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.

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.

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.

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.

Heard it through the grapevine, One Morningside Park is already 40% sold.  A lot of showings are happening with brokers and clients for this condominium complex.  See our numerous previous posts for detailed information on our Harlem Real Estate Menu.  One Morningside is located on 110th Street and Manhattan Avenue in South Harlem.  Many contracts are out and 1 to 3 bedrooms have already been snatched up by eager buyers.

The sales office is now open by appointment only, to look at available floorplans for sale.   We can provide additional information if you’re interested, here at HarlemCondoLife.  Contact us via email at HarlemCondoLife@gmail.com.   A friend of our blog  just purchased a one bedroom one bath unit.  The fixtures and design looked quite nice and the site has a feature where you can see what the expected view will be from the unit you are interested in.

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.
