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.

You can visit their website and make an appointment to view floorplans and additional details if you are interested in One Morningside Park.

What new manner of residential or commercial  enterprise will appear here we can only imagine.

We would love to hear from you if you know anything.

After a few days off for the holidays, I am still catching up on my reading about Harlem. Today, I stumbled across this article about low-budget restaurants that stood out in 2010. Out of 15 restaurants listed by The New York Times, Kuti’s, located in Harlem at 355 West 116th Street, was named one of “the best of casual restaurants reviewed in 2010 proved that delicious doesn’t have to mean expensive.”

Kuti’s opened up in the first business quarter of 2010 (March) and is owned by Abdhul Traore, who also happens to be the chef!

Congrats to Kuti’s in Harlem and Mr. Traore on the accolade. May there by many more!
