Gas station lot in South Harlem now fenced off with construction to begin

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.

Million Dollar Listing Caught Filming in Harlem

Harlem more and more is becoming a destination for film and TV.  From “Selling New York“, “Black Ink Crew“, to “Elementary” just to name a few of the more recent shows that have filmed here in Harlem.

Now we can add to the list “Million Dollar Listing” where a crew was spotted filming last week in the neighborhood.  We received an email with a couple of photos from a reader and fan of Harlem, informing us that last Thursday while walking around he came across the filming of Million Dollar Listing which airs on Bravo.

Here is a photo from the filming.  Our source tells us  ”Luis Ortiz is the VP of Keller Williams and also Million Dollar Listing’s new hit star.”
We are not certain who the other gentleman in the photo is but our source is pretty sure he is Robb Pair, President of Harlem Lofts and MANAR.

We look forward to watching this episode when it airs on Bravo this season.
