We now have confirmation on what will happen with the Harlem gas station at 2040 FDB. It will become an apartment building. We’ve pretty much known all along what was going to happened to the gas station. Details leaked out last August. Read the latest details here.
What we’ve also learned recently is that more than 20 gas station employees were let go right before the holidays. I guess the developer couldn’t wait until January. Grinch!

Harlem real estate continues to amaze me. Development continues even though the entire world feels like a quagmire, with the exception of Manhattan real estate. Look at this building in Harlem on the corner of 110th Street and Manhattan Avenue, which was an abandoned lot! It’s going up so fast and there’s not very many apartments left-unless one has a million dollars. Look at One Morningside Park’s listings! All that’s left to purchase are apartments for $1.2 to $2.2 million. And there’s no guarantee those million dollar apartments have Central Park or Morningside Park views. My guess is those apartments with great park views went first.
With this apartment building going up in this former abandoned lot, can we all agree now that Harlem is one expensive place to buy real estate? Long gone are the days of reasonable apartment deals in Harlem.

With the sale of 1800 Park Avenue completed, we can all now assume that the previously reported plans to develop this area will now move forward.

There is signage up at the recently renovated Harlem building located at 2126 Frederick Douglass Blvd. that says apartments for rent by CitiHabitats. When I went to the website to view the listing, I only saw 5 Harlem apartments listed and get ready for this…the apartments listed range from $4700 for a 4 bedroom/2bath to $4000 for a 3 bedroom/2 bath.
I find that rent to be pricey however, this part of Harlem has experienced the most growth in the last couple of years, it’s known as Harlem’s restaurant row and its nestled between two big parks, ie Central Park North and Morningside Park. If I had to bet, my guess is CitiHabitats will probably get the rent they are asking. What do you think? Is the rent reasonable for these Harlem apartments or “too damn high” as the saying goes?

A residential building with street front commercial space is finally being built at 2272 Frederick Douglass Blvd in Harlem. I use the word finally because this area in Harlem, which was once an abandon lot, construction had started a few years ago and then suddenly stopped-probably due to the 2008 financial crisis is my guess. Now its clear from the scaffolding and signage at the corner of 120th Street and FDB, construction work is well underway.
According to signage on the construction site, the building will have 8 floors and consist of 41 units. PropertyShark states 36 of the 41 units will be residential units. No word on whether this building will be condo or rental! So stay tuned.
