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.

So if you are in the market for a rental, check it out.

August 26, 2010 was filled with interesting surprises! For the last two years, the rental market in New York has been favorable toward renters, but now that has apparently changed. According to The Wall Street Journal, rental activity levels in Manhattan continue to heat up. The article mentions Harlem and reports that prices on studios with doormen are on the rise in Harlem. They’re up around 5 percent. Wow. How did that happen?  What happened to the double dip recession? I guess it bypassed the NY rental market!

After I read that article, I turn around and read an email from a reader telling me Marcus Samuelsson released photos on his website about the latest construction happenings with Red Rooster.  Along with the pictures, Samuelsson states he is “super excited for the opening and it feels like the community is sharing in the excitement too!” Awh…that’s nice. I just hope the opening of Red Rooster is soon!

See what happens in a course of a day. The rental market heats up and Red Rooster pictures appear! Only in New York…right?

The West-most corner of Harlem north of 116th (who some call South Harlem and others call Upper West Side) will be getting little busier.   A new rental building called Susan Court appears to be ready for occupancy. Renters will become residents and will become shoppers, eaters, park goers, etc. For more information check out the web site. http://www.454manhattan.com/
