The Commercial Observer reported last week that Tribeca Pediatrics is opening up a branch in Harlem. Tribeca Pediatrics signed a 10-year, 2,500-square-foot lease at 2111 Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Harlem, which most of us know as the 99 cent store.
The reason for the upscale facility coming to Harlem? According to Douglas Elliman’s retail group team Faith Hope Consolo, who represented both the landlord, Tahl-Propp Equities, and the tenant in the transaction told National Real Estate Investor that “just as Starbucks is a marker for an emerging neighborhood, a sophisticated pediatric clinic is a sign it has arrived. This now coveted corner is transitioning from a 99 cents store to a cutting-edge medical facility for children.”

New Street Realty Advisors, LLC announced today the successful lease transaction between Standing Tall, Inc., a school for non‐verbal children with physical impairments, and Mitchell Enterprises, the owners of 101 West 116th Street Realty, Corp. The site, located at the northwest corner of West 116th Street and Lenox Avenue in Central Harlem, is composed of a 10,000 square foot on the second floor with a dedicated entrance on the ground floor, fronting West 116th Street. Standing Tall will take occupancy of the space immediately and anticipates an opening this spring.
Since its inception in 1997, Standing Tall is a special education school that provides the unique environment, experts, technology, and experiences needed to provide non‐verbal children with physical impairments a path of true communication and learning. Standing Tall serves all non‐verbal children, ages 5 through 21 with a brain injury, neuro‐motor disorder and neurological disease.
Standing Tall has been on the hunt for a new space for the past two years, having outgrown its location at 200 Riverside Blvd. on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The board was on the verge of closing the school until New Street Realty Advisors stepped in, helping the school create a leasing strategy and securing the new location in Central Harlem.

A few days ago I received a message along with a picture in my inbox asking: what is going on with the commercial space where Harlem Vintage was located? The photo sent in by a reader reveals there is sign up on the old Harlem Vintage Space that says “For Lease.”
Most of us know that Harlem Vintage closed a few months ago so I can only assume the owner of the commercial space is looking for a new tenant. Does anyone else know more about the old Harlem Vintage commercial space? If so, please share!
The Victoria Theater Project is moving closer to becoming a reality. On September 26, Real Estate Weekly reported that Danforth Developers, the developers behind the project, picked Aufgang & Subotovski as the designers of the commercial and residential project. The article also states that construction is “slated to begin early next year.”
Fast forward to this week and we have the Globe St. And The New York Observer reporting that there are more changes to the design plans. The Empire State Development Corporation approved plans for two 26-story towers: a 230-unit apartment tower and a 210-room hotel versus the previously planned 140-unit rental tower and 175-room hotel.
So in 2014 or 2015, West 125th Street will have two new towers that will be the tallest buildings in Harlem. Stay tuned.

According to The New York Post this morning (Aug 20), the owners of the Harlem gas station on 110th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd have been busy fighting off the City of New York from taking over their property.
The article states that Carmie Elmore and a partner took over the gas station in 1981 when Harlem was seedy. Now that Harlem is hot and has been on an upward trajectory for a while, the city apparently owned it at one time and wants its gas station back. Each entity is heading to Manhattan Supreme Court to make its point.
When I first moved to Harlem and was looking at apartments to buy, I remember either my broker or another local telling me this farfetched, ridiculous statement about this corner…get ready for this, which was that it was being eyed by the Donald Trump himself. Did anyone else get fed this line when buying an apartment in South Harlem? I recall someone mentioning that Donald Trump was interested in the Harlem gas station because he wants to own property bookends on the westside of Central Park–one property already exists at Columbus Circle.
Crazy stuff huh? But now that I am reading this article, it makes me wonder what the City is really up to? If Mr. Elmore and his business partner own the gas station and they don’t want to sell it, shouldn’t that be the end of the discussion? Punto! What do you think?

Vegetarians turn away and don’t read this blog post! I was walking along Frederick Douglass Blvd today, who wouldn’t give how beautiful it is outside, and noticed that Harlem Shambles had a sign board outside announcing it is open for business. I walked in and locals were already inside checking out the selection of meats they are offering to start. According to their sign, they offer all meats that are local grass fed and all natural. Harlem Shambles is open every day from 10 am to 8 pm, Monday thru Saturday, and from 11-6 pm on Sunday. Stop by your new local butcher shop in Harlem at 2141 Frederick Douglass Blvd and check them out on Facebook as well!

The new nail salon that is opening on Frederick Douglass Blvd between 113th and 114th Street on the eastside of the street has a name! The place will be called Coco! Interesting. Maybe it’s named after that reality show on E!?
Apparently, the owners that are opening up this salon in Harlem are seasoned professionals. This will be their third nail salon in Manhattan. Plans to open Coco Nail Salon are slated for mid-September! So stay tuned.
