BESPOKE KIDS: THE BILLION OYSTER PROJECT

Saturday, July 27th, 12:00PM–2:00PM,  The Billion Oyster Project at The Baylander, West Harlem Piers on the Hudson at 125th Street.  Come see the Billion Oyster Project on the Baylander’s Jungle Deck. Learn about the project's latest effort to restore our harbor!  Oysters are the green way to filter New York waterways and used to be one of the most abundant species with the local ecosystem.  The Billion Oyster Project has been successfully re-introducing the bivalves back in the greater New York Harbor and has a goal of one billion oysters in the waters by the time 2035 rolls around.  More details at the city parks site: LINK

DWELL: PRICE REDUCTION AT FAISON FIREHOUSE


Harlem Bespoke:  The Faison Firehouse Theater and the adjacent lot was up for sale for $13 million earlier on in 2018 then reduced to $10 million months later and now is going for $8.999 million. We have been informed that the adjacent lot is not included with the new asking and just the building will be for sale.  The 29-feet-wide facade was originally a Beaux Arts firehouse which has been converted into a performance theater and living space over the years. This is one of the highest price points in the neighborhood so a developer might end up purchasing the unique property.  Express trains at 125th Street are only a block away and the FDB commercial corridor is also short walk from the location.  More details on Streeteasy: LINK

CONSTRUCTION: GLASS AT 614 WEST 131ST STREET

Harlem Bespoke:  A couple of the more ambitious buildings rising over by 12th Avenue just northe of 125th Street are starting to really come together and Number 614 West 131st Street is already getting glass installed.  Columbia University's $7 billion Manhattanville campus broke ground a decade ago and three buildings have since been completed.  These two new additions have some interesting diagonal intersections on each level and should bring a little more excitement to the pretty straightforward designs we have seen so far.  Check out the original rendering in our past post: LINK
