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!

We have more Harlem real estate news to report. HarlemGal Inc received a news release recently announcing that Vornado Realty Trust has “completed the previously announced sale of a parcel of land known as Harlem Park located at 1800 Park Avenue (at 125th Street) in New York City for $66 million…” The sale was finalized in the last 48 hours.

Ask and you shall receive! That’s what Harlem resident, actor and TV star Neil Patrick Harris did back in March where he took his plea to twitter saying “he was looking for a Harlem brownstone.” He wanted a Harlem brownstone and he purchased a Harlem brownstone, according to The New York Post today.
The NY Post says, “Harris [and his partner] just bought a stunning $3.6 million townhouse at 2036 Fifth Ave., between West 125th and 126th streets. The five-story stunner has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and measures a sprawling 8,000 square feet. The sun-filled home includes two terraces, a backyard, chef’s kitchen and lots of space for a playroom and gym. The home is significantly bigger than the couple’s previous home, which was also in Harlem.” View pictures of the actual property here.
Congrats to Harris and his family on their new home. And a nice reminder for the rest of us in Harlem, if you’re rich and famous, you can pretty much get what your little heart desires in Harlem or anywhere in the City.

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 2270 and 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.

Several news outlets are reporting that Ichiro Suzuki, an outfielder for the Yankees, hit a home run in the rental market by renting an apartment at 111 Central Park North in Harlem. According to SportsGrid.com, Suzuki “is on the cutting edge [by moving to Harlem]. Everyone in New York knows that Harlem is the new Williamsburg.”
Curbed.com, The Real Deal and Business Insider all say that Suzuki is paying $23,500 a month for his new swanky pad that overlooks Central Park, not to mention he cut time off his commuting. Harlem is much closer to Yankee Stadium. The Yankee baseball player was living on the Upper Eastside prior to moving to Harlem.
The best part of this story is that the Japanese-born professional baseball player reportedly beat out Derek Jeter and A-Rod, who were considering buying the same place for a cool $9 million. Ahh, ya gotta love competition on and off the field!
