BESPOKE: SALAD AND SPRING ROLLS AT THE EXPAT


Harlem Bespoke:  One of the things about Vietnamese food that is so refreshing is all of the greens that come with the plates of crispy spring rolls but many do not know what they are there for.  Most folks are familiar with the Chinese style variation and just dip it in the sauce but there this more to the picture for the delicious Indochine appetizer that can be found uptown at The Expat.

READ: SENDERO VERDE RECEIVES INITIAL FINANCING

Harlem Bespoke: An article published this week announced that the nation's most ambitious passive housing complex has received a green light for the important initial financing.  Sendero Verde will also be one of the largest affordable housing complexes to be built in the past several decades for the east side and will be constructed within an abandoned city block by East 111th and Madison.  The initial $223 million will start up the first phase of the 100 percent affordable housing development at 1681 Madison and there will be 700 apartments available when the massive 37-story building finishes up in the coming years : LINK

DWELL: 327 CONVENT AVENUE SOLD IN JULY

Harlem Bespoke:  Number 327 Convent Avenue by 144th Street arrived on the market in June for the asking of $3.7 million, then was reduced to $3.4 million within a month, had a contract out by last fall and now records show that everything closed for $3.45 million in July of this month.  As previously mentioned, this landmark townhouse has an amazing amount of restored original details and has been renovated in a 2-family layout but is priced on the lower end for this block.  Apparently the building is still classified as an SRO but a Certificate of Non Harassment is in place. Other than that, this is one of the record-breaking blocks to be found uptown and the express trains are just a 5 minute walk aways on 145th Street.  More on Streeteasy: LINK
