The Real Deal reports increased activity Harlem at building including The Douglass, Windows on 123, the Livmor and Parc StandardLast.
Price cuts on the units in those buildings have resulted in some units selling for less than $500 per square foot.
t, the 72-unit Livmor, the 28-unit Parc Standard and the 38-unit Douglass, all on Frederick Douglass Boulevard, are sold out. The 73-unit co-op 88 Morningside is 71 percent sold. The 86-unit Gateway is 90 percent sold. Windows on 123 is on its second phase of sales.
A few years ago, in 2008 HarlemGuy at a blog meeting for HarlemCondoLife with 6 bloggers present at the meeting in front of witnesses, came up with and coined Frederick Douglass Boulevard from 110 to 125th Street as “Harlem Restaurant Row“. Which since has become a signature phrase credited to Harlem Condo Life.

Did anyone see the supplement in The New York Times last week featuring the new condo developments in Harlem? It mentions The Livmor, Ellington on the Park, 2280 Frederick Douglass, and The Apex inside The Aloft Hotel.
I know these supplements can be a bit cheesy and there is no editorial involvement. However, in this particular case I want to say the banner rings true for me as well as the quote from Arthur Barnes of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem. "I think it is better to define the current phase of development in Harlem as a reawakening." Nicely said Mr. Barnes!
I have only seen hardcopies of this supplement. No luck finding an electronic version. If anyone has an electronic copy, feel free to share!
