failed attempt to open a methadone clinic and thus everything is up for sale again. As previously mentioned, this large historic 2-family home also has a garage included and pretty much all of the original details intact which make things quite ideal for residential purposes once polished up. Express trains are also just across the street which makes this location one of best on Sugar Hill. More photos and details can be found on the broker site: LINK
The Real Deal has now revealed that university now plans to construct a 34-story residential tower that has nothing to do with the campus and will be the tallest building in all of Harlem. Apparently this will all be for students and faculty. Everything is a bit unclear here especially since the community agreement for the Manhattanville campus relegated the height of the building to not be so massive and this particular corner is next door to the low-rise residential part of the neighborhood.
If a tower was going to be built this tall, it would have made more sense in the middle of the industrial area just north of 125th Street since Columbia has since demolished the majority of the buildings on those blocks. Construction apparently will finish by 2022 if everything goes to schedule for what possible could be the tallest privately-owned student housing building in the city.
