Pre snowstorm we took these photos of the Gas Station lot on 110th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard showing that it is now completely fenced off, boarded up and waiting for construction to begin.
There seems to be a variety of articles about what the development will be (rentals, condos, both), what it will include (affordable units, how many, community space, etc), and so on. See our previous posts for the backstory here.
It would seem that this lot – which represents the last real estate property left along Central Park (West, South, East and North), will more likely be a new construction condominium complex. A reliable professional source to HarlemCondoLIfe in real estate who is always ahead of the curve on many stories, agrees with this assessment. There are several recent precedents for this configuration. For example Fifth On the Park on 120th Street and 5th Avenue along Marcus Garvey Park includes condominiums, affordable rentals and a community church.
Stay tuned for more on this property in our Harlem Real Estate section.
One Morningside Park (update June 2013)
One Morningside Park, which we have been following and writing about since May of 2012 when it was an empty lot formerly known as 240 Manhattan Avenue, is now growing higher and faster each day. They now have a website, contact information and real estate brokers available to discuss the future units, ONE MORNINGSIDE PARK
One of our first photos…
And where they stand today…
Construction already on the 6th floor and starting on the 7th they are visibly working at a faster pace. We will continue to document the progress on One Morningside Park and share new information with you as it is presented to us. This is going to be a 22 story condiminium located on 110th Street with Central Park and Morninside park views. Many of the higher units will in addition have outdoor space.
See our previous posts on One Morninside Park (formerly referred to as 240 Manhattan Ave) for the history of this new development.

Update On One Morningside Park
Construction Begins On 110th Street
UPDATE: One Morningside Park (most recent June 2013)
Contemporary luxury spacious homes are still available on West 123rd Street at Windows On 123. Although only a few available Loft units remain (their website indicates 3 with 1 in contract) priced over 1 million, they are loaded with top-tier surfaces and amenities, balconies, private yards and many with private keyed elevator entries. Visit Availability.
What you see at WINDOWS ON 123 is extraordinary: homes dressed in fine finishes; wall-to-wall banks of crystal clear glass that capture abundant natural light; exceptionally generous floorpans; and all the conveniences one expects from a luxury residence.
But what you can’t see at WINDOWS is equally outstanding.
You can’t see the countless hours of designing, planning, and immaculate construction poured into every square foot to make it the perfect place to live. You can’t see the sound-proofing between each home; the modern infrastructure built for your needs now, and for the future. You can’t see the seamless craftsmanship that secures every piece of masonry, cabinetry, tile, stone, and hardwood flooring.
With 26 glorious, sun-filled, exceptionally spacious homes, 117W123 is the absolute fulfillment of contemporary luxury. Floor plans that break all of Manhattan’s rules; amenities and finishes that surpass every expectation.
Construction has begun on the corner of West 110th Street and Manhattan Avenue. The lot has been vacant for sometime as the previous building was demolished a few years back and finally a crane has appeared and the ground has been broken.
I spoke with one of the workmen and asked him what will be going up here he replied “Condos” (surprise). I had dinner with someone at Melbas recently and met one of the developers for this building who had mentioned construction would begin shortly. I believe there will also be retail space which will add to the businesses on this strip, the Bike Shop, Dry Cleaners and Cafe Amrita.
More on this story as it develops.
