8th until in closes.
      Since the NYCHA has failed to do what their website states “The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) provides decent and affordable housing in a safe and secure living environment for low- and moderate-income residents throughout the five boroughs.”
      Safe and secure?? I think not. Let the developers take over and clean up this street.

  2. Does anyone know what’s going on with the A. Phillip Randolph Houses along 114th st, near FDB? They have been boarded up for a long time now….
