DWELL: 114 WEST 130TH STREET IN CONTRACT

Harlem Bespoke: A two-family fixer upper at 114 West 130th Street went up on the market back in February for $2.1 million, then was reduced to $2 million and now has a contract out.  There are some original details intact within but brownstone really needs a good restoration budget.  Other than that, the location is just west of Lenox Avenue and is just 5 blocks away from the express trains.  More details and photos can be found on Streeteasy: LINK

CONSTRUCTION: 152 WEST 140TH RISES

Harlem Bespoke:  It appears that 152 West 140th on 7th Avenue has almost topped off in Central Harlem and should be ready sometimes by the first half of next year.  This mix-used building by the Strivers Row neighborhood made an interesting proposal earlier in the year when the digital artwork posted out front had major fashion retailers rendered as the anchor tenants.  This is probably all wishful thinking but at least the McDonalds next door updated their facade to match with the new neighbor.  Check out the aforementioned original rendering in our past post: LINK

BESPOKE: WORN IN NEW YORK AT MCNY

Tueday, December 11th, 6:30pm-8:30pm, Worn in New York discussion at Museum of the City of New York, 104th Street and Fifth Avenue. Join three distinctively fashionable New Yorkers – hip hop pioneer and artist Fab 5 Freddy; Executive Fashion Director of Cosmopolitan and Seventeen Aya Kanai; and artist/fabric designer Elizabeth Sweetheart (a.k.a. the Green Lady of Brooklyn) – for a candid and wide-ranging conversation about the meanings of what we choose to wear. From a long-lost straw hat, to green overalls, to a pair of (literally) life-changing boots, they’ll trade intimate sartorial stories and consider how clothing provides an endlessly fertile field for personal expression and communication, especially in a city as style-conscious as New York. Moderated by Emily Spivack, author of Worn in New York: 68 Sartorial Memoirs of the City.

DWELL: 228 LENOX OFF MARKET

Harlem Bespoke: Number 228 Lenox by 122nd Street arrived on the market in April for $5.25 million, then the fixer upper in the Mount Morris Park Historic District had gone up to $5.6 million in July but then was removed from the market this past August.  As previously discussed, the listing mentions that this is a commercial building and that the new owner would have to convert everything to a single-family home.  There are original details intact and the new Whole Foods is just a couple of blocks north but at this price point, most buyers would probably expect a turnkey property.  More details can be found on Streeteasy: LINK
