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.
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.
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.
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.
Three weeks ago we first reported that construction had begun “Construction Begins” on 110th street and Manhattan Avenue for a new Condominium. Well we now have an update with the final design of Manhattan Tower and information from GF55 Partners. It appears the condo tower will stand 22 stories high making it the tallest new development in South Harlem in the last couple of years. I believe 5th On the Park is the tallest. At this time being referred to as Manhattan Tower it will offer a total of 69 units with direct Central Park views.
Only three weeks back there was one crane on the site and there are now two. This is a good sign that construction is moving along nicely towards a final completion date of January 2014.
We will continue to keep you posted on South Harlem’s newest development.
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.
