Update: Gas station on 110th and Central Park West to become apartments

bp gas station harlem As previously reported, New York City Economic Development Corporation has taken the former BP gas station in Harlem on 110th and FDB in Harlem’s SOHA for development as a mixed-use project with more than 50 apartments. Artimus Construction, the developer behind One Morningside Park, won a request-for-proposal process that began in February.

The project will be a 125,000-square-foot mixed-use project on 2040 Frederick Douglass Boulevard site.  It will include a new 8,600-square-foot space for the Harlem-based Millennium Dance Company. Most of the building will go to apartments.  Twenty percent or more must be affordable. The 8,000-square-foot retail space, will most likely house a restaurant – another addition to Harlem Restaurant Row.
