Harlem’s Historic Victoria Theater Redevelopment Reaches A Construction Milestone

June 30, 2019

In Harlem, the long-planned Victoria Theater redevelopment continues to inch forward reports NY Curbed.

Developers announced on Thursday that the Renaissance by Marriott hotel, which sits atop the historic theater, topped out at 26 stories, while its adjacent residential tower reached 27 stories.

Both the hotel and the residential tower, located at 233 West 125th Street, were designed by Aufgang Architects and developed by Exact Capital Group and Lam Group. The Renaissance hotel will have 210 rooms and a 5,000-square-foot ballroom; while the residential building will have 191 units, half of which will be affordable, the developers say.

Several details of historic Victoria Theater were preserved and restored, including its terra cotta facade and ornate lobby. “The theater’s historic facade, lobby, marquis and signage will be incorporated into this reimagined property, giving it the respect and honor it deserves as a significant part of Harlem’s history, culture, and architectural heritage,” real estate brokerage firm Lee & Associates’s website reads.

The project—which sits between Adam Clayton Powell Jr. and Frederick Douglass Boulevards—will include 25,000 square feet of retail space and a 25,000-square-foot arts center with two performance spaces and several arts and nonprofit organizations offices including the Apollo Theater Foundation, JazzMobile, the Classical Theater of Harlem, and the Harlem Arts Alliance.
