Down to 4 units left in One Morningside Park they are almost sold out.  The penthouse unit with sweeping views of both Central & Morningside Parks, is selling for a mere $5,900,000 with two terraces.  This building hit the ground running as one of the most desirable new properties in South Harlem on the market.  People who bought over a year and a half ago during construction have already resold with high profits on their investments.

The same developers are now focusing on their latest project one block over the neighboring property nicknamed as the gas station lot.   Located on the south, east corner of 110th and Frederick Douglass Boulevard it is the last lot left on Central Park in New York City.    Ground has already broken and a sales office will open soon with floorpans of units ready to sell.   The higher units with unobstructed city / park views will undoubtedly become the priciest condos in Harlem.

Gas station lot in Harlem HarlemCondoLife

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.

A large crane was spotted the other day at One Morningside Park in Harlem on 110th Street and Manhattan Ave.  The exterior of the building looks to be near completion, however there still seems to be a lot of work needed to finish the interior.   The original date we posted here at HCL for construction to be finished was by January 2014.  I think by March/April or even summer of 2014 is more realistic .  The building is over 50 percent sold with pricey units offering views of Morningside Park and Central Park many with balconies.

We will continue to keep you updated with progress reports on this condominium complex.  For more information on previous posts on One Morningside Park and other Harlem developments, please visit Harlem Condo Life and click on the Harlem Real Estatemenu item.

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.

One of what must be one of the few remaining empty lots in South Harlem is no longer.  Construction has begun on 112th Street between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and Manhattan Boulevard.  There is a sign that says affordable housing and another that has a developer contractors listed.  What will it be?

A tall slender tower?  A brownstone?  A prefab of some kind perhaps.  Time will tell.  Anything is possible.

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 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.

Coming out of the B/C subway line at 110th Street heading north, I quickly noticed there was construction happening at 2052 Frederick Douglass Blvd., which use to be Grand Liquors Inc. in Harlem. I quickly asked what was going into this space. The first response I received “it’s going to be a bank branch.” Then someone else on site said “it’s going to be a check cashing place.” Darn to both responses. I was hoping for something else, say a diner or Thai food. Wouldn’t that be good to have another food joint on Frederick Douglass Blvd?

The construction site we first told you about awhile back, continues to make building progress in the lot right next to 67 Orange and two spaces away from the new restaurant opening soon on FDB! Today, at 2080 FDB they had the gates wide open! From the pics, they drilled fairly deep. It appears they are placing layers of concrete down along with those finder steal poles!

There goes another vacant lot to condos on FDB!.  A lot is happening on and around this little blvd of ours in Harlem!
