Around the corner from the Harlem Tavern on 116th Street is another new construction that has started to rise quickly since this past March. The concrete foundation was just being poured a couple of weeks back at 306-308 West 116th Street but passing by the development just west of FDB/8th Avenue, we noticed that two stories have already risen at the $5.3 million new residential building. As originally reported, an 8-story building will debut by spring 2013 and might look something like the rendering provided for the lot when it was sold: LINK.
