Passing along a real estate update from Robb D. Pair, President of Harlem Lofts, Inc.  From the Polo Grounds to a “field of dreams”, Harlem has come a long way.

From 1998 to the present, here are some real estate charts and status reports and interesting sales statistics from townhouses to condominiums presented by the President of Harlem Lofts, Inc.

A Word From Robb

It has been a couple of months since our last update on One Morningside Park , the new condominium development on West 110th Street and Manhattan Avenue.  Comments are still coming in (both good and not so good) on previous posts while this building continues to go up at lightening speed.  Below is a photo of the building (framed by orange line) from the North side angle looking downtown and towards the West.  As you can see it is already a part of lower Harlem’s skyline.  I believe from our previous posts, it will rise a total of 22 floors upon completion.  That is the “Ariel” on Broadway showing in the background which is a soaring 37 floors.

A Broker (friend to HarlemCondoLife) informed us that he recently went to a courtesy preview of the building and they are going to have 69 units many with outdoor space and dirct views of Morningside Park and Central Park.  The sales office will be open officially in late August.  Stay tuned for future developments on One Morningside Park here at HarlemCondoLife.com.

Construction seems to be moving along  at  240 Manhattan Avenue even with the snow.  It appears they are already up to the 4th or 5th floor level.  If you look at the buildings behind they are almost covered.

Here is a photo from our previous post just a couple months back 240 Manhattan Avenue

While the new potential retail and consumer consumption will be good for the neighborhood businesses and restaurants, comments and concerns are being discussed on the possible blockage of light to buildings in the surrounding areas East of 110th Street.  See comments in our previous post linked above.

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.

240 Manhattan Avenue

We have all been watching and waiting as we previously posted Construction Begins on 110th and Manhattan back in May of 2012, and now things seem to be taking off at a rapid speed.   The name of this project is 240 Manhattan Avenue (by owner: 110 Manhattan Ave Equities LLC.)

This future 22 story condominium on 110th Street and Manhattan Avenue has had a lot of activity lately and the structure is now visible from behind the fence.  After speaking with a gentleman on the listed telephone number at the construction site, he informed me that the building is still scheduled to be completed by January, 2014.

A rendering of the new condo

With this prime location on West 110th and Manhattan Ave.,  240 Manhattan Avenue will provide views of both Central Park and Morningside Park.  It is located just one block away from Frederick Douglass Boulevard Harlem’s Restaurant Row.  There is also a subway entrance on the block as well as Central Market across the street, a Dry Cleaners,  Cafe Amrita and many other conveniences all within an arms reach.

Harlem Condo Life will continue to watch, wait and see if they reach their expected completion date of January, 2014.
