Exterior siding is going up on One Morningside Park

photo-3

Previously we posted One Morningside Park in Harlem already 40 Percent Sold, over a month ago.  The other day we noticed  the siding and windows are now being placed along the lower floors in the front.  This process could move quickly but they still have the interior and all of the fixtures inside to finish up which could take several more months.  However, our source connected with the development as well as our broker friend who has sold a couple of units in this building already, both say that they suggest completion by January 2014.  I’d like to be that optimistic but I think that they are going to run over their estimated finis time a bit.  New construction usually does just take for example some of the buildings in this area such as 5th on the Park, the Gateway Towers and The Livmor.

You can visit their website and make an appointment to view floorplans and additional details if you are interested in One Morningside Park.

Pictures of the transportation HUB project, which is slowly taking shape. This transportation center, once completed will be as busy as NYC’s Penn Station. Aside from providing access to PATH trains leading to and from NJ, it will also provide connectivity to over 10 subway lines through a series of underground connections. It will contain retail shops as well, especially with the amount of foot traffic that is envisioned.

One less empty lot in SOHA (South Harlem)

One of what must be one of the few remaining empty lots in South Harlem is no longer.  Construction has begun on 112th Street between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and Manhattan Boulevard.  There is a sign that says affordable housing and another that has a developer contractors listed.  What will it be?

A tall slender tower?  A brownstone?  A prefab of some kind perhaps.  Time will tell.  Anything is possible.

Selling New York – Features Harlem Yet Once Again On HGTV Tonight!

Screen Shot 2013-02-07 at 3.39.08 AM

A friend to our blog let us know that an episode of “Selling New York” will air tonight on the HGTV channel with many Harlem businesses represented.

From what I am told, you can expect to see on this particular episode the very popular 5 and Diamond Restaurant on Frederick Douglass Boulevard, Cedric French Bistro located on 119th Street, and Harlem’s famous Make my Cake on 116th Street.

Here is a clip from an episode of SELLING NEW YORK.

Already a fan of HGTV’s “Selling New York”, “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International” we are especially looking forward to seeing “our Harlem” represented on this new episode of Selling New York.  FYI, this is the third time Harlem has been represented on Selling New York.  We here at HarlemCondoLife are not at all surprised to see more attention coming to Harlem.

Make sure to tune in tonight  to “Selling New York” on HGTV at 6:30pm.
