☞ REVIVE: La Celia Rises at 64 East 111th

Just not visiting a certain block for a couple of months often brings surprises as is the case for the abandoned lot at 64 East 111th Street. The above photo taken this week shows a massive new construction rising between Madison and Park with eight floors complete at this point thus far.

We received some news in our inbox yesterday about the new building rising in East Harlem which will be known as La Celia.  This new construction is apparently 12-stories tall from what we can tell (click on image to enlarge) and will have 123 units in total once complete. The building will be an affordable coop with prices ranging from $140,000 - $195,000 for studios,  $150,000 - $290,000 for 1 bedrooms and $175,000 - $373,000 for 2 bedroom apartments.  Construction for the L+M project is expected to top off by September of this year and the lottery for apartments will be up sometimes in Spring 2012.  If all goes well with construction timelines, La Celia is expected to open sometimes in October 2012.

  1. I am so happy that Harlem is being revitalized. It brings a great look and a spirit of pride when walking through neighborhoods that were once run down. The key idea is just to make sure that all these beautiful buildings are affordable for the beautiful people in and around the neighborhood.
