Exterior siding is going up on One Morningside Park


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.

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.
