Development At 152 West 140th Street, Harlem NY

April 28, 2016


New York Yimby reports that as Harlem’s development boom stretches northward, investors are taking aim at the more densely built-out and better preserved blocks in central Harlem. One longtime owner hopes to redevelop a lot at 152 West 140th Street, on the corner of Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard.

A small seafood market currently occupies the prime corner lot. New building applications reveal that a mix of medical offices, retail, and apartments will replace the little storefront. The eight-story building will host 8,600 square feet of retail on the ground floor and 9,400 square feet of medical offices on the second floor. Fifty-eight apartments will be stacked on top of those, ranging from seven to 11 units on each story. Since the apartments will be spread across 39,431 square feet of residential space, average units will clock in at a rental-sized 679 square feet.

No parking is included because the lot is just small enough to fly beneath the city’s zoning requirements for cars.

Ryan Pedram’s KP Development is behind the project, and Yan Architect & Planner applied for the permits.

The 9,900-square-foot lot last changed hands for an undisclosed amount in 2008.

Hopefully this project will fit in with the historic and attractive architecture that characterizes this part of the neighborhood. Several historic districts nearby help define this area of Harlem with their row houses and pre-war co-op buildings, including Sugar Hill, Striver’s Row, and Astor Row.
