In the vibrant heart of Harlem, a new boutique residential development stands as a homage to the legacy of John Mercer Langston.

Keller Williams New York City (KWNYC), renowned for its expertise in residential and commercial real estate, proudly announces its exclusive role in marketing and selling The Mercer, located at 60 East 127th Street in Harlem, NY.

Led by KWNYC agent Reginald Louissaint, The Mercer offers a unique blend of modern luxury and historical significance. Developed by attorney Steven Barshov and designed by The Thread Collective, this six-story, eight-unit elevator building exudes sophistication.

John Mercer Langston’s pioneering spirit infuses every aspect of The Mercer. Langston, a distinguished figure in American history, was the first African American elected to public office in the United States and a founding dean of Howard University’s law school. An oil-on-canvas painting by artist Steve Ellis graces the ground-floor lobby, paying homage to Langston’s enduring influence, and relationship to the renowned Harlem legendary poet Langston Hughes.

The building is comprised of six studio units ranging in size from 450-to-480 square feet, each with a balcony. It also houses a penthouse unit: a 1000-square-foot, two-bedroom, one-bath apartment with direct elevator entry into the unit, front and rear balconies, skylights, custom built-ins, and exclusive use of the 40% finished roof deck. Additionally, there is a 1465-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath duplex, complete with a windowed home office/den, a single-car garage and private rear yard.  

The building’s amenities include in-floor radiant heat, individually metered heating and air conditioning, tankless water heaters, and washer-dryer connections. Residents also enjoy access to a roof deck with breathtaking views, a basement storage room for each apartment, and bicycle storage.


Conveniently located near public transportation, The Mercer offers easy access to Metro-North, subway lines, and bus routes, ensuring seamless connectivity throughout the city.

Originally intended for mixed-use occupancy, The Mercer became a reality through Barshov’s vision and dedication. Louissaint’s appointment as an exclusive sales agent underscores KWNYC’s commitment to excellence and personalized service.

For those seeking a harmonious blend of history and modernity, The Mercer awaits. Explore this exceptional property listed on the KWNYC website and discover the epitome of Harlem living.
