LINK. Overall 29 units are listed as sold and 4 are in contract (there are double listing marked as sold on the Streeteasy chart so it looks like more). Recent sales per square foot appear to be in the upper $500 range to even the low $700's. Most units are well below the $1 million mark but there appears to have been one penthouse taken off the market for the asking of $1.4 million. www.TheLoreNYC.com

LINK. Land Yoga will now represent South Harlem but will not be the first studio located uptown. There are two established Bikram Yoga outposts which individually represent East Harlem (second photo) and West Harlem (last photo). The Harlem Yoga Studio used to be located in the Mount Morris Park area but has since relocated to Central Harlem in the past months.

LINK. The NYCEDC has been trying to revive a failed former manufacturing site on 126th Street (just east of Amsterdam) that was given to Citarella to restore but when that luxury grocer did not achieve results, the city started an open call for bids last November: LINK. At the lower photos, one can see the area around 426-458 West 126th Street which consist of the old Taystee Cake complex and what's left of a large parking garage. Community Board 9 has been trying to rezone this section of Manhattanville (one avenue over from the main Columbia project) for mixed use so expect possible residential construction showing up in the final selected bid.
